Think Dark Souls II Might Go Next-Gen? Think Again
Dark Souls II is one of those games that will probably steal the spotlight from most other RPG’s released this year. Despite an initially niche appeal, the franchise has acquired a massive following, and its March release date can’t really come fast enough for those waiting.
But what about Dark Souls II on PS4 and Xbox One? Last week there was a rumour that From Software were looking at porting the game over soon, but that doesn’t appear to be true at all.

Co-director of Dark Souls II Yui Tanimura spoke in an interview with Edge about the possibility of a next-gen version of Dark Souls II, saying that the studio hasn’t even begun to think about it.
“We have not put any thought into this yet, so I unfortunately can’t answer at this point.”
When asked why Dark Souls II wasn’t created for next-generation hardware in the first place, Tanimura answered that From Software wanted to capitalise on Xbox 360 and PS3 markets instead of trying to reach a much smaller one at this time. A great business move if you ask me.
Tanimura also stated that the studio was hard at work on the PC port of the title, as they don’t want to repeat the “half-assed” job they did with the first Dark Souls port. The PC version of the game is set to release a few weeks after its console counterparts.
Dark Souls II is set to release on March 14th for Xbox 360 and PS3.
