Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree and Armored Core 6 aren’t FromSoftware’s only current projects. Dark Souls devs are working on another game.
The LinkedIn profile of Kenneth Khan – director of FromSoftware – posted an entry regarding an unannounced game. It is supposed to be in development from January 2022. What could it be?
There certainly wasn’t any DLC announced for Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree four weeks ago. It is true that he is not on the list, but that seems unlikely.
Instead, it has the upcoming Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, which Chan is co-directing. So what could this unannounced project be?

In a previously cited June 2020 interview for 4gamer.net, Hidetaka Miyazaki, President and CEO of FromSoftware, revealed that in the medium to long term, he would like to create a fantastic game with a higher degree of abstraction than that characterized by the studio’s previous work. Presumably this is the unannounced project seen in Kenneth Chan’s profile.
However, is it a sequel to an existing series, like Elden Ring 2? Or maybe a completely new IP address? We won’t know the answers to these questions anytime soon.
It is worth adding that FromSoftware was working on several games simultaneously. In 2016, the Japanese developer faced “three and a half games” (not including Dark Souls III DLC). They turned out to be Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Elden Ring, Armored Core VI, and Deracine (that’s the “middle”).
