All great things must come to an end, and a great thing Dark Souls truly was. While you roam the decrepit streets, catacombs and castles of the Kingdom of Lothric, keep that firmly in mind. Cherish each new location, every new encounter and all of Dark Souls 3's climactic boss fights. You won't be experiencing anything quite like it for some time.

'Dark Souls 3': The Final Chapter In The 'Souls' Franchise

I'm considering Dark Souls 3 to be the big closure on the series. That's not just limited to me, but From Software and myself together want to aggressively make new things in the future. Dark Souls 3 will mark the last game where the development project began before I became president. The next title will be a game that was conceived while I was president.
I believe that From Software has to create new things. There will be new types of games coming from us, and Dark Souls 3 is an important marker in the evolution of From Software.

This was a statement that Hidetaka Miyazaki, the genius president of FromSoftware, made in an interview with IGN some months ago, something which he has repeated in numerous interviews since. But it's worth reiterating.

The Souls games are some of the most unique and challenging titles to emerge in recent years. It has become my personal favorite trilogy in gaming history and I sincerely hope that those who are playing its final chapter now will revel in the experiences and difficulties it's bound to throw your way.

FromSoftware will undoubtedly continue to develop games along the same vein. Difficult challenges and innovative gameplay will be at the forefront of their design for years to come and I'm terribly excited to see what they'll introduce to the world following the inevitable release of DLC for Dark Souls 3.

Are you sad to see the 'Dark Souls' franchise go?
