Miyazaki Working On Bloodborne DLC & Dark Souls 3 Simultaneously

In an interview with Gamespot, Hidetaka Miyazaki has revealed that he will indeed be directing both Dark Souls 3 and the Bloodborne DLC. He insisted that the quality of neither project will be hampered by work on the other. It would not be the first time he has worked on two projects at once. His simultaneous work on Demon’s Souls and Armoured Core: For Answer is an example of this.

Miyazaki will delegate some of the bigger developmental tasks to others so that he can focus on the game design. In the interview he stated:

“In the case of Bloodborne, although I was the lead game director, there was another director level person that also contributed,” he explained. “This is the same for Dark Souls 3.

“Actually, [Yui] Tanimura-san, the director of Darks Souls 2, has already joined the [Dark Souls 3] team, which will allow me to work on core gameplay design while other things are taken care of.”

There hasn’t been any word on what exactly the Bloodborne DLC will be. It’s expected that we will hear an announcement at the Tokyo Game Show later this year. There are lofty expectations though, considering the quality of the brilliant Artorias of the Abyss expansion for the original Dark Souls. It’s likely that the Tokyo Game Show will also bring additional info on Dark Souls 3, perhaps even a release date.

Personally, I have every faith that Miyazaki will deliver on quality experiences for both titles. Any game that has released with his name on it has been of a extremely high quality and I don’t expect that to change anytime soon.

Dark Souls 3 will release sometime in 2016 for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4. The Bloodborne DLC has yet to be unveiled but will be playable exclusively on PS4. Hidetaka Miyazaki will be serving as director of both projects.
