Sure. Rule of thumb: if it makes money, then sooner or later, you're going to see more of it.

Not necessarily. There are many great games out there that never got a sequel or finished in the middle of a story arch. Bloodborne isn't exactly a call of duty in terms of sales and FromSoft have no more obligations to Sony on paper. 

I'm certain that sony owns the bb IP considering that sony approached from software to co-develope a new ip.

 Well if they do we won't see it until 9th gen or they'd have dropped it like they did with nioh 2. 

It's a pity but FromSoft really do need to update their engine. Been on a souls borne binge layely and Darksouls 3 still has the feel like it's a well remastered 7th gen title and bloodnorne isn't aging well at all on the visual front.

Ironically I fancied playing it on Tuesday and I thought it DID hold up well visually, lol :P



My theory is that they are on hiatus from Souls in order to figure out how to make open/semi-open freeroam DS that stays true to core mechanisms of previous games.



My guess would be that Dark Souls is probably done, at least for now. Bloodborne will likely get a sequel at some point, but right now I'm guessing From and Miyazaki are taking a break from those types of games. I have no doubt that they'll return to the genre in the future, but it doesn't seem like they are in any rush to do so. And it's not like the genre is going away anyway. Other developers are doing things in the Soulsborne style.



I wouldn't be surprised if a Demon's Souls remaster or even a remake is on the way. Bloodborne 2 is definitely happening. There absolutely no reason why it wouldn't. When is the only question. A new Dark Souls of some sort will likely happen to but I see that not happening for a long time.

If there is it'll be a while before we ever see either franchise again.



their new game seems much more up my ally anyway. and maybe they can finally make a new armored core So I for one wouldn't mind



I hated bloodborne but i loved the Dark Souls Trilogy, so i hope at least Dark Souls keep on going.

Hmm. Isn't Darksouls and bloodborne semi open world anyway...yeah. Hell the Dark souls is more open than some semi open like DA: Inquisition. A souls-borne open world would remove the metroid vania level design which is pretty much the core aspect of what makes souls games fun. 

Kinda...you can move around freely to a certain degree, usually after you unlock some door/raise some gate, but I was thinking more of game that has DNA of Souls when it comes to "levels" and open/semi-open world/exploration of typical open-world RPG.

This is my wishful thinking f course, since I believe From is more than capable of creating such game that would not compromise core of what Souls games are, yet expanding on formula.

Yeah, I don't want Soulsborne games to be any more open than the first Dark Souls.  Basically corridors/rooms/arenas, but with intertwining paths and shortcuts.  I like that the designers control how and when you face obstacles for the most part.  That gets lost when you go open world.
