Still hoping for a Demon's Souls sequel?
Well, don't hold your breath. Atlus PR manager John Hardin shot down such a possibility in a response to a fan at the PlayStation Blog . When asked if we might eventually see Demon's Souls 2 , Hardin answered definitively:
"Can 100 percent confirm there will NOT be a Demon's Souls 2. :("
The fan wanted to know if we might see the sequel on the PlayStation 4. The problem is that Sony Japan owns the IP so as Hardin says, "that's Sony's call." He later clarified to GameSpot that it isn't "technically impossible" but you probably shouldn't count on it. Don't despair, though, that's what Dark Souls 2 is for, right?
The latter launches this month, so take solace in that.
