PlayStation 3 exclusive Demon's Souls may already have a spiritual sequel in the works - From Software's "Project Dark" - but Sony may charge ahead with a proper sequel to last year's brilliant role-playing game. Eventually.
Addressing a long list of questions from readers of the Guardian Games Blog, Takeshi Kajii from Sony Japan Studios says a sequel is possible.
"At the moment, my answer is 'no sequel!'," Kajii cautions. "However, we have been encouraged by all the players, and this title is so well supported, and besides we like this title so much… Well, this is my own feeling, but I think one day we could bring you another Demon's Souls..."
Whether From Software would be involved is unclear. Hidetaka Miyazaki, producer on the From side, defers to Kajii on the matter.
From is currently working on Project Dark for Namco Bandai. That game is coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, with more details promised next year.
