A new potential teaser by a FromSoftware staff member has ignited rumors about a potentially new Armored Core title. The header image spotted on a Twitter profile has led fans to believe that new game in the mecha franchise could be coming.
A new header image was spotted on FromSoftware marketing manager Yasunori Ogura’s Twitter profile. Various sources spoke with Yasunori Ogura and have since confirmed that the initial rumor was just mistaken hype, and that they did not mean to cause any confusion. There is no Armored Core sequel or remake in the works at FromSoftware, according to the response. Ogura changed the image on their profile to one of a marketing image for Armored Core: Verdict Day. This was a 2013 action game developed by FromSoftware for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It was the 15th game in the series all about building massive destructive robots and blowing up other people’s robots.
Armored Core is a pretty old and beloved franchise. so it’s understandable that the mistake could happen. The company president Hidetaka Miyazaki hinted at a possible development for the Armored Core series in June of last year. So fans were pretty excited when they saw the change. Miyazaki said for fans to “please wait a little while longer” for official information.
Now we have confirmation that this was just a tease, and that no new game is in the works.
As of right now, nothing has been confirmed beyond the initial dismissal. And as the team at FromSoftware is presumably hard at work on Elden Ring, it makes sense. The new game is collaborative effort between game director Hidetaka Miyazaki and fantasy novelist George R. R. Martin, the mind behind A Song of Ice and Fire,and will be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. With a massive open world and completely new setting, it’s a very big project, so I imagine they’re mostly focused on that for now.
