Atlus has confirmed via the U.S. PlayStation Blog that a successor to Demon’s Souls is not in development for the PlayStation 4.
“PS Blog Exclusive: can 100% confirm there will NOT be a Demon Souls 2. :(,” wrote PR boss John Hardin.
Rumors have cropped up in recent months that Demon’s Souls 2 was in development, though nothing official was ever confirmed.
The original Demon’s Souls was released as a PlayStation 3 exclusive in fall 2009, becoming a cult hit among gamers. From Software eventually released a spiritual successor, Dark Souls, two years later to critical acclaim and strong sales.
Meanwhile, Dark Souls 2 is scheduled to ship for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next month.
