FromSoftware Has “a Strong Desire” to Continue Making Armored Core Games

"Armored Core 6 was a success. On the other hand, not everything was perfect, and there is still room to make it better, so I have no intention of stopping there," says Hidetaka Miyazaki.

Armored Core 6 Fires of Rubicon

After more than a decade of wowing the industry with its gene-defining Soulslike games, last year, FromSoftware brought the Armored Core franchise back with Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon. The mech action title received widespread acclaim from critics and audiences alike, but is the wait for the next game in the series going to be as long as it was for Armored Core 6? That much remains to be seen, but at the very least, the studio has every intention of making more games in the franchise.

Speaking in a recent interview with IGN Japan, FromSoftware boss Hidetaka Miyazaki called Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon a “success”, and said that FromSoftware has “a strong desire” to continue making more instalments in the series. That said, even though Miyazaki says the studio hopes to further improve the series’ quality with future outings, right now, nothing specific has been decided.

“As you can see from the fact that we made Armored Core 6, the Armored Core series is very important to FromSoftware. We have a strong will to continue to make it in the future,” he said. “I think Armored Core 6 was a success. On the other hand, not everything was perfect, and there is still room to make it better, so I have no intention of stopping there. However, nothing concrete has been decided yet.”

In October last year, voice actor Yasuyuki Kase, who voiced Rusty (V.IV) in Armored Core 6, revealed that the game had sold around 2.8 million units worldwide.

In our review of the game, we awarded it a score of 9/10, saying, “Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is a wonderful return to form for a franchise that has been dormant for a very long time. Its unique mission structure that encourages experimentation, coupled with an insane level of customization is one of the game’s major highlights, and while its story takes time to get started, no two missions ever really feel the same thanks to varied objectives and excellent encounter design.” Read the full review through here.

Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
