According to the latest rumours, From Software's next project could be a sci-fi RPG game. Windows Central Gaming's Miles Dompier states that he has heard some rumblings about such a game, which is currently in pre-production.

Japanese developer From Software are currently working hard on their next major title Elden Ring, which still does not have a release date and we're yet to see some proper gameplay footage, even though the recent leak offered us a small glimpse at what to expect from the game.

What many From Software fans would certainly want to know is what the future holds for this popular Japanese studio. We know From Software have many IPs that are waiting to be resurrected. After releasing three fantasy-themed games with the fourth one being just around the corner, it's safe to assume that Hidetaka Miyazaki and From Software would love to do something different and according to the latest rumours, they may just do that.

In the latest video over on YouTube, Windows Central Gaming's Miles Dompier states that he has heard some rumblings about From Software's next project, which is apparently a sci-fi action RPG. Dompier does not reveal much, only that the game is currently in pre-production and he speculates that Microsoft and From Software could partner up to make this a Microsoft-published game. 

"I have heard some rumblings about sci-fi From Software title, that is currently in pre-production but it's really hard to say if any of that is legitimate," Miles said in the video at the 4:40 mark.

We suggest you take this with a huge grain of salt just like any other rumour, leak or unconfirmed info. It's safe to say that the rumour sounds pretty exciting but until we get more solid info on this, don't think too much of it.

That being said, Hidetaka Miyazaki already revealed that he "definitely wants to bring the Miyazaki Touch” to sci-fi and mecha games. It's worth mentioning that From Software's Armored Core games did poorly in terms of sales as well as critically compared to the Souls series so that's one big reason to move on from the franchise but, let's just wait and see, perhaps the studio have some major plans for this one.
