FromSoftware boss Hidetaka Miyazaki stated the studio has not ruled out making Elden Ring 2 or another expansion.

FromSoftware announced Shadow of the Erdtree, Elden Ring’s first expansion, which will be released in June 2024. The Shadow of the Erdtree gameplay trailer was showcased on Bandai Namco’s official YouTube channel on February 21, 2024. On the same day, the studio revealed that Elden Ring has sold almost 23 million copies worldwide.

Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of Elden Ring and president of FromSoftware, was recently interviewed by IGN ahead of the game’s upcoming expansion release. In the interview, Miyazaki was asked if there was a possibility for a sequel for Elden Ring or another expansion for the game coming in the near future, and he responded positively.

Elden Ring 2 or More DLC Coming Soon?

During the interview with IGN, Hidetaka Miyazaki was asked if Shadow of the Erdtree is the end of Elden Ring’s story or if the studio is working on more expansion in the future. In addition, the interviewer asked if the studio would consider working on Elden Ring 2.

Miyazaki responded that the studio might work on more expansions, but they are not working on anything. He added that the studio is not ruling out a potential sequel, and the team will work on something in the future.

We don’t want to say this is the end of the Elden Ring saga for now. I think we said a similar thing at the end of Dark Souls 3. We didn’t want to flatten those possibilities or put a pin in them just at that time. And it’s a similar story with Elden Ring. We don’t want to discourage the possibilities for that. There might be more ideas in the future.

We don’t have any current plans to make a second DLC or a sequel, but we definitely don’t want to snuff out that possibility. We think that there could well be something the future.
