Despite the success that From Software and Bandai Namco have had with the Dark Souls franchise, Atlus has no intention of continuing the series that started it all.
"[We] can 100% confirm there will NOT be a Demon Souls 2," John Hardin, the PR Manager at Atlus said in the comments section of the PlayStation Blog.
I find this decision a bit odd, as Dark Souls has proven to be insanely popular. Wouldn't it make financial sense for Sony and Atlus to attempt to put together a sequel to Demon's Souls? It would be a fantastic exclusive to have for PlayStation 4 owners. Perhaps there just isn't the development talent available to pull it off?
Would you have liked to seen a sequel to Demon's Souls, or is Dark Souls enough to satiate your need for punishing difficulty?
