After the successful reception of the Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree trailer, Hidetaka Miyazaki went on to speak with IGN about different aspects of the company.

While discussing some other aspects of the company, the interviewer asked about Dark Souls 2, the From Software game that he didn’t direct.

Miyazaki defended the game, saying it was one of the best titles of From Software and has delivered many ideas that are carried out in the rest of the series.

Looking at what ideas Dark Souls 2 produced, it was the transition from linear to open-ended gameplay in which two of the From Software games, Elden Ring and Sekiro: Shadow Die Twice, carried on.

While many will consider this statement as a defensive move, it holds rationality as Elden Ring got that much commercial and critical acclaim due to its game design as a breathtaking open world.
