Manager confirms Demon's Souls sequel likely won't ever happen

Fans of the 5-year old, Demon’s Souls, were given a glimmer of hope back in January when an insider teased a possible sequel. However, while the current Dark Souls franchise may fill that void for some, John Harden, PR manager of the game's North American publisher Atlus, recently stated, “can 100 percent confirm there will NOT be a Demon’s Souls 2.”

In terms of differences between Demon's Souls and the aforementioned Dark Souls, both games are in many ways similar being of the action role-playing genre, but with the ladder considered the more successful of the two, spawning an upcoming sequel. Comparatively, however, many fans have concluded 2011's Dark Souls improved upon many aspects of Demon's Souls, introducing new, and arguably better, combat, story and character movements.     

As Harden went on to mention, a sequel to Demon’s Souls would have to be “Sony’s call,” and that Demon’s Souls is “one big Gordian knot,” according to the Internet. Yet, later telling Gamespot, Harden offered somewhat of an assurance saying a Demon Souls 2 is “*technically*” not impossible, but wanted to keep fans’ expectations in check considering “Sony [Japan] owns the IP.”

So, g1s what do you think? Is there really a need for another Demon Soul’s game? Or has Dark Souls filled the role? Be sure to share your thoughts in the comment section down below!
