Miyazaki Is Confident He Can Handle Bloodborne DLC and Dark Souls 3 Simultaneously

Hidetaka Miyazaki is acting currently as the director for both Bloodborne DLC and the new Dark Souls, Dark Souls 3. Some people think this will lower the quality and harm both projects as they are big and need total focus during their development. Miyazaki talked about  how he will handle both in an interview with Gamespot.

Although Miyazaki has a different opinion, he is confident he can do both at the same time since it isn’t his first time managing two projects at the same time. He mentioned the time he was doing Demon’s Souls and Armoured Core: For Answer at the same time.

“The bottom line is, I think I can do it. I believe I can do both the Bloodborne DLC and Dark Souls 3,” he said. “This isn’t the first time I’ve had to work on two projects at the same time.”

“When I was doing Demon’s Souls, I was also working on Armoured Core: For Answer. Even for the original Dark Souls, I acted as producer and director.”


Miyazaki stated that not all of the director-level work concerning Dark Souls 3 is on him since there is another director besides him that he can delegate some of his duties to. This will help him focus more on the Bloodborne DLC while at the same time, help in the important development parts of Dark Souls 3.

“In the case of Bloodborne, although I was the lead game director, there was another director level person that also contributed,” he explained. “This is the same for Dark Souls 3.”

“Actually, [Yui] Tanimura-san, the director of Dark Souls 2, has already joined the [Dark Souls 3] team, which will allow me to work on core gameplay design while other things are taken care of.”

Miyazaki previously said that he wanted to work on something new and that Dark Souls 3 will be a ”turning point” in the franchise.
