According to Kitao, FromSoftware has not changed its development approach – “Work hard to create something interesting and valuable”. The manager was also surprised by the size of the audience: “There are no other words than gratitude”.
As far as Shadow of the Erdtree is concerned, fans still have to be patient: “We still have to wait a little bit, but development is progressing well. After [дополнением к] Bloodborne, in [Shadow of the Erdtree] there will be new battles and characters”.
