Hidetaka Miyazaki Talks About Armored Core Series and Its Future

Hidetaka Miyazaki, the president and director of From Software, has said that the mecha-action franchise has a somewhat good future if the game sticks to what it is good at. The Dystopian vision is a key part of the game and can play a major role in its future.

The original Armored Core was in 1997 and was quite successful due to its gameplay. The series usually includes massive explosions with anti-corporate and large oil spillage themes. All of these are good ideas that have powered the massive mechs before their latest game Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon. It became the biggest launch on PC for the studio.

In an interview with IGN Japan, Hidetaka Miyazaki said “The Armored Core series is very important to FromSoftware” This showed the dedication that the studio has for the continuation of the series. Miyazaki further stated “We have a strong will to continue it in the future. I believe Armored Core 6 was a success.” We can be sure that the future of the franchise is strong.

The later comments of Hidetaka Miyazaki further clarified the situation. Even though fans were having a blast with the mechs, the quote “not everything was perfect” means something is amiss. “There is still room for improvement, so I have no intention of stopping there,” We can expect more Armored Core based on these statements. Hidetaka Miyazaki further adds that Armored Core 6 received multiple post-launch. These updates not only buffed certain weapons but also added ranked matches.


Despite getting attention from the developers and a good reception from fans, Armored Core 6 has yet to see a full expansion like Elden Ring. It’s not like one should hope for such an expansion but having a choice to have one would be nice. Fires of Rubicon was pretty good from a gameplay perspective.
