If you played the original Dark Souls you are probably wondering when Dark Souls 2 is going to be released. According to Shibuya, the team working on Dark Souls II is “substantially bigger”. He points that the studio has nearly doubled the team focused on world creation alone, in addition to adding new members across every other department. When asked what state the game is currently in, he estimates it being around 25% finished. Sadly, if the current pace of development holds, we won't be seeing Dark Souls 2 in 2013.
