In a newly realeased interview with 4gamer.net, Miyazaki revealed From Software have 3 internal projects at the moment.

Project 1: ARPG with dark fantasy setting similar to DS
Project 2: A reboot/new idea from previous franchise
Project 3: something new

Weird to see my twitter source as a thread....


anyways, since twitter had limited characters I couldn't put much info

For first project, it seemed like action RPG with dark fantasy setting but approached from different angle than Dark Souls
For second project, it could be a reboot but also a new game with ideas that came from their previous franchises.
For third project, he says it's something different from what the company has been doing previously. He says it will be a bit weird
.
Edit: more from xenosaga

Miyzaki's personally wants to make a mixture of fantasy and mech, something like The Vision of Escaflowne

But he did rule out fantasy + mech as one of the working titles.

Miyazaki confirmed one the projects is an Armored Core game.

Sorry to fans who've been waiting for new Armored Core. Its concept is still charming even now.

I think Armored Core can re-sublimate with another interesting valuable game. And many of our staffs want to make new AC

Personally AC was also what started my career so I have fondness of it. Of course we don't not make a new Armored Core.

I found the last sentence to be a bit weird so I asked the person who translated it if it was a typo and he said that Miyazaki literally said "We don't have an option to not make a new [Armored Core] game."

That Soulsborne money doing work

1. Bloodborne 2 or another souls-like game?
2. Armored Core?
3. New IP previously reported on for consoles/PC + PSVR.
I sincerely hope it's not a Bloodborne 2, I fucking love that game so much but I'm hoping they do a Demons Souls -> Dark Souls style transition, tried a new concept with mitigated risk due to Sony support, was successful, take it multiplat.

I know not everybody is on board with a Bloodborne sequel, but I need more Bloodborne so bad. Even an inferior sequel would be welcome. Just give me more Bloodborne.

METAL WOLF CHAOS GOD KING OBAMA EDITION!
One can only hope

SUCK ON MY MISSILE PUNCH

But yeah, please no fucking bloodborne 2. After Dark souls 3 I have no faith that it would be as good as the first one. Sequel for sequel sake to please the fanboys, ugh

Bloodborne is one of my favorite games but I'll be hot-pissed if they announce a sequel as their next Souls-like.

I can take a new rebooted Armored Core, that series can use a new coat of paint.
Another dark fantasy game seems somewhat surprising unless it's a berserk game.

Bloodborne did quite well so i'd be very surprised if Sony didn't get them to do a sequel.

Reboot could be Armored Core, iirc Miyazaki said he wanted to revisit it.

Really hoping for a Kings Field reboot. (yes i know thats how Demon's Souls started). Though i'd be its Armored Core.
I would also love a souls gaming a new setting.

If any of them have anything to do with Armored Core, Tenchu or Otogi, I'm a happy person.
