A set of character designs, including a possible stage concept art, appeared on Malaysian production company Passion Republic's online portfolio: http://www.passionrepublic.com/en/work.html A company that has worked with AAA gaming developers and publishers before.
The designs are not credited in any way but clearly depict Soul Calibur characters. The fact that the designs are completely new and that there are some interesting changes for certain characters (like Natsu's corrupted arm and different weapon styles) could hint at possible Soul Calibur 6 designs.

The uncredited character designs:









A concept art called "Sacred City":

Edit:
It turns out the designs were just an internal effort of Passion Republic to enhance their portfolio.

Do I even want that? I feel like I'm legit gonna start getting red in the face from seeing a next gen Ivy

Reboot?

Natsu and Sophitia (lookin young and good) in the same game makes me think reboot. Nightmare looks fucking sick.

Lizardman please.

No Lizardman no buy.

Sometimes outsourcing companies give pitches to bigger companies, something like "this is what we bring to the table"

No real confirmation of anything, imo
Yep, that's why there is a big question mark in the title. ;)
But for months things have been hinting at an upcoming announcement of Soul Calibur 6, it is the series 20th anniversary after all. Gamescom and TGS were in the talks...

A while back the Soul Calibur FB had a poll on what characters people wanted back for a new game.

I was really sad to see "Lizardman" and "Aeon" were split into two characters and both ended up on page 4 out of 5. I think if they combined those votes he'd at least be on page 3 if not 2.
I'M CONCERNED, OKAY?!

Yeah it could be a case of Namco sending art tests around, but I dont think they would outsource char designs really ...

For the love of God give me a Soul Caliber 6 that is basically a reboot with most of the original cast / fan favorites and heavy single player content.

I will give you all my money

None of these designs are really speaking to me, but I'm definitely on board for more SoulCalibur. (P.S. We need Hwang back please.)

what did they do to nightmare
Well it makes sense I guess. It is no longer a guy in a suit when Siegfried was being controlled by Soul Edge. but is now the sentient malice of the sword.

So a more demonic looking Nightmare makes sense, of a demonic sword possessing an old suit of armor.

I want Cervantes back.

Or another dual wielding sword user.

First picture is "not Naruto, we swear" Natsu




The others... kind of a mixed bag. Last Kilik and middle Sophitia are all right I guess. Nightmare looks a little overdone.

I should be excited at the idea that a new SC is coming at all, but I can't help but critique...

Lizardman please.

No Lizardman no buy.

That Nightmare looks like something out of Silent Hill.

I like Right Kilik, and I'd like any of the three Sophitias (Middle I suppose is most true to character, Right is personal preference, because reasons.)

New Soulcalibur mobile game incoming!

EDIT: character designs look just flamboyant enough over their originals to fill in for lack of compelling gameplay...

Still don't believe it. The series is dead.

However, if it does happen, don't count on a Sophitia boob window making the cut lol. Maybe the middle design would be alright.
But then there's the issue of Ivy.. yeah, I don't envy Namco's job with making designs that are 'acceptable' in 2016.

god I hate that new blonde ninja.
Right? And if you look up her backstory, it's pretty much "Naruto, but a girl"



Anyway, there are some more pictures that aren't in the OP. They look more refined:

Soul Calibur always has sexy designs if that's what you mean. If Taki could get in with her nipples visible in a mesh suit or whatever... this is nothing. Come on man.
