In Hong Kong today there was an Xbox Fan Festival which I have covered in more detail here.

At the event Microsoft mentioned that there are lots of other games and showed the below slide with the pictures of each game. On the slide there is the image for Dark Souls 3 and Microsoft confirmed that all the games on this slide will be out before Chinese new year.

The new year is February 8th, therefore we can ascertain that Dark Souls 3 should release before February 8th 2016.



EDIT:

Does that include The Division, a game due March 6 in the west? That perhaps gives this some doubt for me.

GW2 is slated for Spring 2016 too.

Sometime after the division.

Oh good point.

Well they did say all those games on that slide will launch before Feb 8th, maybe Microsoft are wrong?

Wow, sooner than I expected, but I'm not complaining!

Played the hell out of Bloodborne and making my way through SOTFS right now. Hope Bloodeborne DLC comes out before then.

Not sure I buy The Division releasing in China a month before releasing in the west. Perhaps they said MOST of those games - as that would be far more likely.

But The Division is also shown there which has a confirmed release date of March 8th.

Same lol

I would love to get through BB DLC before then, if not I'll be juggling both. Still have to finish my SOTFS playthrough.

Sweet! But aren't there usually variations in release dates for Souls games? I don't recall them having worldwide release dates.

That would be great. I'm kinda expecting it to be the end of March though eventually.

It would be awsome if true, but I think it will be more April/March 2016, similar to Dark Souls 2

I kind of wanted the Bloodborne DLC to come out before DS3, but since we've heard nothing about the former it seems really weird.

It does seem weird. AFAIK we haven't heard anything at all really about the BB DLC yet. Kind of expected it around November-ish, but with all the hype riding on DkS3 and no actual announcements, it's hard to tell.

Sounds like I need to grab Dark Souls 2 on a steam sale this holiday and play through that first.

I can't see it releasing before bloodborne dlc and we have heard nothing about that.
Saying that they could drop bloodborne dlc in november/december i guess...

That's ridiculously selfish reasoning.
What "reasoning" exactly do you think is in force?

I'd rather be able to jump into it right when it launches. Didn't say a word about denying other people their February release date.

Haven't they already said early next year? Bloodborne's original release date was in February so this doesn't seem that far fetched. I bet we'll get another trailer and the release date at TGS like Bloodborne.

Maybe we'll hear something at TGS. I'd be a bit surprised if Dark Souls 3 came out before it. Still really hoping for the DLC's release this year.

Fuck. I really hope not. Since Street Fighter V is supposed to come out in March that would only give me a month to enjoy it before switching over to something else.

I was hoping DS3 would release late 2016 so I would have something to pull me away from SFV for a bit.

DS2 and Bloodborne both came out in march and they already targeted that timeframe for this game so it seems likely.

Wouldn't be surprise, but I'm still expecting it will release on March just like Bloodborne and Dark souls2.


ok From it's time for the Alpha invites.

I'm not gonna get my hopes up.

As for Bloodborne I'm expecting it this year. It's DLC so it doesn't need as much time between announcement and release.

From is now a Souls factory.
I feel like we will get annual release now: DS2=>BB=>DS3=>BB2=>DS4.

As long as the quality is always high, I am fine with it.
