Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is not going to get any DLC according to a new rumor. This news comes shortly after From Software announced their new IP Elden Ring at E3 2019.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was another brand new IP by From Software that launched in March of this year and it quickly became the fastest selling game by developer From Software. When the last sales update was given for Sekiro, it had sold more than two million copies.
At this E3, From Software has announced Elden Ring, a brand new IP that is being worked on by Hidetaka Miyazaki. It will be the largest From Software game to-date and they are also collaborating with George R.R. Martin to shape the mythology of this world.
From Software has confirmed that the official artwork for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will be out on August 2nd, which is a rather quick turnaround for a game developed by them. Normally, when they do release such artwork, it is after any post-launch DLC is out for the game. In the case of Sekiro, they are releasing it way too soon despite there being no DLC announced or released so far.
ResetERA user taepoppuri, who has been verified by an admin and seemed to have a genuine source, has shared that From Software is not going to make any more DLC for Sekiro because they are busy with Elden Ring, which is their biggest project so far. He was also the only person to leak the most accurate details on the Elden Ring E3 2019 trailer.
We have tagged this story as rumor even though the source is genuine and there is some degree of credibility to it due to the launch of the official artwork on August 2, but it still has to be taken with a bit of caution. From Software’s major focus should be on Elden Ring, no doubt, which they only started to work on after finishing any Dark Souls 3 DLC.
