FromSoftware website now listed as “Armored Core” in websearch


In an interesting twist, the official FromSoftware website is now listed as “Armored Core” in the most popular internet search engine, Google.

If one goes to Google and searches for the developer, their official site comes up naturally first, however its labeled as Armored Core.

While this could be an error and could be Google grabbing the first game from their titles in alphabetical order, that remains unclear.

The website has some of their biggest games/franchises listed in its top section, but not in alphabetical order, and more curiously, its source code has them listed differently as well:

  • Elden Ring
  • Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
  • Dark Souls series
  • Armored Core series
  • Bloodborne
  • Deracine

Perhaps I’m grasping at straws because I’ve always loved Armored Core and want it to return, but our recent report did confirm FromSoftware’s next game is nearly complete.

It’s also worth mentioning company boss Hidetaka Miyazaki’s next game has entered development. Back in 2016, Miyazaki outright confirmed they were developing a new Armored Core title.

Years later, the most we’ve gotten out of FromSoftware is that they have no plans to end the franchise, and a bit later Miyazaki confirmed that the game was still quietly in development.

A survey sent out to specific users earlier this year hinted at a new Armored Core game in all but name, claiming the new game is a “third person shooter mecha action title,” and that Miyazaki was at the helm of the project.

The most recent game in the Armored Core series was 2013’s Armored Core: Verdict Day. Nearly a decade later, most of the veteran staff that worked on the franchise moved on to develop the new mecha ARPG Daemon X Machina, which is now available for Switch.
