Sekiro 2 at The Game Awards surely doesn’t make sense, but the samurai Elden Ring DLC ​​would be an ace

Earlier this week, rumors of a Sekiro 2 announcement at The Game Awards hit the internet. The font was dim at best (4 channels no credible backing), but it got people talking. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was a hit for FromSoftware, the samurai-inspired action RPG that garnered multiple Game of the Year awards, most notably at The Game Awards 2019, so, one has to assume, fans of the original they would welcome a sequel with open arms.

I certainly would. But it seems so unlikely at this stage. Since then, Elden Ring has elevated both the action RPG genre and FromSoftware as a studio since its arrival in February, which, if the latter were to show up at The Game Awards, would surely do so with something hidden in the form of Elden. Ring. under his arm. Further building on the meteoric and enduring success of the Tarnished stories in Lands Between seems inevitable, and I see no point in developers offsetting or diluting the current tidal wave of hype with a sequel to a game thought to be unique. If FromSoftware is at The Game Awards next week, then Elden Ring DLC it feels like a given. My question is: why can’t we have the best of both worlds?
