New SoulCalibur Could be Coming
With all of the most recent fighting game releases, it would only be fitting to have a new SoulCalibur game somewhere along the way too. Surprisingly, this might actually happen. The development wing at Bandai Namco responsible for the SoulCalibur series has just posted something on their social media pages, suggesting that a new SoulCalibur game could be coming.
On their Facebook page, the SoulCalibur developers posted a poll that asked fans about their favorite characters in the game franchise. Fans were only allowed one vote and the post stated that it would be used to help "Determine precisely who are the favorite characters of the community." The post then went on to say, "Project Soul is probably preparing something huge... Stay tuned and spread the news!"
Whilst this doesn't directly confirm that a new SoulCalibur game is in the works, they did mention that this had nothing to do SoulCalibur Lost Swords but was designed for the SoulCalibur brand in general. Lost Swords was a free to play game set in the SoulCalibur universe that was released last year. As you can imagine, a lot of fans were a little upset about this release, and everybody is impatiently waiting for the next big real game.
We're all hoping for a SoulCalibur 6 and it could definitely be coming. We may get something else instead, but something new from the Soul team is on it's way. Let's hope Bandai Namco reveals something soon.
