Demon’s Souls may have received a spiritual sequel, in the form of the fiendishly difficult Dark Souls, but this is not good enough for some of the original game’s fans.

Fans queried Atlus PR manager John Hardin, in the comments section of the official PlayStation blog, asking whether Demon’s Souls 2 was on the cards. Unfortunately for the fans, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.

“Can 100 percent confirm there will NOT be a Demon’s Souls 2. :(,” writes Hardin. Pressed for an explanation, Hardin responded, “That’s Sony’s call. From what I’ve heard around the Internet’s, Demon’s Souls is one big Gordian knot.”

So the game that started it all won’t be getting a ‘proper’ sequel. With Dark Souls II right around the corner, and early reports being highly positive, it’s hard to get too upset by the news though.

Dark Souls II is due to release in Europe in just over two weeks, on the 14th of March, for PC, Xbox 360, and the PS3. Check out the trailer below:
