Armored Core 6 to Launch on Much Bigger Scale Paved Way by Elden Ring’s Success

Elden Ring will definitely elevate this game.

Bandai Namco Entertainment recently said that Elden Ring’s success has paved the way for Armored Core 6 to launch on a “much bigger scale”.

The game company has recently spoken in an interview at Gamescom. Bandai Namco Europe CEO Arnaud Muller said that the publisher’s heightened ambition for the upcoming game, launching soon.

Muller said that the shift in expectations to a combination from FromSoftware’s increased popularity due to the success of Elden Ring. This is also due to the accumulated experience leading to “a new dimension” for Armored Core.

“This is an opportunity for us to truly widen the audience of the Armored Core games,” Muller said. “My ambitions are not on par with Elden Ring, but our ambitions are way bigger than the previous Armored Core games.”

“Thanks to Elden Ring, FromSoftware has become a seal, a guarantee of quality, and therefore people will see that the Metacritic of this game is great, [that] it’s challenging but very rewarding, [and say] ‘I wanna try that game’.”

Muller said that this is a big step up in the franchise of Armored Core. The company admits that it might not be able to match Elden Ring numbers, but it will surpass previous Armored Core games.

“We have a great game in our hands, the gameplay, the battle system is very loyal to what FromSoftware fans are used to, so we really want to take this IP further in the relationship with FromSoftware. My expectation is that people who have discovered [their] games via Elden Ring will enjoy Armored Core.”

Armored Core 6 is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
