Last week, there were a number of leaks about Dark Souls 3, but now with IGN leaking a promotion image ahead of E3, the game is essentially confirmed.
The game has been rumored for a while, including a close source reporting that series creator Hidetaka Miyazaki would be returning to the helm. Miyazaki wasn't directly involved in Dark Souls 2's development, instead working on Bloodborne, instead the sequel was led by Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura.
What is the most interesting part is that Dark Souls 3 seems to be targeting an "early 2016" release, and that is quite early, considering From Software has already released the PS4 exclusive Bloodborne and the updated Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin in the first half of 2015.
Earlier rumors also seemed to suggest the game might not be hitting PC at all at its early-release, but instead have a later release window. This is something to be expected, after all Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 - were released on PC, but at a later date. Still, better late than never.
More details will be made available at E3 next week.
