I don't pay close attention to E3, but an announcement by From Software would interest me greatly. The timing seems right. I've seen various rumors but I won't give them space here.
I would love to see something completely unrelated, thematically, to both Dark Souls and Bloodborne. I've said before that the Souls "formula" as it were lends itself better to unique stories than to sequels. What would all the Souls dorks like to see next from Miyazaki and Co?

Yeah, what you said there. This is why I'm pretty excited to check out Nioh.
A lot of people in the industry are expecting Bloodborne 2 but I'd like to see something different. Like Dark Souls 3, I wouldn't be disappointed; and of course I'm on board for absolutely anything From Software does from here. But I still think it's too soon for Souls anything. It's barely been over a year since the three-year onslaught and I think another year would probably do them good to give people more of a rest.
And I figure why rush a sequel? People aren't going to lose interest at this point if you want another year. Dark Souls is now widely regarded as one of the best games ever made, so people will come no matter what. I tend to favour art that waits and watches what other artists are doing. I can only dream that they take inspiration from, say, Breath of the Wild.
I'm no longer part of this agency. You there, get my shoes!
I would be perfectly OK with no release anytime soon as well, but I do look forward to hearing about what Miyazaki has been working on. I've got plenty to keep me busy with P5, and Nier Automata in the queue. I also just picked up Nioh on sale so there's that too. Needless to say my PS4 gets a lot of attention these days.
Rule #2: Double-tap
I'm with you guys. While I'd love to see Bloodborne 2 or Demon's Souls 2, I'd prefer Miyazaki to start something new. It's important to bear in mind that From Software is a big-ish company, so "From's next game" isn't necessarily "Miyazaki's next game," but with Ringed City out and the DkS3 patching at a point where it can readily be handed off to underlings, it's fair to assume that Miyazaki is working on something. Might be too early for them to announce anything about it, though, since games in high concept tend to stay that way for quite a while. Offhand I'd say the next announcement from From will be about Armored Core MMCCCXLVIII.
As for Nioh, I'm curious about that too, but my dislike of Team Ninja is too great for me to be truly interested. If you try it out, xtal, report back! I will live vicariously through you.
Oh, who am I kidding. I do that already.
Life is the misery we endure between disappointments.
