PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst in an interview with Reuters said Sony's investment in FromSoftware could lead to IP from the company being used in future PlayStation Production projects.

"You should think of collaborations on the game development side first and foremost, but it's also not unthinkable with our PlayStation Productions efforts that we explore opportunities," said Hulst on FromSoftweare.

PlayStation Productions was formed in 2019 with a goal to bring the company's existing gaming IP to film and television.

Elden Ring anime plz.
But it's probably going to take at least 5+ years to get a quality anime. Top anime studios can be booked for the next 7 years some times. The Cyberpunk anime began pre-production in 2017. Nier: Automata I don't know, but I imagine it was around the same time since it became a surprise hit the year it launched.
