As reported originally by IGN Japan, FromSoftware has started a new recruiting effort for "several new projects" at the studio. Details on these projects haven't been specified, but FromSoftware is essentially looking to hire for every possible role that could be available at the company. From programmers, to engineers, to artists, FromSoftware is staffing up in a big way which suggests that the studio is growing at a very rapid rate.
From Software begins massive recruiting spree for key roles in "several new projects."— Okami Games (@Okami13_) October 30, 2023
A special recruiting event has been announced and they're currently hiring for pretty much every role.

Generally speaking, it's not that shocking to see that FromSoftware would expand in this manner given its success in recent years. With Elden Ring, in particular, FromSoftware's open-world action title sold over 20 million copies in a single calendar year, making it the biggest release that the developer has ever seen. Hot off the heels of this achievement, it seemed likely that FromSoftware would end up growing quite a bit, which is now what we're seeing come to fruition.
Currently, FromSoftware hasn't announced what it will next be looking to release. Outside of Elden Ring's Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, which was unveiled earlier this year, FromSoftware hasn't shared with fans what its next game release might be. As we've seen from the studio previously, though, there typically isn't a huge gap between titles for FromSoftware, which means we could learn more about what the developer is up to quite soon.
