Hidetaka Miyazaki is known for creating iconic games like the Dark Souls franchise and Elden Ring. Among all the games he has created, Elden Ring takes the throne for the most popular release so far.
Elden Ring captured audiences in 2022 and continues to be played over a year later. The lore, visuals, music, combat, and almost everything are well executed in the game, which is why it won the Game of the Year Award in 2022 at TGA.
The game has sold over 20 million copies worldwide, and the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion was also previously announced. Therefore, it is clear that Elden Ring creator, Hidetaka Miyazaki, has worked hard on this game.
Due to his past and current efforts, he has joined the top 100 most influential people of 2023.
Today the American news magazine Time announced the list of the top 100 most influential people of 2023 in the world, and Hidetaka Miyazaki was selected, which is an excellent achievement for the industry.
Moreover, he is only the second Japanese developer to be selected in the world’s top 100 most influential people. The other one is the famous developer at Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto, who was chosen in 2007.
Hidetaka Miyazaki has achieved this influence thanks to his continuous drive to innovate in the industry. This is largely why Elden Ring dominated 2022, as it offered fresh experiences for many gamers.
The developer is now looking up to multiplayer games. He wants to stay updated with modern technology to provide a new style of game. He said:
“I’m really interested in that as one of the fans and one of the creators. Especially speaking of Escape from Tarkov, for example.”
He did not go into the details of his next game, but it is clear that Miyazaki finds Escape from Tarkov compelling as a multiplayer game. He may be aiming to create a unique experience once again, this time focusing more on the multiplayer aspects.
Nonetheless, being a part of the top 100 list is just one of the many achievements the developer has achieved recently. Other than that, what do you think of Hidetaka Miyazaki being listed in the top 100 most influential people? Did you enjoy Elden Ring? Let’s discuss this in the comments below.
