Considering how popular Dungeon Fighter Online is, especially in Asia, it makes sense that IP will branch out to other genres. Neither a release date nor platforms have been revealed yet, but I’m sure the information will come up in the future.
This is not Arc System Works’ first rodeo with a third-party IP, which they also worked on Granblue Fantasy Versus. XSEED Games also unveiled its partnership with Arc System Works for “ARCREVO America Online 2020”, an online tournament featuring Granblue Fantasy: Versus and BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle. Started in October 2020, the two best players in Granblue Fantasy: Versus and BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle from each region were invited to participate in a special America VS Japan exhibition competition scheduled for spring 2021.
Producer Yuito Kimura and director Tetsuya Fukuhara talked about how they want to make more Granblue game. However, they stated that they can not work on too many projects at once and must first complete the PS4 action RPG Granblue Fantasy Relink. The game can get ports to other platforms such as Stadia, PC and PS5 even when the PS4 version is finished. Granblue Fantasy Versus is available on PS4 and PC.

Arc System Works has also worked hard to develop Obliged equipment -STRIVE-. Recently confirmed that the title will contain feedback net code after much request from the fans. Most recently during Japan Fighting Game Publisher’s Roundtable livestream fighters Leo Whitefang and Nagoriyuki were announced for the title. Two other trailers revealed Ramlethal Valentine, as well as Millia Rage and Zato = 1. So far we know that the previously announced characters are the main character Sol Badguy and Ky Kiske, Axl Low and May, and Chipp Zanuff and Potemkin.
