The Armored Core series, which saw its latest release in 2013 with Armored Core: Verdict Day for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, will continue, developer From Software’s Yasunori Ogura has confirmed. Though we will have to wait a little longer to find out exactly what is next for the franchise.

“Thank you for watching the Armored Core 20th anniversary music special program!” Ogura said in a tweet, referring to today’s Armored Core Suite 02 broadcast. “While I cannot discuss anything right now, we have no intention of ending the Armored Core series in its current state, so I would appreciate it if you can wait a little while longer.”

In a separate tweet, Ogura announced that an Armored Core 20th anniversary theme will be released for PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store in Japan on December 5. (Update 8:40 p.m.: It’s available now.)
