Not long after From Software was acquired by Kadokawa, there's more change happening at the Japanese developer. Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki is now the president of the company, according to news translated by Gamasutra.
Miyazaki stepped away as the director from Dark Souls II, though he did oversee the game's development. He was tasked with coming up with a new game, largely believed to be the leaked/rumored/probably true Project Beast.
Dark Souls went under the name Project Dark while it was in development.
