Could Elden Ring be an indirect sequel to Dark Souls 3?

"I doubt you could even imagine it. That which commanded the stars, giving life it's fullest brilliance. The Elden Ring, all Elden Ring, shattered by someone or something. Don't tell me you don't see it. Look up at the Sky! It burns..." This quotes The Elden Ring teaser trailer. We'll get back to the quote and it's possible significance. (Sauce) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lls6Gdua_XY *Just as a heads up this is pure speculation and shouldn't be considered a leak*

Okay, so bust out your tinfoil hats, here goes my fan theory... As with most of Miyazaki work, FROM SOFTWARE games are ether a direct sequel or loosely based in the same universe. Take the Moonlight Great Sward for example. It's appeared in Demon Souls, Dark Souls (I, II, & III) Bloodborne and even Sekiro. Though the name of this sward varies slightly between the games they're undeniably referencing the same weapon. I wouldn't be surprised of The Moonlight Great Sward is in the Elden Ring as well. This could be no more than developers leaving a signature on their games, but I think they're connected in another way.

VaatiVidya, a completely awesome lore YouTuber that focuses on games by FROM SOFTWARE, has a two part episode that discusses The Ringed City and the ending of the series (Sauce at the 14:10 mark) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5AYym15cig At the end of the video it's explained once Slave Knight Gael is defeated and blood of the Dark Soul is given to the Painting Women we get the dialog "My thanks, Ashen One, with this I will paint a world. Please tell me thy name. I would name this painting after thee" If you tell her that you have no name, she replies "I see. We are much alike. Then I will name this painting Ash. It will be a cold, dark, and very genital place. And one day it will make someone a goodly home." Each painting in this attic is a different world, their own universe. "I doubt you could even imagine it. That which commanded the stars, giving life it's fullest brilliance." I believe this refers to the Painting Woman creating the painted world of Ash. The perception of someone born within the painting the idea that their universe sits in a burning attic of a rotten wasteland would be unbelievable. "The Elden Ring, all Elden Ring, shattered by someone or something. Don't tell me you don't see it. Look up at the Sky! It burns..." Assuming the painted world of Ariandel is being cleansed by fire to end the rot and link the flame, the sky would certainly appear to be on fire from a paintings perspective...

This last image is a complete stretch, but I have to share it. What I see is 4 interlocked rings that bare a striking resemblance to the Dark Sign and maybe even the torso, arms and head of someone, maybe the Ashen One, Praising the Sun... What do you see?
