Multiple rumors are out that the much-acclaimed PS4 exclusive title Bloodborne is coming to PC and PlayStation 5.
The possibility of a Bloodborne remaster started making the rounds after CaseyExplosion, a streamer, offered a donation of $100 to a racial justice charity if any “Sony folks” come forward with information about the future of the franchise.
Apparently someone took the bait, and only 20 minutes later she tweeted again – this time claiming that the game is coming for PC. She even claims to knows who is porting it. And of course, she stayed true to her word and pledged a $100 to the National Bail Fund Network (kudos).
In later tweets, CaseyExplosion claims a Bloodborne PC version is genuinely happening, and that the tip came from a trusted source from inside Sony. According to her, the same source also confirmed that this alleged PC port was supposed to be exposed during the now postponed PS5 event.
Industry insider Nibel was also quick to jump on the bandwagon and say the Bloodborne remaster is coming to both PC and PlayStation 5 “soon.” According to them, Q Loc and Bluepoint Games are developing this new version. Q Loc is the studio behind Dark Souls Remastered, and Bluepoint games worked on the Shadow of the Colossus remaster.
The remaster will have “better textures and models, better loading times, and more QoL improvements.” It will also support 60 FPS, 4K, and ultra-wide displays.
As much as we want it to be true, the Bloodborne remaster rumors are just that – rumors. We’ll have to hang on tight and wait for an official word from From Software. We’ll probably get one on Thursday, June 11, during Sony’s PlayStation 5 event.
Released originally in March 2015 exclusively for PlayStation 4, Bloodborne is an action-RPG game brought to us by Fromsfotware, the people in charge of the Dark Souls games series.
Bloodborne takes a lot of inspiration from Horror literary works such as Bram Stoker’s Dracula, H. P. Lovecraft, and more. Game mechanics and level design are very much in line with the Souls series, or as the game’s director Hidetaka Miyazaki once said: “it carries the DNA of Demon’s Souls and its very specific level design.”Some of our posts include links to online retail stores.
