PS5 Bloodborne remake: Rumours, delay, leaks and more

Bloodborne remaster will be coming to both PS5 and PC, according to new reports.

Last week’s postponed PS5 event would have been more than just a reveal of the hardware. It would also have included glimpses of some of the upcoming games. According to a new report Bloodborne may be getting remastered for the next gen Sony console. Sony may also bring the Bloodborne remake to the PC.

How Bloodborne started

Bloodborne is an action role-playing game from the studio behind Dark Souls and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. It was released on PS4 in 2015 and is one of the best selling PS4 exclusives of the generation.

“Hunt your nightmares. A lone traveller. A cursed town. A deadly mystery that swallows everything it touches,” reads the official description.

“Face your fears as you enter the decaying city of Yharnam, a forsaken place ravaged by a terrible, all-consuming illness. Scour its darkest shadows, fight for your life with blades and guns and discover secrets that will make your blood run cold – but just might save your skin …”

The release of the main game was followed by an expansion titled The Old Hunters. It’s likely the rumoured remake would contain both the original and expansion game.

Industry insider confirms Bloodborne remake

Industry insider Sloth Mom tweeted: “So, about that Bloodborne PC port. You would’ve been hearing about it today anyway, because as far as I understand it, it was due to be announced at the now-delayed PS5 event that was scheduled for today.”

Her tweet continued: “Now, I said earlier I’d share more info about it. So, what I can confirm is that it’s not just a PC port of Bloodborne, what was supposed to be revealed today was a Bloodborne Remastered/HD edition that was coming for PS5 and PC. I don’t know of any release date as of yet.”

New company on board

A brand new studio will handle Bloodborne remaster.

In a follow up tweet, Sloth Mom writes: “The last detail I’ll share is that FromSoft themselves are not doing the port, but the company doing the remaster is one that I have a huge amount of faith in judging by other games they’ve ported. I will not share who that company is, but you sincerely won’t be let down.”

Sony is also said to be working on a remake of Software’s PS3 hit Demon’s Souls which first appeared in 2009. The development of the new and improved Demon’s Souls will allegedly be handled by Shadow of the Colossus Remake studio Bluepoint Games.
