Bloodborne Remake Demand Acknowledged by From Software

Apart from Dino Crisis or Half-Life 3, there hasn’t been a greater demand for a game more than a remake or follow-up of Bloodborne. The acclaimed action-RPG remains locked to the PS4 with no way to play an upgraded version today. From Software president and director Hidetaka Miyazaki has now publicly acknowledged the high demand for a Bloodborne remake, though the decision to move ahead with one probably isn’t up to the studio.

Speaking to Eurogamer in a recent interview about Elden Ring‘s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion, Miyazaki was asked about a Bloodborne remake. “It is a title we hold very dear and just as much as our fans,” he replied. “It does make me very happy to see that there are still so many people passionate about it.”

Hidetaka Miyazaki added that he was delighted by the enthusiasm from fans asking for an upgraded Bloodborne, though he danced around mentioning anything specific:

“Put simply, it makes me very happy to see it’s a title with a lot of specific memories, both for me and the staff who worked on it. And when we see those passionate voices in the community, of course it makes us feel thrilled, it makes us feel very fortunate to have that and to have those memories.”

There have been endless rumours about Bloodborne receiving a remaster, remake, PC port or sequel to no avail. Some fans still believe that Demon’s Souls remake developer Bluepoint might be quietly working on a remake, though other reports suggest that the studio is actually working on a new IP instead.

Rumours have been widespread but this is the first time in a while that From Software has directly talked about Bloodborne. However, the IP is actually owned by Sony so the decision to move ahead with a remake or remaster would have to come from PlayStation, leaving it out of From Software’s control. Bafflingly, PlayStation has been updating a number of its exclusives for current-gen consoles and sidelining Bloodborne, further frustrating the community.
