Rumours and reports about a Bloodborne remake for PS5 have been swirling for the last few years, with some claiming that Demon’s Souls remake studio Bluepoint is currently working on it. However, reliable leaker and reporter Jason Schreier has now stated that a remake simply doesn’t exist and isn’t currently in the works at PlayStation.
When pressed for details about a Bloodborne remake on Twitter, Schreier simply responded, “can’t leak what doesn’t exist.” Sony hasn’t been transparent about its plans for the IP, leading many to believe that we won’t see anything related to Bloodborne in the future. Having a reporter with a good track record now shut down these rumours (including reliable insider Omnipotent) is probably the nail on the coffin for most concerned fans.
Bloodborne was developed by Elden Ring studio From Software and originally released in 2015 as a PS4 exclusive. The gothic action-RPG was praised for its world design, boss fights, visuals and combat that significantly improved upon Dark Souls. However, it was also criticised for being locked to 30fps, something that would certainly be remedied with a PS5 upgrade. Despite months of rumours and speculation, nothing has actually come of it.
Back in May, former IGN journalist Colin Moriarty claimed that we’ll be getting more Bloodborne-related news in the future. Of course, this directly contradicts Schreier’s recent comment, so who you choose to believe is entirely up to you.
In my personal opinion, I don’t think Sony would give Bloodborne a second look. The game sold around 2 million units, which would be considered a success under normal circumstances, but it simply paled in comparison to the big sales numbers brought in by other PlayStation exclusives like Ghost of Tsushima and Marvel’s Spider-Man. However, perhaps the huge success of Elden Ring might’ve changed Sony’s mind on Bloodborne lately, but we’ll only know for sure once we get some official confirmation.
Bloodborne is currently available for PS4.
