FromSoftware's award-winning PlayStation exclusive has been the subject of several leaks and much speculation over the years. There was even a point in time when a week would not go by without a Bloodborne-related rumor. Thankfully, these talks have mellowed in recent months, but even so, this doesn't mean that we still don't get the occasional piece of juicy news through the grapevine.
Case in point, Colin Moriarty's recent claim that Bluepoint Games is working on a Bloodborne remaster and sequel for the PS5. Neither Sony nor its newly acquired studio has confirmed this at the moment, but another credible insider has thrown his hat inside the proverbial ring.
Are all these Bloodborne rumors true?
It's one thing for two insiders to corroborate each other's information, such as what happened with Colin Moriarty and Millie A. It's another when a third joins in on the fun and claims that they've heard the same thing from their sources. This time around, it's Xbox Era's Nick Baker. Furthermore, the co-founder of Xbox Era has shared proof of his sources privately via u/Therabbidscot, who is a moderator over at the r/GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit.
With three reputable insiders all talking about the same thing from their sources, it feels like it's only a matter of time before Sony, FromSoftware, and/or Bluepoint Games address everything.
Of course, this is assuming that these companies don't lie or completely ignore the rumors.
After all, Bluepoint Games did deny Sony's acquisition after Sony Japan leaked it a few months before the official announcement. At the same time, it makes no sense for PlayStation to keep a rumor, remaster, and/or sequel a secret. This is especially after the studio confirmed that 2018's God of War is coming to the PC in early 2022. Interestingly enough, the recent GeForce Now leak did not mention Bloodborne at all.
Now, it's not unusual for Sony to release something completely out of nowhere, but Bloodborne isn't just anything - it's one of Sony's best-selling PS4 games.
Ultimately, the reality here is that all we can do is speculate. Bluepoint Games is reportedly working on its first original game in years after the Sony acquisition, so there's that. It's also worth mentioning that FromSoftware is busy with Elden Ring, which is set to hold a Closed Network Test in November. Even if Sony owns the Bloodborne IP, we doubt that it will just go ahead and make a remaster or port, let alone a sequel, without the help of the game's original creators.
With that said, these reports from three credible industry insiders could all end up being false, or maybe it's just that the said projects are still too early in their development cycle for any of the studios involved to talk about it.
