Insider claims seeing a working Bloodborne PC port

According to the source, Sony doesn't need FromSoftware if it wants to release Bloodborne on the PC or the PS5.


"Sony can do it at any time they like without FROM's support."

If we were to guess, Sony is just waiting on Hidetaka Miyazaki.

This is what Lance McDonald said when he refuted Jeff Grubb's earlier claims that Sony will need FromSoftware to work on anything related to Bloodborne.

With two million units sold, Bloodborne was one of the best-selling games on the PlayStation 4. However, unlike other best-selling PS4 titles, Sony hasn't updated Bloodborne. Many are asking for a chance to play Bloodborne at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on the PlayStation 5 and/or the PC. Unfortunately, it appears that Sony has no plans to listen to fan feedback.

Having said that, we're curious to find out more about what McDonald just said.

Many still consider Bloodborne the best FromSoftware game despite the success of Elden Ring.

Grubb recently explained that FromSoftware is currently too busy to work on anything that isn't Elden Ring. Because of this, neither FromSoftware nor Sony will touch Bloodborne at all. But, if we believe McDonald, the lack of Bloodborne updates, whether it's a PS5 version or a PC port, doesn't have anything to do with FromSoftware's unavailability.

McDonald elaborated that it will only take changing two lines of code for Bloodborne to support 60 frames per second. At the moment, Bloodborne is the only FromSoftware game still stuck to 30 frames per second.

It's a travesty knowing that Sony can just update Bloodborne with minimal effort to at least make it more playable on the PS4 Pro and the PS5. It's curious why Sony refuses to do this. If we were to guess, it has something to do with the president of FromSoftware, Hidetaka Miyazaki.

Bloodborne is Miyazaki's favorite game. The two long-time partners might have an internal agreement to give Miyazaki free reigns on what he'd like to do with Bloodborne. Considering that FromSoftware, and, by extension, Miyazaki, is busy with Elden Ring, Sony might just be waiting for the right time. Otherwise, it just doesn't make sense for Sony not to pawn off the project to one of its first-party studios like Bluepoint Games.

A Bloodborne sequel likely won't be available until the next decade.

For what it's worth, Elden Ring should scratch that Bloodborne itch if you have a PS5 or a PC. It's not quite like the PlayStation-exclusive title, but the two aren't far off. It's arguably a better game after already winning one GOTY award.
