Every gamer who’s played this incredible game has many questions haunting them. What’s making them even more worried is because it’s been six years since the original game was released and fans of the game have been starving for new content.
Bloodborne is an action RPG developed by FromSoftware and published by Sony Computer Ent. launched in 2015. The game centres on the partaker’s character, i.e. Hunter, over the decrepit Gothic, heavily inspired from the Victorian period, particularly the city of Yharnam, whose citizens are plagued with a blood-borne illness. To uncover the truth behind the source of the illness, the partaker’s character unfolds the city’s enigmas while battling creatures and celestial beings.
Bloodborne was no doubt a massive success and it’s more than deserving to have a sequel. If a sequel to the original is launched, it is expected that Bloodborne 2 will be an action RPG just like the first game and presumably, it’s going be a much, much greater hit. Here we have compiled all the updates about the possible Bloodborne 2— release date, trailer and much more. Let’s get down with the deets.
Bloodborne 2 Release Date: When is it arriving?
Currently, there is no official release date although the part II of Bloodborne was expected to be developed back in 2019. Unfortunately, things couldn’t go according to plan as the pandemic got in the way and thus, the game had to be delayed.
According to reports, an announcement from the game developers was expected in 2021 but so far they haven’t, and we’re already nearing the end of the year. Could we expect an announcement sometime in 2022? We certainly hope so.
FromSoftware usually follows a year-long launch cycle and this applies to Dark Souls 2, Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 but the studio mainly singles out its big releases by a gap of 3 years at the most. If FromSoftware follows this schedule strictly and Bloodborne 2 occurs to be the next project to work on, the game’s air date will fall sometime in 2025 or maybe even before that.
Is Bloodborne 2 really happening?
Bloodborne is a much-anticipated sequel to the original RPG and it’s definitely happening. In a statement, Hidetaka Miyazaki, president of FromSoftware, the man himself dropped hints about its launch. Read the statement below:
“Okay, yes. Actually, this is exactly the conversation that my team and I had. It’s the kind of conversation we keep during development because there are Easter eggs … However … The Easter egg in itself is not indicative that we are going to launch Bloodborne 2. I’m not in a position to talk about a possible release of Bloodborne 2. However, we love Bloodborne; that’s why this easter egg has aroused so much curiosity. But, I repeat, it’s not a Bloodborne 2 notice. It’s just something that we explored among ourselves because we love Bloodborne.”
Also a leaker who happens to be popularly known for his leaks that often seems to be quite the credible information claims that the sequel is not even in the works.
“Never say never I guess, and it’s definitely far more likely than any sequel but with that being said. In my entire time as an ‘insider’ I’ve been privy to a lot of stuff that From software has worked on or been even somewhat related to in the past few years, Sekiro and Elden Ring being the big ones obviously, but also Demon’s Souls Remake, Dark Souls Remastered, Metal Wolf Chaos, Deracine, and stuff that hasn’t even been announced yet. While I don’t know every detail of everything, and some things I’ve known far more about than others, I’ve never come across anything being done with Bloodborne, even when actively seeking it out, multiple times, over a period of years. Sequel, Remaster, PC port, even a patch. Never have I heard a peep about anything, at least not from a concretely reliable place. So, do with that information what you will.”
Sony Interactive Entertainment wants to make a Bloodborne sequel, as per CEO Jim Ryan—Latest Updates!
At the time of this writing, neither the cast nor the makers have announced the Bloodborne 2 renewal.
Bloodborne is one of the most popular and renowned PlayStation 4 games. Known for its dark atmosphere, difficult gameplay, and unusual boss encounters, it has sold over 2 million copies worldwide.
Sony Interactive Entertainment wants to make a Bloodborne sequel. Jim Ryan, CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, told IGN that a sequel is “open to the possibility” and “something that we’re always thinking about.” Game Informer reported that Bloodborne director Hidetaka Miyazaki is “open to the possibility” of a sequel and has “some ideas” for it.
No Bloodborne sequel is confirmed yet; however, we shall update this space as and when any information is available. PlayStation 4 users can play Bloodborne’s original. They can also play Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, Dark Souls III, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
Will Bloodborne Be Remastered For The PS5?
According to rumors, the Bloodborne remaster will be developed by Bluepoint Games. Bluepoint Games is responsible for the PS5 remake of Demon’s Souls that came out right on time for the release of the PS5. But if Bluepoint Games is actually working on a remake, then it would make sense to also get a sequel, right? Well, Bloodborne is one of the most popular games of the PS4 era. Thus, it would almost be silly not to do a remake or a sequel.
What Will Be The Bloodborne 2 Story?
There are hundreds of reddit posts and theories on this. It would be interesting if it were set in a new city with a different kind of architecture.
Most of all, there probably would be a new setting: Japanese, Asian, whatever. The possibilities for the monsters would also be insane. Maybe the diluted blood would have a different effect on the psyche of the inhabitants? Would it give them a little more humanity? Considering it’s diluted and not pure like the strain of the church, the infection would have different aspects depending on the terrain. Let’s see what revelations the makers have to make.
