FromSoftware's Miyazaki Responds to Calls for Bloodborne Remake on PS5

While everyone has Elden Ring on the mind today with the

DLC, there's another FromSoftware title that has fans still hungry for love: Bloodborne. And today, the game's director finally acknowledged the overwhelming fan demand for a remake...though he stopped short of confirming or denying that one might ever materialize.


In IGN's own interview with Hidetaka Miyazaki about the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, we asked Miyazaki about the possibility of a Bloodborne remake. But he deflected: "Unfortunately, and I've said this in other interviews, it's not in my place to talk about Bloodborne specifically," he said. "We simply don't own the IP at FromSoftware. For me personally, it was a great project, and I have a lot of great memories for that game, but we're not at liberty to speak to it."

, acknowledging it made him "very happy" to see so many fans passionate about Bloodborne, and suggesting the game would benefit for a release on more modern hardware.


"I think having new hardware is definitely a part of what gives these remakes value," Miyazaki said. "Things you weren't able to achieve on previous generations of hardware, ways you weren't able to render specific expressions - [new hardware] sometimes makes it possible.

"However, I wouldn't say that's the be all and end all. I think purely from a user perspective, modern hardware also allows more players to appreciate all the games. And so, it ends up being a simple reason, but as a fellow player, I think that accessibility is important. I think that can be the driving force between bringing an old game to a new platform."

So that's it. No promises, no hints of anything in the works, and to hear Miyazaki tell it, the decision isn't even really up to FromSoftware - it's entirely on Sony, who owns Bloodborne. In stark contrast,

that publisher Bandai Namco switched the ownership of its trademark on Elden Ring fully to FromSoftware, meaning the developer now has full control over what to do with that license. It seems highly unlikely Sony would ever do the same for Bloodborne, however.

, but despite critical acclaim and incredible sales success, Bloodborne has remained relegated to PlayStation 4 exclusivity. There's no dedicated PS5 version, nor is it available on PS5 or other consoles. With other FromSoftware games such as Demon's Souls and the original Dark Souls getting a remake and numerous ports, respectively, hope has been kept alive. For now, FromSoftware fans will have to be content with the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, about which
