Miyazaki provides update on the possibility of Bloodborne 2

Bloodborne and Souls series boss, Hidetaka Miyazaki talked about the possibility of a Bloodborne 2 sometime down the line in a recent interview.

Bloodborne is considered by many to be one of the finest games of the generation, with over 11 million players having played the game on the PS4. Bloodborne 2 was rumored to be From Software’s latest project before they revealed Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, so the demand for a sequel is still at an all time high.

In an interview with Spanish site Xataka (via), Miyazaki was asked if the From Software team was considering a sequel to the PS4 exclusive. For a bit of context, there were a few Easter Eggs in From Software’s Deracine for the PS VR, which have further led to rumors of Bloodborne 2 to be in the works.

Last question, coming from a fan, and you can answer with a yes or no. It goes with spoilers. In ‘Deraciné’, Yuliya, the sick girl, has some toys that are clearly related to ‘Bloodborne’. The names of his friends, Laurent, German, also have a lot to do with ‘Bloodborne’. The books they read, as well. Is ‘Bloodborne’ the fevered delirium of a dying girl? Is the dream of the hunter his dream?

[Kitao and Miyazaki look at each other. They start laughing. They speak briefly. Then, answer.]

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 II’. I’m not in a position to talk about a possible release of ‘Bloodborne II’. However, we love ‘Bloodborne’; that’s why this easter egg has aroused so much curiosity. But, I repeat, it’s not a ‘Bloodborne II’ notice. It’s just something that we explored among ourselves, because we love ‘Bloodborne’.

Well that’s disappointing, but I’m sure Sony will commission From Software for another entry in the Playstation exclusive sub-series, maybe for the PS5? Sekiro releases in March of 2019, which gives From Software ample time to develop a new entry in the series in time for the next generation consoles which are expected to release in 2020.

What do you think of the game? Would you like a sequel? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
