Bloodborne: A Remaster, Then A Sequel From Bluepoint Games?

Rumours about Bloodborne, now officially under Sony Interactive Entertainment, started almost immediately around Bluepoint Games.


On Twitter, Colin Moriarty (who was well-informed about Demon’s Souls getting a remake before the announcement) wrote that the studio is now heading to Yharnam. This is an apparent reference to the fact that Bluepoint has a Bloodborne project on the table. And on Discord, he wrote (see the attached picture) that they’re working on the PlayStation 5 remaster first, with a sequel to follow, but he’ll check with his source, who wasn’t wrong about Demon’s Souls; if he confirms it, he thinks we’ll be in a good position. (Especially since the same source was correct about how Insomniac Games is developing Marvel’s Wolverine.)

And in the meantime, we can officially talk about Bluepoint Games openly wanting to create “game of the year” quality games, and their job listings include positions for combat designers, senior lighting artists, and graphic engineers. “Bluepoint Games has begun the exciting work of original development and seeks passionate, industry-leading talent to join our pursuit in crafting Game-of-the-Year quality titles. Our studio is renowned for critically acclaimed titles that exceeded what the world expected of us, from the remaster of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection to the remake of Shadow of the Colossus, and most recently, the PlayStation 5 launch title Demon’s Souls,” their page reads. Original development? That would confirm Bloodborne’s sequel…

If all this is true, then Sony will not ask FromSoftware to make a sequel to Bloodborne (they made the original game, which is still only available on PlayStation 4). Since FromSoftware has agreed to a Demon’s Souls remake with Bluepoint Games and the now-defunct Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio, the Japanese studio may have enough faith in Bluepoint for a sequel.

However, what is certain is that if there is to be a Bloodborne 2, we should not expect it within two years because a high-quality AAA game takes a good three years to make, and development can usually take longer than that…
