I am absolutely sure this game was hinted at VGA.

Shadows die twice hey? Not sure if that is a whole new ip with that very name, a bloodborne 2 teaser or a new tenchu teaser.

Shadows die twice could easily be a bloodborne 2 teaser, "twice" Implying a sequel (2) in addition the teaser itself had a lot of blood on that device, the biggest theme in bloodborne and looked somewhat like a weapon/device that fits the setting/time period of bloodborne... Eh but who knows

"I am absolutely sure this game was hinted at VGA."

Not familiar with Tenchu series, are you?

Unfortunely, a Bloodborne sequel is pretty much unlikely in near future. Miyazaki is working on From Software´s new IPs, and Japan Studios did a poor job supporting Bloodborne. To this day they did not delivered a PS4 Pro enhanced patch and stop support this game in less than an year.

I’d also like another LittleBigPlanet game from Sony

“It’s as though the game didn’t do well, either”

The sentence doesn’t make grammatical sense. I think the author meant to say “It isn’t as though the game didn’t sell well,” especially since the author admits the game did sell well.

“its sales were well over 2 million units worldwide, which is a great result by any standard, and also squarely puts it over the sales of games like inFamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Ratchet and Clank, and LittleBigPlanet 3.”

Also, according to these estimates

http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...

Killzone: Shadow Fall and inFamous: Second Son sold more than Bloodborne.

Sciurus_vulgaris226d ago

Vgchartz is known for being inaccurate..... Bloodborne doesn’t really need a sequel. The game ended in away that brought closure to the hunter’s story. I personally would like another Bloodborne, but the original developer has stated they’re moving away from souls-type games.

CP_Company226d ago

stated that moving from Dark Souls games.

there is plenty of story to be told in Bloodborne. the Bloodborne 2 does not have to be a sequel.

Silly gameAr226d ago

Miyazaki said that he was finished with Dark Souls, never mentioned Bloodborne. Even if From didn't return to Bloodbourne 2, it was co-developed by Sony's Japan Studio, and from what I heard, they're the ones that came up with the concept of Bloodborne, but wanted to collab with From on the game.

So, I'm pretty sure even if From didn't return, a sequel could still come. I think all great games deserve a sequel, if there's an idea and demand for one, and Bloodborne is one of those games.

thatguyhayat226d ago

Well technically he said he had 2 playstation exclusive in the makes. A sequel to a game and brand new IP. Either bloodborne or demon souls

michellelynn0976225d ago

It is not just VG Chartz reporting these numbers.

VGChartz estimates are absolute garbage. They undertrack most PS4 exclusives.

https://www.gamespot.com/ar...

Sony themselves confirmed by TGS in 2015 which is in September they sold 2 million copies. That's 2 million copies in 6 months. Unless you seriously believe that its sales dropped off a cliff and it ONLY did 950,000 since that sales milestone. Bloodborne continued to sell hot right through Christmas that year. Pretty sure it has sold much more than the 3 million VGchartz think it has.

Seraphim225d ago

even 3 million is a sizable number. Some games sell 500k or are lucky to hit 1 million. But there's no doubting that Bloodborne sold incredibly well and some can argue it wasn't a great game but it was.

Michiel1989225d ago

they dont count digital sales u dummy. Now we will all believe your underinformed opinion........

S2Killinit225d ago

its a fact that they undertrack them though.

PhoenixUp225d ago

@ Sci & Chev

VGC doesn’t account for digital sales

michellelynn0976225d ago

Bingo. Bloodborne probably sold over 2.5 to 3 million. Still very good.

Chevalier224d ago

That's true, but, my point is it was one of the top selling games that year and did 2 million in a short amount of time. My store still regularly stocks Bloodborne and at $19.99 we still sell copies regularly. Its been almost 3 years since it released. My store still stocks Bloodborne 3 years later whereas say Gears of War 4 we don't stock regularly any more and that came out only a year and a half ago.

PhoenixUp224d ago

The link didn’t say that Bloodborne didn’t sell well, it only showed that Killzone: Shadow Fall and inFamous: Second Son sold more. It’s commendable since all titles sold over 3 million

Gardenia225d ago

From Software is working on different games so one of them could be Bloodborne

SirBillyBones226d ago

Not every great game needs a sequel.

ziggurcat226d ago

No, but it would be nice to have a sequel to Bloodborne.
