Bloodborne is a magnificent game that stands in the upper echelons of what gaming has achieved. So maybe we should just leave it alone.
Off course it doesn't, but I still want one!
No...it needs one yesterday!!
That's like saying Resident Evil, TLOU or Uncharted doesn't need a sequel. Many times sequels fail because they are handled by a different director, design team, writer or funds. But if the original team wants to make a sequal, I'd say go full speed!
TLOU actually didn't need a sequel, though I'm still glad we're getting one. But the first game stood well on its own.
The first Uncharted was kinda meh.. So it really did need a sequel because it had a lot of unexplored potential.
Just because Bloodborne doesn't need another game, doesn't mean a new one shouldn't come out. The last one was a blast and seeing what could be improved on the sequel would be amazing.
Would love a new souls-like that plays similar to bloodborne with different themes like dark steampunk
Of Miyazaki doesn't want to do it then shouldn't happen. The dark souls sequels were not needed. They were games that just showed what would happen if they strayed off the path of rekindling the flame. These games have a never ending sequence and Bloodborne is the same. All the great ones and their secrets are all on the table. I really don't know what Bloodborne 2 would provide if my they make a new one. If people want Bloodborne 2 you won't really get anything new but the same ideas repeated.
But Sony doesn't seem to get the hint. It's basically Demon's Souls 2 all over again. Fans want it but the hint went over Sony's head. There is still a huge demand for Demon's Souls 2 and a remaster of Demon's Souls.
100% agreed, makes me wonder if the hold up is on Sony's end or From Soft's. Maybe both, either way, I feel like we'll never get a sequel to either one.
The whole plot twist in Bloodbourne near the middle of the game when you realise it's a lovecraftian cosmic horror is what trully makes this game a masterpiece. If they make a sequel in the same universe it won't have the same impact.
I think the problem is people don't care for the lore at all which is a shame cause it is so damn good. What the average casual wants is more enemies and bosses to mash R1 at. If you actually take the time to search for things related to the story you will always come to the conclusion that the game is finished and should be left alone.
Nah. It needs one.
I dont think the game will ever get a sequel. Making it a must own title. And a contender for inclusion into the games museum.
It needs a sequel because people want more and it sold millions for Sony. If the sequel sucks, who cares? You still have Bloodborne. It's not like suddenly the first game also sucks because there's a bad sequel.
Bloodborne is a masterpiece imo, I would be fine if a sequel doesn't take place in Yharnam. And I think a sequel for PS5 is very likely.
I actually agree with this and personally I didn't think Dark Souls 1 needed it either.
Take that back!
I understand the sentiment of the article but I will counter that with the notion that a 'good' sequel is always welcome. Yes, sometimes a sequel is poorly made or rushed and leaves fans salty. But a good sequel with a good story that fits neatly into the original will only serve to enhance the love for the series.
I'd prefer a demon's souls 2, best souls game imo , maiden astrea boss fight hit me harder than anything in bloodborne and dark souls combine, except for maybe artorias after knowing his lore.
I'm still trying to figure out how to get weapons and things in the game. :(
I agree after seeing Sekiro. The reason I liked Bloodborne was it took the slow combat of Demon's Souls and made it faster. Now Sekiro is basically taking Bloodborne's combat and making that faster as well. The next Souls like game they make should include faster/smoother combat like Sekiro has (or make that even better) instead of making sequels that have slower combat.
Agreed. It's a masterpiece. Let's just leave it at that.
Not arsed bout a sequel but I hope they drop a ps5 patch in time. Just to keep it fresh.
