Yeah, and while we're hoping.. I hope it won't be exclusive. I want to play it on PC with smooth framerates and better visuals. From Software is an independent third party developer and they have fans on all platforms, so none of their games should be artificially restricted to only one platform.

Elda49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

It's evident Sony payed FS to develop the Bloodborne i.p. which is owned by Sony so Bloodborne 2 would be solely a PlayStation console exclusive. FS can develop any exclusive for whatever platform it chooses.

Babadook749d ago (Edited 49d ago )

You don’t need it on pc. This is a Sony funded game just like the genre itself, and is very stable on pro. Just toss out the sour grapes and your good mate.

Rambokind49d ago

Waa, it's not awaiable on my Pwee Cee. Daddy!!

SpineSaw49d ago

Ohhh don't you worry, don't you worry about a thing..... It won't be a PlayStation exclusive. So when it releases on the PS4 or PS5 or both. 2 to 3 yrs later it'll then release on the PS Now service just like the original BloodBorne and you can play it anywhere on your PC that should make all happy. And you are 100% correct From Software is a independent 3rd party game developer and a good one. But, and most important From Software is not the owner of the BloodBorne IP that would be Sony. So I'm guessing there will be another BloodBorne and we'll see you on the hunt in 5 to 7 years or you can play it on a PlayStation console in 2 to 3yrs. Either way ...good hunting!

Legatus49d ago

Sony owns the Bloodborne IP, so it doesn't matter if FromSoftware is independent, the sequel will be a Playstation exclusive.

goldwyncq49d ago

Funny how people care so much about exclusivity. If FromSoft ever makes an Xbox exclusive, I bet these guys would be crying for a multiplatform release too.

Last_Boss49d ago

@gold

They did. It was a really cool game on the 360 called Ninja Blade.

JesusBuiltmyHotrod49d ago

Sony owns the IP...they make the game and invest in it, it is their right .

oasdada49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Its co deleloped with sony japan studios.. Just like demon souls was which is still the best souls game out there

BlaqMagiq149d ago

There's absolutely zero chance that an IP OWNED by Sony will be released on PC. You should know this.

NarutoFox49d ago

Can't wait for Sony to announce Bloodborne 2 at PSX 2019

Iloveherliezz49d ago

Just because you pay a studio to put a new I.p. on your console doesn't mean you own it. If you publish it which Sony did thats cool they wanted it exclusively on ps4. An example is Gears of War Microsoft published the game but didn't buy the rights to the franchise until 2014. Which means they payed to have it made and published it for their console but it wasnt their I.P. until they bought it.

Now I don't really know if Sony bought the I.P. from Fromsoftware all I kbow is they wanted it exclusively on ps4 and published it.

ziggurcat49d ago

@starchild: Sony owns the IP, so you can hope all you want, it won’t be coming to other platforms.

whothedog49d ago

I love that game, was a system seller for me for a long time, I'm sure there were occasional dips but there was nothing that made me angry with FPS. And From Software is a great dev but a 10 second google search would tell you that Sony owns the Bloodborne IP. Love the lore as well, Bloodborne was such a great game, I pop it in occasionally still since I didn't beat all the bosses and get made fun of for that :<

Realms49d ago

You do understand that independent companies are commissioned to work on projects where they don't own the intellectual property right? If you want to be mad be mad at Fromsoft for accepting a contract with Sony for said work the fact is Sony owns Bloodborne. So either get a playstation console or stop bitching you don't see console gamers demanding every game on PC be on consoles.

"Just because you pay a studio to put a new I.p. on your console doesn't mean you own it. If you publish it which Sony did thats cool they wanted it exclusively on ps4."

the thing is, Bloodborne is nothing like Gears in terms of development. Gears last gen was developed by Epic and Epic alone and MS was only publishing it as an exclusive but they never owned the IP. they had to interfere and buy the IP because Epic decided not to continue with it. MS knew they need Gears more than Gears need them, so they bought it and prevent it from going multi.

Bloodborne was CO-DEVELOPED by From Soft and Sony Japan just like Demon's Souls was. Sony OWN the IP. so yeah, it's gonna be a PS exclusive and will only ever appear on other platforms on PS Now several years after its release. So, even if From Soft decided not to continue with the series, and only focus on Dark Souls and Sekiro from now on, Sony can still make Bloodborne 2 WITHOUT From Soft.

Iloveherliezz49d ago

Link to me anything where it blatantly says Sony owns the I.P. I mean I don't know the dealings but I do know how this sorta thing works most of the time.

Imalwaysright49d ago

starchild

The people that disagreed must have forgotten about Dark Souls. FromSoftware could develop a game that everyone knows is a Bloodborne's sequel, call it something like Plasmaborne and release it on all platforms including PC and all its 60+++ FPS glory.

everytime they mention Demon's Souls & Bloodborne, there is a bracket for "SIE Inc." because Sony owns those IP. look at the website and that's the only game with a bracket for Sony.

Edito49d ago

Can only laugh at you... they have fans an all platforms and all platforms are at sale for those who want's to buy them so do yourself a favor and just buy it...

UltraNova49d ago

You know what starchild, I was hoping I could play more games by Ninja Theory especially after playing their excellent Hellblade last year but they sold to MS. Do I hate them for it? No its their choice albeit a bit ironic since they said on multiple occasions that their most valuable asset was their Independence but I digress, still its their right to go MS exclusive denying me a potential Hellblade sequel. This is just business, nothing personal.

UCForce49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

You do know that Bloodborne is owned by Sony, right ?

UCForce49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

@imalwaysright I don’t think so. People disagree with him because he doesn’t know this game is funded by Sony and own by them. Of course, you are going twist everyone word and called them everyone are “delusional”. Like you bragging about Death Stranding is “not” PS4 Exclusive which is used Sony First Party Engine, GG help and Sony support. Do you have anything to say or you are going to insult me just like everyone else ?

zahdab49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

U ll need more tban hoping ... u would need to buy sony

Imalwaysright49d ago

@ UCForce

The only person around here that I'm gonna call delusional is you because you're seeing things that I did not write and I'll add, you understood nothing of what I said so let me try again to see if it sinks in. Like Bloodborne, Demon's Souls is a Sony owned IP and Dark Souls which is undoubtedly Demon's Souls successor isn't and is available on all platforms. This is a well known fact, right? Now what FromSoftware did with Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, they can easily do with the Bloodborne IP. They could develop a game that everyone knows is a Bloodborne successor, give it a different name and release it on all platforms. Did you understand now? If not, I'm not going to waste any more of my time with you and your delusions.

Born2Game8349d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Its a video game. A leisure item. Not something you need to live. They can make all the exclusives you want. Don't like it? buy the system the game is on, play something else or get a better job.

Dreamcatcher4549d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Then click on the "owned franchises and properties" section.

Gahl1k49d ago

Look, starchild, even if Bloodborne 2 could be released on PC, Sony won't allow it since Bloodborne was the best PS4 Seller Sony ever had (until Spider-Man came along). And without Sony's investment, we wouldn't have had Bloodborne, in the first place.

2 people are hopeless, possibly more.

gangsta_red49d ago

4 so far are keeping hope alive!

Obscure_Observer49d ago

Myazaki already said he will not work on Sony IPs like Bloodborne, Demon Souls!

That said, what´s wrong with Japan Studio? Why do they don´t try and develop a Bloodborne 2 or Demon Souls 2 game themselves?

Why they need to count on third party developers to do their work? Those are Sony IPs fcs!

Why fans have to wait for Myazaki to "bless us" with those sequels?

Imalwaysright49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Souls games and Bloodborne aren't Japan's studios games concept or design wise. They are very much Miyazaki and FromSoftware babies and Japan studios most likely helped FromSoftware only on a technical level especially on the PS3 that was a nightmare for developers in its initial years. If it wasn't this way we would have gotten a Demon's Souls sequel a long time ago developed by Japan Studios.

Obscure_Observer49d ago

@Imalwaysright

"Souls games and Bloodborne aren't Japan's studios games concept or design wise."

I know, and i agreed with everything you said. Thing is, Myazaki got promoted and now he´s President of From Software. He´s done with games development. To have him onboard to make another exclusive game to Sony is nearly impossible from a business standpoint.

Once Bungie left, Microsoft tasked 343i with Halo. Did the same thing with Gears (The Koalition), Killer Instinc (Iron Galaxi) and now Battletoads (Dlala Studios).

Sony should just do the same and move on. They have talent studios to do the job. Just saying.

UltraNova49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Obscure,

Soulsborne games are not your regular shooter games though. They are complex and uniquely designed RPGs, these games are literally high spec gaming art. What I m trying to say is that Japan Studio cannot make them on their own they need the help of the original From team or at least part of it. Even then we should not expect the same quality if it ever happens.

To be clear - I'm not discounting nor questioning post - Bungie and post-Epic Halo and Gears respectively, quality as games but the truth is in terms of complexity and atmosphere Soulsborne games are some of the hardest to make and most crucially hardest to "get right" in gaming due to their unique style/design.

Obscure_Observer49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

@UltraNova

"Soulsborne games are not your regular shooter games though. They are complex and uniquely designed RPGs, these games are literally high spec gaming art."

Are you really trying to tell me that Bloodborne or Demon Souls are more hard/complex to develop than games like Halo or Gears?

Please, check your facts. Miyazaki was not involved in the development of dark souls II game and still, From Software did it anyway! Whitout him! With a SECOND team!

Japan Studio was direct involved in both Bloodborne and Demon Soul projects from the start! There´s not excuse for them to not try and deliver the sequels that Soulsborne fans want after all these years!

It´s been almost TEN years since Demon Souls got released on the PS3 and you are here trying to tell me that Japan Studio hasn´t had enough time to get it right due... complexities? Really?

UltraNova49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

Obscure,

I dont see the point arguing with you on this matter, its pointless since we know nothing, but what the hell, I'll do for the kicks but just this once.

"Are you really trying to tell me that Bloodborne or Demon Souls are more hard/complex to develop than games like Halo or Gears? "

Ahm.. YES! Far far far more complex and harder to make to be completely clear.

"Please, check your facts. Miyazaki was not involved in the development of dark souls II game and still, From Software did it anyway! Whitout him! With a SECOND team!"

I have never mentioned Miyazaki. In fact I specifically mentioned "From or part of them" in my OG comment. Bonus: The guy didn't make any games by himself, From soft as a whole did.

"Japan Studio was direct involved in both Bloodborne and Demon Soul projects from the start! There´s not excuse for them to not try and deliver the sequels that Soulsborne fans want after all these years! "

If by directly involved you mean on a purely technical level as in providing their insider know how of the ps3 and ps4 coding architecture then yes. Japan Studio to the best of my knowledge did not have a say on game play, level, story/lore and other mechanics design. - From did. Please provide proof on the contrary (fact checking...rings a bell?)

"It´s been almost TEN years since Demon Souls got released on the PS3 and you are here trying to tell me that Japan Studio hasn´t had enough time to get it right due... complexities? Really?"

I'm not in charge of Sony's game development roadmap nor I'm privy to their deal with From Software on Demon Souls and Bloodborne to answer this question. My personal opinion would be Sony knows Japan Studio is not up to the task of developing either DS or BB by themselves and yes they are waiting on From to schedule in either game's development. Frankly, we dont even know if any of those games are already into development and by who.

See there's no one to blame here. Just be patient like we true PlayStation fans are.

BloodBorne II is happening down the line.. It would be crazy to think otherwise. I want to see more of the ‘Great Ones’.

frostypants49d ago (Edited 49d ago )

I want to see them take chalice dungeons further. Great concept with a lot of potential for extending the life of the game. They were fun in BB1, just a little repetitive in layout.

jerethdagryphon49d ago

Double triple the tile set Nd stuff more chalices they were awesome

We still waiting for Demon Souls 2, so don´t get your hopes up for Bloodborne 2!

UCForce49d ago

Let’s FromSoftware decide, not yours.

@UCForce

"Let’s FromSoftware decide, not yours."

From Software? Bloodborne is Sony IP! It´s up to Sony to decide whether they want a sequel or not! Stop talking nonsense!

Movefasta199349d ago

if there is a bloodborne 2 I hope it's a ps5 game not a ps4 game, imagine with all that horsepower omg, I can wait while I play the hell out of sekiro until then ps5+B2

Movefasta199349d ago

and nioh 2 , shiii the souls genre is staying strong as hell, bloodborne can wait a little longer, but only a little

Movefasta199349d ago

code vein looks too arcade for me, there seems to be no weight behind the attacks, i'll keep an eye on it tho
