Another year, another missed opportunity for a proper Bloodborne PC port. While it’s great to get God of War on PC this month, as well as both Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy later this month, it somehow makes Bloodborne’s absence even more painful.
In 2020, rumors of a PC port flew around with such enthusiasm that it looked like it could actually happen, but as was the case with Elden Ring for years, FromSoftware’s community remains one of the most optimistic there is – perhaps ironic when one considers the character of the Soulsborne games.
Now we are in 2022 and no new rumors have emerged. The fact that we are getting more Sony PC ports gives hope for the future of Bloodborne on PC, but when could that happen? Here’s everything we know about Sony’s PC porting plans – and every single rumor we’ve heard of Bloodborne on PC.
You can play Bloodborne on PC … with Playstation Now
Although the new PC ports for Sony games look promising for Bloodborne, there are still no massive announcements regarding a remaster or a PC version. With that in mind, it’s worth remembering that you can play Bloodborne on PC even if you have to use the Playstation Now PC app.
For those who do not know, Playstation Now is Sony’s game streaming service, and Bloodborne is one of the titles available with it. In fact, Bloodborne is the most played Playstation Now title on PC. The only major downside is that the quality depends on how decent your internet is, and games can look pretty awful if your connection is on the slower side.
If you are planning to try it, I definitely recommend using a wired connection as it will make things as stable as possible.
PlayStation has let the PC ports come
In a February 2021 interview with GQ Magazine, Jim Ryan casually confirmed that Sony is bringing several of its first festival games to PC. “Especially from the last half of the PS4 cycle, our studios made some wonderful, amazing games,” Ryan said. “There is an opportunity to expose these amazing games to a wider audience and recognize the economics of game development, which is not always straightforward. The cost of making games increases with each cycle as the caliber of the IP has improved. Our ease of knowing making it accessible to non-console owners has grown. So it’s a pretty straightforward decision for us to make. “
Now we’ve seen more PlayStation game countries on PC. Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone have already been released. The God of War and Uncharted collection is ready for 2022. These are some of Sony’s biggest exclusives.
But what about Bloodborne?
So far, Sony has not said a word about Bloodborne – nor has it received a PS5 upgrade patch. A complicating factor is FromSoftware as a developer. From is busy making the Elden Ring, nor is it an in-house Sony studio like the developers of most of the first festival games. Is there a problem with a Bloodborne PC port? Hopefully not an insurmountable one.
Rumors of the Bloodborne PC continue throughout 2021
Do not make your hopes too high here. There have been some random claims that Bloodborne is PC-bound, but no leaked footage or screenshots to back up these claims. There is no public evidence that it exists and no leakers with excellent track records have given us confidence in the existence of the harbor.
A new rumor still pops up every few months, at this point. Recently, Xbox Era podcast host Nick Baker claimed that “I’ve been told that there’s a PC port already made, and I think what’s happening with Bluepoint is that Bluepoint is doing the sequel. And I think Bluepoint might as well make the remaster for the console. of the first. I think. “
Is that information reliable? As with all Bloodborne rumors, we can only say: ¯ _ (ツ) _ / ¯
The big rumor in 2020 was a Bloodborne remaster coming to PC and PS5
In June 2020, streamer Casey Explosion tweeted that a Bloodborne PC port from the port studio QLOC was to be announced at a PS5 event. The event was delayed and when it finally happened, Bloodborne was MIA. 2020 ended with no sign that the rumor was ever anything more than a rumor.
What did get announced was a PS5 remake of Demon’s Souls, another FromSoftware game. Was that what the rumors were really about all the time? It’s possible even though Demon’s Souls was developed by Bluepoint Games and a Dark Souls Youtuber said QLOC var does not working at a blood-borne port.
It seemed like it was a pretty damn thing to do, but CaseyExplosion was convinced that Bloodborne was still out there and on his way.
For those who just join me, yes Bloodborne * will * come to PC, I have got it confirmed by a very reliable source and I have great confidence in the company performing the gate you will not be disappointed. It really happens. pic.twitter.com/Gik2QA5J5qJune 4, 2020
Can it still happen? Of course. Were these rumors from 2020 based on genuine, accurate information? Maybe, but it certainly looks less likely as more time passes. So far, there have been no significant leaks or signs that a Bloodborne remaster is about to happen, just the whisper. Everyone wants Bloodborne on PC. So far, we just have to wait.
Although Bloodborne does not come to the PC, this PS1 style will demake
We still do not know if Bloodborne itself will ever launch on PC, but in the meantime, there is this really nice fan game to look forward to. The Bloodborne PS1 Demake recreates the first area of the game in Central Yharnam and includes the boss fight with Father Gascoigne. The pictures from the 90s fit really well with Bloodborne. You will be able to play this for free when it launches on January 31, 2022.
