Bloodborne director Hidetaka Miyazaki has commented on the sequel hints in VR game Déraciné and whether a new game will ever happened.
FromSoftwares Bloodborne isnt just the best PlayStation 4 exclusive, its one of the best video games ever made. And yet despite its acclaim theres never been any official hint at a sequel.
The game certainly didnt sell as well as fellow exclusives such as God Of War or Marvels Spider-Man, but thats unlikely to be the problem.
The real issue is more having director Hidetaka Miyazaki available to make the game, so that problem of Dark Souls II – which he was not directly involved in – does not happen again.
There was a recent ray of hope though, in Froms VR game Déraciné, which featured several references to Bloodborne – some of which could be construed as hints at a sequel.
Spanish website Xataka had the chance to ask the man himself whether they really were hints, or just Easter eggs, and it seems From themselves dont really know…
Actually, this is exactly the conversation that my team and I had, said Miyazaki. Its the kind of conversation we keep during development, because there are Easter eggs… However… The Easter egg in itself is not indicative that we are going to launch Bloodborne II.
Im not in a position to talk about a possible release of Bloodborne II. However, we love Bloodborne; thats why this Easter egg has aroused so much curiosity. But, I repeat, its not a Bloodborne II notice. Its just something that we explored among ourselves, because we love Bloodborne.
As you can see, hes being just as ambiguous as youd expect from the creator of Dark Souls but its certainly not a denial that itll ever happen.
But it certainly gives the impression that no work has started on a sequel, which is what youd expect given that Miyazakis current project is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice – which is not set to be released until next spring.
