A reminder Bloodborne Remastered still hasn’t been announced for PS5

FromSoftware /

This week, it was confirmed that Naughty Dog is releasing The Last of Us Part II Remastered for the PlayStation 5. Although the blockbuster sequel was only just released in 2020 and is playable on the PS5, we’ve never had a native PlayStation 5 version. That will change next year.

And what better time to remind everyone that after all these years, we still don’t have Bloodborne Remastered for PlayStation 5. The 2015 action role-playing game from FromSoftware received universal acclaim from critics, sold millions of copies and is widely considered to be a masterpiece. To this day, it remains one of the best Souls-like games.

It’s a hit in every sense of the word. But for some reason we still haven’t gotten a remaster.

Like The Last of Us II, Bloodborne is playable on PlayStation, but it’s without any visual upgrades or performance improvements. I actually tried to revisit the game recently on PS5 but at this point, it just feels dated. At the time, Bloodborne was an incredible experience. But since the release of games like Elden Ring and Lies of P, it just feels old.

It’s not bad, it’s just outdated. It needs a facelift. It needs a remake.

But rather than remaster a game that is now eight years old, Sony opted to remaster a game that is just three years old.

To be honest, Bloodborne was never the hit that The Last of Us was. It never got a sequel nor an HBO series. Sony probably feels that The Last of Us Part II Remastered has a better chance of selling more copies than Bloodborne Remastered, especially since Souls-like games can be a bit more niche.

But as someone who has been desperately craving to revisit the world of Yharnma, it’s incredibly disappointing that I can’t do so with the visual and performance upgrades of a remaster. Hopefully, we get one in 2024, but right now there are no signs pointing to it.
