Is A Bloodborne 2 Release Date In The Works? All You Should Know

Is A Bloodborne 2 Release Date In The Works? All You Should Know

Over the years FromSoftware has continued to put out genre-defying experiences repeatedly. In the early 2010s it was the Dark Souls series everybody was talking about, and today, it's the Elden Ring fever that has gamers in its grasp. Be that as it may, there's only one sequel that the fandom has its sights on, and that's Bloodborne 2. Out of all the titles that the critically acclaimed Japanese studio has made these past decades, Bloodborne has resonated with players the most and it's easy to see why.

The cult classic gothic horror game from 2015 put an eccentric spin on FromSoftware's Souls recipe. Its fast-paced combat in comparison to From's other titles, and the dark aesthetic set a unique tone that you don't often find in AAA games, so it's no wonder why fans want Bloodborne 2. If you're wondering whether the anticipated sequel is in development and when it comes out, then here's everything you should know.

Is FromSoftware Making Bloodborne 2?

No, Bloodborne 2 isn't officially in the works. FromSoftware hasn't made public whether a sequel is in development. The studio has got so much on its plate right now with the Armored Core VI launch coming up in August 2023, followed by the Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, so it's unlikely that you'll see a Bloodborne revival happening any time soon.

Armored Core VI and Elden Ring's DLC are FromSoftware's latest endeavors, and it'll be a while before they have their hands free again. What happens afterwards is a little tricky. FromSoftware'a director, the legendary Hidetaka Miyazaki, isn't a big fan of sequels. Following the release of Dark Souls 3, he stated in an interview that he'd rather make original worlds, and that's why for him, "Dark Souls III is the end". Now it's easy to see why FromSoftware made two brand new IPs as Sekiro and Elden Ring rather than developing Bloodborne 2 or continuing their already successful series.

We'll Likely Return To Yharnam Before Dark Souls

Dark Souls 4 seems to be out of the picture for now. Miyazaki does incline towards new IPs, however, I don't think that will always be the case. Sekiro, Elden Ring, and Bloodborne have all been hailed as masterpieces, and sooner or later, there should be a sequel to one of these if nothing else.

I'd personally say Bloodborne 2 is next since it's the franchise that has been dormant the longest. However, if it ends up being Sekiro 2 or Elden Ring 2, then I wouldn't be surprised as the demand for all three is crazy, but no harm in keeping your fingers crossed.

When's Bloodborne 2 Releasing?


Unfortunately, Bloodborne 2 does not have a release date. The game hasn't been announced yet, and given that FromSoftware is busy pursuing other projects, don't expect it to launch in the near future.

Despite the underwhelming news, that in no way indicates Bloodborne 2 will never happen. FromSoftware always has three to four games in the pipeline at all times. Even before the reveal of Sekiro, Armored Core VI, and Elden Ring, Miyazaki had mentioned that the studio had many games it was working on. And today while From's busy with the Elden Ring DLC and Armored Core VI, it's still safe to assume that they have at least another two full-scale games in production.


Whether they are original IPs, Bloodborne 2, or Sekiro 2 for that matter I can't say for sure, but judging from the studio's history, their next AAA game should be out by 2026. Expect an announcement entailing the reveal to happen by Fall 2024, so at the earliest, that's when you could hear about Bloodborne 2.

Bloodborne 2 Platforms

Bloodborne 2 is likely going to be a PS5 exclusive. There's virtually no way around it. Bloodborne was an exclusive for the PS4, so I can't imagine a sequel being made without PlayStation having exclusivity over it too.

Gamers worldwide are petitioning FromSoftware for a Bloodborne PC port or remaster, this has been the case for many, many years. There's a high chance that something like this will happen soon enough, and that's the closest I see Bloodborne playing on anything but a PlayStation.


Also keeping PlayStation's clever marketing strategies in mind, they might commission FromSoftware to release a Bloodborne port or remaster first, perhaps before 2025, and then announce that Bloodborne 2 is in the works exclusively for the PS5 to drive sales for their console. It’s the same strategy they did with God of War Ragnarök — call it paranoia if you will but it's worth considering.

On the flip side, you can never really know when Xbox or PlayStation make an acquisition, but whenever they do, the gaming industry changes heavily. FromSoftware may fall victim to a power play, and subsequently, all their games might be exclusives, albeit I doubt this coming true.
