Sony introduced several new IPs this generation, among them being the best-selling and most popular is none other than FromSoftware’s Bloodborne.
Four years after release fans are still planning events for the game, making their own rules to keep the game fun and fresh. There is also a HUGE demand for a sequel to Bloodborne, so what is Sony waiting for?
In an interview with Gamespot Brazil, Hidetaka Miyazaki, the Godfather of FromSoftware and Director of many of the SoulsBorne games, admits that Bloodborne is his favorite game he’s ever made..and that a sequel to Bloodborne is up to Sony!
I consider Bloodborne to be an almost perfect game. Is there anything you’d change about it?
Thank you very much! I try not to think too much about which elements I’d improve after shipping a game. But I’d have improved on the Chalice Dungeons and the Blood Gems, that I wish were a bit more detailed, worked more thoroughly. I see the possibility of adding more to it.
Maybe in a Bloodborne 2?
(Laughs) Bloodborne 2… Unfortunately, it’s not up to me.
What were your inspirations when you first conceived Bloodborne?
I was inspired by Lovecraft’s book, The Call of Cthulhu. Anyone who played the game will likely know that I was heavily influenced by Lovecraft and this work.
Other sources of inspirations were horror, of course, and the film Brotherhood of the Wolf.
Of all the games you’ve worked on, which one is your favorite?
This is a very hard question, and, comparatively, it’s like you had three or four children and someone asked “which one is prettier?”. I’m gonna answer all of them (laughs).
But if I were to say which one stayed in my heart the most, it’s Bloodborne. It’s the one that marked me the most. I believe I did it my way, the way I wanted.
My question is this. WHY THE HELL HASN’T SONY MADE BLOODBORNE 2 A REALITY?!?? Do they not like making money?! We know Shuhei Yoshia and Miyazaki have a close relationship..so wait are they waiting for?!
Make it happen, PlayStation. Make. It. Happen.
