Hidetaka Miyazaki says that those Bloodborne references in Deracine blew up unexpectedly causing the players to think about Bloodborne 2. Deracine is a virtual reality title recently released by From Software. It included some Bloodborne easter eggs which attracted a lot more intention than anyone expected.
According to Hidetaka Miyazaki and Yasuhiro Kitao, this mention of the hit game was nothing more than a small tribute but instead, people took it as a hint for an upcoming game in the series which also resulted in being a problem for Sony.
With Déraciné, that was released recently for VR, we had an ode to Bloodborne in there – both titles are published by Sony. Actually, that reference, that nod itself caused a much greater stir than we expected. Way more than we expected. When we were given that idea like, “Why don’t you just put a little nod in there? It’d be great.” And we tried it and it blew up. So, we just want to tread a little bit more carefully around that front.
You know, it wasn’t so much that they read too much into it, it was just supposed to be a little homage, but people kind of expected Bloodborne 2 and it kind of got a little bit crazy. So, we feel like we caused a great inconvenience to Sony, and that was really not our intention.
We hope that Sony and FromSoftware take this massive interest of players in the game as a positive thing and decide to work on the sequel after releasing Sekiro Shadows Die Twice.
Without a doubt, Bloodborne can be considered as one of the best RPG games ever made and personally I believe that it’s time we see another installment in the series but sadly it’s not happening anytime soon. If Bloodborne 2 is in the works (one can wish) behind the closed doors then we can expect its release date to be sometime late in 2020 and once again to come exclusively on PlayStation 4.
If you are a big fan of the Dark Souls series then we advise you to play Sekiro Shadows Die Twice which is going to provide you with the same difficulty as it’s developed by the same creators of BB. Sekiro Shadows Die Twice releases on March 22, 2019, and it’s the first game by FromSoftware to support HDR.
