The rumor mill keeps churning out Bloodborne stories, but I am sure Sony will be keeping an eye on the sales of that Demon's Souls remake for a while. The titles have cult followings but it seems in recent years that Sony's preferring to invest in publishing blockbuster titles.

If it's on PS5... I'll bite if it's only a PC version announcement I'll bite.


Still have yet to finish this game. I started it at 30 fps like 10-15 mins in but I'm waiting for that 60 fps upgrade to continue.

You might recall a few months ago that Sony's Japan Studio had a reorganization. It was directly noted that Bloodborne staff as well as the Demon Souls PS5 creative director left PlayStation's Japan Studio before the studio was dissolved with some of the remains absorbed into Team ASOBI. Enthusiasts keeping track of studio talent had been noting dozens leaving the studio leading up to this point.

So while I'm always tempted to get excited over Bloodborne rumors, I also have to recognize that Sony's place in this business is as a large publisher.

There's a reason you see Uncharted 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and God of War 1, 2, 3, 4. Then you get Demon's Souls, Bloodborne.

The Demon's Souls Remake was nice, but these kinds of games don't light up the sales charts. If you're Sony, and comparing sales of Bloodborne to sales of The Last of Us 2, which kind of games do you decide to greenlight?

Multi-million sales is lighting up the sales charts though surely more than other companies first party games(save Nintendo)
