Looks like we’ll be waiting a little longer.
A PC port of Bloodborne is something gamers have been clamoring for since the game originally launched in 2015. While we still don’t know anything official, a recent update provided by a trusted insider might just give us a slight glimmer of hope, or at least explain why it hasn’t happened yet happened.
GamesBeat reporter and insider Jeff Grubb recently appeared on Xbox Expansion Pass podcast and talked about various topics, including Bloodborne. Speaking about a possible PC port, he said: “I think the answer to that is that there’s nothing going on with Bloodborne right now. And I think the reason for that is still that FromSoftware is very busy with Elden Ring”.
He continued, saying that a port couldn’t be made without the involvement of the original developer: “FromSoftware made that game in such a way that you can’t just hire a team to go in there and do the work for them. You’d have to work together with FromSoftware”. Given that a port would require a lot of hand-holding, Grubb believes that FromSoftware simply doesn’t have the time for it right now. While this is far from confirming a PC version of Bloodborne, it does hint at why it hasn’t happened yet. happened.
Grubb also suggested that Sony might hire another development team to help work on a possible PC port as well. This is possible now more than ever, not only because Bloodborne is a PlayStation exclusive, but also because Sony and Tencent now jointly own 30 percent of FromSoftware. Sony even bought Nixxes to help it work on PC ports.
To make up for the lack of the PC version, fans have modified aspects of the game in Elden Ring. For example, a recent mod introduced Bloodborne’s iconic gun to the game, while another went a step further and added Bloodborne’s combat mechanics. What’s more, players have even figured out how to recreate the infamous ‘Father Gascoine’ as a build in Elden Ring. If that wasn’t enough, a Minecraft player even recreated the world of Yharnam as a tribute to the game.
