Why hasn't Sony remastered Bloodborne?

What time is it?
It isn't very good, and did not sell great and the weakest of these style games.
 
I think people don't understand the complexities involved.

Bloodborne wasn't made by SIE, so in order to patch or update it, you're looking at contracting out FromSoftware who is clearly busy as it is with Elden Ring and AC6.

If you look at Last Guardian it is the same situation. The team no longer exists and the game hasn't been patched or updated.

Last of Us Remastered hasn't either and that is likely due to the remake. Spider-Man wasn't patched but a remaster was released.

Infamous Second Sons was patched

Sony is no longer in bed with Quantic, so no patches.

The biggest surprise is the lack of an official update for Killzone Shadow Fall to increase resolution, though the game runs 60fps in BC mode.

really isnt any complexities.

theres no financial incentive. Xbox has had a extremely dry spells of no games. Things would look pretty dire for years without the Bethesda purchase. Halo and Forza are the only notable things to come out in a whilee. Hence they had a incentive to update old games, to have content. Money isnt a issue for them. management of development is.

I bet Bloodborne would outsell any other sony game on steam

Sadly It wasnt in the Nvidia leak
It’s possible. Someone at Sony has to be gauging interest. Did Demon Souls meet expectations? Perhaps? Maybe not. Is Bluepoint interested in remastering more games? maybe not. Maybe they are remastering one last game, that game being Bloodborne. Only thing that matters is if Sony thinks they can milk money.
 
I just want this on PC. A sequel would be fantastic but I'm not holding my breath. I'd only want Miyazaki working on it, and presumably he's moved on.

Not sure how this is a response to me.

1) while a brand new Soulsborne is doing record-braking numbers, you don’t distract from that by talking about past games that are not ready to be re-released. You give the new game a lot of time to sell. Sony gets 30% of every PlayStation copy sold of Elden Ring.

2) we all know the upgraded PS5 Bloodborne version will be an ultimate edition bonus for the inevitable Bloodborne 2. :)

Because Demon’s Souls was older and could not be played on PS5.
Bloodborne can be played on PS5.

What the point to remaster a game from PS4 for PS5?

To improve performance ?

I don't even care about BB that much but even I am just wishing Sony remasters it so at least this part of the internet's painful history can be put to close.

But hat can be done with a patch.

BB will probably be remastered to PS6.

Gta5 it's doing it several times now, for more than a single generation. Ps5 can't run BB in it's current form @ 60fps, why not release it for ps5/pc?
So you want a patch... it will be remastered to PS6 I guess.

Now GTA is another story… it is a PS3 game like Demon’s Souls… so it needed a new remaster for PS5… the PS4 one added nothing just better resolution.

Even so I believe GTA could have been just a patch but Rockstar wanted to ask you again for the 3rd time I guess.

Honestly, do they really need to? Aside from a 4k upscale and 60fps, Bloodborne holds and will hold up well and only really needs a patch like GoW, GoT, Days Gone and Horizon got

I do want a PC port though, if only to have that Souls Collection on Steam be complete

Yeah. Also remastering a game always come with the chance of the dev team fucking up with the atmosphere and designs, so... Yeah, just patch it for PS5 and release it on PC.
 
maybe you rabid fans are overestimating how many copies such a game would sell?
I think those games where much more niche back then than today, as imo they got more populr after DSIII and now Elden Ring.

There also seems to be a fuckton of PC gamers who want to either play it for the first time or just double dip to play it at a higher res and framerate.

Honestly, I would love it to receive either a console patch or a port to PC. Game's awesome and people should be able to play it at it's best, which sadly isn't on the PS4.

Remake > Remaster
Depends on the age of the game IMO. Remaking Bloodborne, a game from last gen, just doesn't really make sense IMO.

Really, higher res, FPS, and textures would be more than enough. I mean, what we saw with Horizons, Days Gone, and God of War all sufficed. I'm sure Uncharted will as well.

Exactly. For Bloodborne to be so "niche", it still received a lot attention in the form of Sony related merchandise too. Just as much, if not more than other IPs that got ported to PC.

FS has a large base of loyal fans that would be more than happy to double dip on the occasion. I'm sure many would do the same for Demon's Souls on PC as well.

As someone that had their Souls light bulb turn on late, I'd certainly be down with the same. Bloodborne is a fantastic game, it's just so unfortunate that, even at the time, the game was not optimized well. Even on the console it was designed for. It's insane.

This game just need a 60fps update and maybe higher res? hell even the 60fps but with a fix framepacing would do it for me. The game doesn't have even a Pro update...

Because its coming soon with the announcement of bloodborne II by bluepoint games. There will be a PS5 version of bloodborne at 4k smooth 60fps with barely any loading thanks to ssd.
Yep. Bloodborne 2 will be anounced along with Bloodborne 1 remaster. They’ll release bloodborne 1 first to drum up hype and sales for Bloodborne 2
 
Because remasters are waste of time, money and expertise from all parties involved. It made some sense when retro compatibility was not a thing, but now? It's time to o move on...
 
A lot of the asset work that went into demons souls could easily apply here if Bluepoint wanted to remake it

I still think it’s FromSofts best work in terms of level design, combat, and bosses. Certainly their tightest game with the least flaws imho.

ER is massive and amazing but the boss battle encounters haven’t felt satisfying to win. They’re so aggressive it makes you just use some form of cheese
 
not enough interest? for the last 7 years people have been crying for a bloodborne remaster/sequel.

it's alright if you don't like the games but you're talking shit :messenger_tears_of_joy: poorly made? Elden Ring is higher rated than any PS exclusive title so yeah alright...
he said "poorly-made tech wise" he ain't lying and he wasn't talking about review scores... you took it there. I'm a big fan of From games... they lack on the tech side.

you should probably chill, it's Friday... take it easy. he's just checking From on their tech, not the entire game... which is currently my top game of the year.

Why does this need to be remade? De Souls was a ps3 title so it looked quite dated. Bloodborne was a ps4 title and honestly, it doesn't look much worse than Elden Ring. At most, they can throw it on ps5 and unlock 60fps. It would be a waste of resources remaking it.

They should remaster it to 2160p 60FPS (they can do it), and also announce BB 2 in collab with from soft and blue point. In the engine they used to create demons souls. Sorry but that game is a generation ahead visually than any from soft game. And I love Elden ring.

Considering from was making dark souls 3, sekiro, and bloodborne at the same time. I think with the hell of blue point, they can easily make a BB2. Blue point made a perfect remake of demons souls.

Because they are idiots maybe??!

There is at least 2-3 millions copies left on the table between consoles and pc.
