Sony deleted a tweet about Bloodborne right this moment in what looks as if a mix-up and never essentially a tease for a sequel, remaster, PC launch, or the rest associated to the franchise.
Earlier right this moment, the official Sony Twitter account posted a tweet asking the account’s 5.5 million followers to attempt to establish which PlayStation recreation cowl it was referencing with a zoomed-in picture. Followers in a short time recognized the sport cowl as that of 2015’s Bloodborne, and a few took this to imply that Sony was hyping up some type of Bloodborne-related announcement. Not lengthy after the tweet went up, Sony pulled it down with none rationalization.
Whereas information of a Bloodborne remaster or sequel could be very thrilling, this most likely wasn’t that. In spite of everything, the tweet got here from Sony and never the corporate’s devoted gaming division, PlayStation. The PlayStation Twitter account is traditionally the place for teasers and bulletins about video video games.
Not solely that, however the PlayStation account has greater than 5 occasions the variety of followers (27.5 million) than the Sony account (5.5 million), so an announcement or tease on the PlayStation account would make extra sense if the goal was to assist unfold the phrase far and extensive. Moreover, the PlayStation account by no means reacted to the Sony tweet about Bloodborne.
A extra doubtless state of affairs is that the social media crew behind Sony’s Twitter account noticed a chance to create engagement and posted the tweet to attain that. It succeeded, for positive, however most likely not in the best way that the corporate wished. This most likely explains why the tweet bought yanked. You possibly can view the unique tweet under.
Bloodborne was developed by From Software program and initially launched for PS4 in 2015. Followers have been calling for a remaster or a sequel, or a launch on PC, however as of but, it hasn’t occurred. Sony owns the rights to Bloodborne, so whether or not or not any additional entries within the sequence are made would presumably be determined by it and never From Software program.
From Software program’s newest launch, 2022’s Elden Ring, is the 12 months’s best-selling recreation to this point within the US. It’s anticipated to be 2022’s best-selling title total within the US, even outselling Name of Responsibility: Trendy Warfare II. Given the immense gross sales success of Elden Ring, the seemingly extra doubtless wager could be that From Software program would make a sequel to Elden Ring earlier than it made one other Bloodborne recreation. However something is feasible, like the likelihood that Sony may assign one other studio to creating extra Bloodborne, as a hypothetical instance.
Sony’s subsequent massive recreation is God of Conflict Ragnarok, which releases in November for PS5 and PS4.
