Another week, another Bloodborne rumor. The latest murmurings regarding FromSoftware’s cult-classic comes from PlayStation podcaster and insider Colin Moriarty, who suggested over Twitter yesterday that Bluepoint Games is working on a Bloodborne game. Recently acquired by Sony for its growing stable of first-party PlayStation studios, Bluepoint is the developer that was responsible for PS5’s Demon’s Souls, as well as several other remakes and remasters such as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection and Shadow of the Colossus.
“I’m hearing through the grapevine Bluepoint may be on a journey to Yharnam,” Moriarty tweeted. Yharnam shouldn’t require any introduction for Bloodborne players, as the Victorian-era city serves as the game’s central location.

Moriarty didn’t have much to add, but further rumblings on Discord suggest that Bluepoint is working on not one, but two Bloodborne projects. The first of these is supposedly a remaster of FromSoftware’s 2015 classic, while the second is purportedly a full-blown sequel that would should serve as a direct follow-up to the original game.
Hunt your nightmares as you search for answers in the ancient city of Yharnam, now cursed with a strange endemic illness spreading through the streets like wildfire. Danger, death and madness lurk around every corner of this dark and horrific world, and you must discover its darkest secrets in order to survive.
There’s no indication of whether the original Bloodborne might ever receive an official 60 FPS update for PS5, but a coder by the name of Lance McDonald had developed a patch that unlocks the game’s FPS, allowing it to run at higher frame rates. The beauty of that patch was demonstrated in a video shared by Digital Foundry last year.
