Bloodborne Listed as a “Franchise” by a Senior PlayStation Executive
Fans have been clamoring for a Bloodborne successor for the majority of this generation but without any success, but Sony might have other plans for it.
As discovered on the Linkedin profile of senior PlayStation executive, Shiva Allari, Sony apparently considers Bloodborne as a franchise. The game was developed in collaboration between From Software and SIE Japan Studio. Sony owns the Bloodborne IP just like Demon’s Souls, so this listing can’t be taken as a mistake but rather intentional.
In the profile of Shiva Allari, the executive mentions working with PlayStation on franchises “such as Call of Duty, Assassins Creed, The Witcher, Overwatch, Fortnite, God of War, Fifa, Football Manager, Sonic, Total War and Bloodborne.”
The odd inclusion here is obviously Bloodborne, which has only seen a single game along with a DLC expansion on the PS4. It has been quite a while since its release, since the game launched back in March 2015.
There have been rumors about a remaster of Bloodborne that would launch for PC and PS5, but nothing concrete has come out of it as of yet.
After the success of Bloodborne, From Software has released two more games, Dark Souls 3 and Sekiro, in addition to a PSVR exclusive game called Déraciné. They are currently working on Elden Ring, which was first announced back at E3 2019. It will be another multiplatform game that will be published by Bandai Namco.
