Hidetaka Miyazaki talks about the possibility of a remake of Bloodborne

From Software President Hidetaka Miyazaki spoke about the possibility of a Bloodborne remake and the advantages that waiting for new hardware could have when revisiting the PlayStation 4 classic.

“It's a title that we love very much, just like our fans,” Miyazaki told us when asked about the possibility of a Bloodborne remake. “It makes me very happy to see that there are still a lot of people passionate about this.”

But does the remake need to take advantage of new hardware to make its release worthwhile? For example, Demon's Souls was remade as a launch title for the PlayStation 5 after originally releasing on the PlayStation 3, a double generation leap that made the remake feel more meaningful.

“I think having new hardware is definitely part of what gives value to these new releases,” Miyazaki says. “Things you weren't able to do on previous generations of hardware, ways you couldn't deliver tangible expressions…new hardware sometimes makes that possible.”

“But I wouldn't say that's it,” he continues. “I think from a user perspective, modern hardware allows more players to appreciate these games. And so this ends up being a simple reason, but as a gamer, I think accessibility is important. I think that might be the main reason for bringing an older game to New platform.


Whether or not there will eventually be a Bloodborne remake, regardless of whether it's for PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 6, Miyazaki says he's “very happy” to see so many fans eagerly requesting a remake of his game.

The creator apologized for not being able to say anything more specific about the remake of the exclusive PlayStation 4 title, but said he's “excited” by the response it continues to generate.

“I am very happy to see that it is a title that holds a lot of memories, for me and for the team that worked on it,” he explains. “And when we see those emotional voices in the community, of course it excites us, and it makes us feel so lucky to have that and have these memories.”

For now, From Software is still busy developing the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion for Elden Ring, which Miyazaki described as the largest expansion his company has ever created.

Shadow of the Erdtree will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 21.
