Coronavirus issues aside, the next-gen PlayStation 5 will have a holiday 2020 release date.
Based on the current rumours, Horizon Zero Dawn 2, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and a PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale sequel will all launch on the console.
But one PlayStation-exclusive that seemingly won’t get a sequel is Bloodborne, or at least not for the time being.
That’s according to industry insider Omnipotent, who recently discussed upcoming From Software game Elden Ring on ResetEra.
After revealing more about Elden Ring’s open-world design and gameplay philosophy, Omnipotent discussed the possibility of a Bloodborne sequel.
And it’s bad news for fans of what is arguably the best PS4 game ever made, because a sequel doesn’t appear to be on the cards.
“From works on multiple projects all the time,” Omnipotent explains. “As of right now, the game isn’t in development or in line to be in development.
“So in the event that a Bloodborne sequel does happen, it’s not happening any time soon.”
On the plus side, the post does detail some of the ways in which Elden Ring will take the Dark Souls formula and expand on it.
The big difference between Elden Ring and previous From Software games is that the world will be vaster and feel much more alive.
This will be achieved through a combination of dynamic day and night cycles, weather, lighting and even wildlife.
“Dynamic day/night cycles, lighting, weather, I’ll even throw you a bone and say wildlife, enemies out in the open world that change their positioning, both big and small,” reads the latest Omnipotent post.
“Things that make the world feel like it lives and breathes and doesn’t just exist as your playground and while they’re relatively minor when looked at as singular elements.”
“You start to take all of these elements and put them together and ultimately what you have is something that again, shares the same DNA as past games, but culminates into something different.”
Elden Ring is described as a “fantasy action-RPG adventure” set within a world created by Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki and George R.R. Martin.
“Danger and discovery lurk around every corner in FromSoftware’s largest game to-date,” the description reads.
There’s no word on a release date, although the latest rumours suggest it will launch later this year.
Sony and From Software will also reportedly release a new and improved version of PS3 hit Demon’s Souls on the next-gen PlayStation.
