PlayStation's recent State of Play has once again sent Bloodborne fans spiraling down a dark, treacherous hole of disappointment. While a remaster of Until Dawn for PS5 and PC twists the knife, the real anguish lies in the comments of former Game Informer and Fanbyte senior editor, Imran Khan. Brace yourselves, fellow hunters, for the tale that unfolds is one of shattered dreams and dashed hopes.
1: Dreams of Redemption, Crushed by RealityIn the wake of insider Lance McDonald's claim that a Dreams port for PC and PS5 was scrapped, a dubious ResetEra user raised doubts about the information. They pointed to McDonald's previous claims about Bloodborne, which had left fans yearning for a remaster in the past. But fear not, for Khan leapt to McDonald's defense, confirming that Bloodborne was, indeed, "at one point in the works" for both PS5 and PC.
2: Sinking into the Abyss of UncertaintyBefore you start sharpening your saw cleavers in anticipation, I must be the bearer of bad news. Khan revealed that it has been "literal years" since he last heard anything about the Bloodborne project, urging fans not to "hold their breath." Alas, the path to a remaster seems foggy and treacherous, much like the streets of Yharnam themselves. We've had countless rumors and supposed hints over the years, leaving us perpetually haunted by the elusive Bloodborne remaster.
3: A Dance of Two ScenariosIf PlayStation has indeed toiled away on a Bloodborne remaster for years, we're left with two possible scenarios. Either they are cunningly biding their time, waiting for the perfect moment to unleash the remaster upon us, or, in a cruel twist of fate, they have abandoned the project altogether. The latter seems more likely, as if the gods of PlayStation derive sadistic pleasure from watching Bloodborne fans writhe in agony.
4: A Hunter's Lament: The Case for a Bloodborne RemasterThe frustration among fans stems from the fact that a Bloodborne remaster makes perfect sense both financially and critically. Unlike recent titles such as The Last of Us Part 2 and the impending Until Dawn, Bloodborne is the one PS4 exclusive that would truly benefit from a remaster. Its reputation precedes it, and the prospect of improved visuals and performance would undoubtedly drive fans into a frenzy. Alas, PlayStation seems strangely indifferent to our plight, almost as if they revel in our suffering.
5: A Cruel Symphony: PlayStation's Disdain for Bloodborne Fan-GamesTo add insult to injury, PlayStation now appears more determined than ever to quash the dreams of Bloodborne fan-games. The beloved fan project, Bloodborne Kart, was forced to shed its Bloodborne branding after a stern message from Sony. Oh, PlayStation, why do you harbor such enmity toward us? Is there no end to our torment?
As we traverse the twisted labyrinth of Bloodborne rumors and speculation, we find ourselves caught in a cruel dance of hope and despair. The prospect of a remaster shines like a guiding lantern in the darkness, teasing us with the promise of an enhanced Yharnam. Yet, we must confront the possibility that this dream may forever elude us. Oh, Bloodborne fans, let us stand together, united in our longing, as we await the day when the hunt truly begins anew.
