In news that’s sure to have Twitter in a twist, it sounds like Bloodborne will release on PC at some point in the future. This has been a recurring rumour for a while now, although the sources have always been shaky. Not much has changed on that front, although we like to think there’s no smoke without fire – and, well, a few embers are beginning to burn now.
The story re-emerged with Twitter user Sloth Mom (we know!), who claimed to have had the conversion “confirmed” by a “very trusted source”. They added: “I have a lot of faith in the company who's doing the port, you won't be disappointed. It genuinely is happening.” This then kickstarted are tidal wave of teases.
Renowned deals expert Wario64 later added that you can “play Bloodborne on PC with PlayStation Now or wait a little longer”. It’s unclear if he was just hopping onto the already snowballing Twitter rumours, but Kinda Funny host Imran Khan followed up: “Not going to comment specifically on Bloodborne on PC rumours, but suffice to say FromSoftware fans probably have a lot of reasons to be happy in the next two years.”
With the rumours set in motion, Sloth Mom then returned with the following nugget: “I can confirm that it's not just a PC port of Bloodborne, what was supposed to be revealed today was a Bloodborne Remastered that was coming for PlayStation 5 and PC. I don't know of any release date as of yet.”
We’ll contact Sony for comment, but realistically we can’t imagine it’s going to tell us anything right now. A potential revival of the Bloodborne intellectual property – whether it’s on PS5 or PC or both – should prove positive news for franchise fans, though, as it increases the odds of a sequel at some point in the future. And we all want that, don’t we?

Bloodborne with a stable frame rate would be a dream come true. That was one of the only negatives.
I love my PS Pro but my brother built a lovely PC rig for about £650 that runs all his games buttery smooth, I'll be keeping a very close eye on the PS5 price because if it creeps anywhere close to this I'll probably just jump to PC as Sony are giving me less and less reasons to throw my cash their way.
Of course. We all.need to get used to this, Sony exclusives becoming console exclusive only a few years down the line.
The Last Of Us will be next and then probably God Of War.
As for Bloodborne, it's one of my biggest gaming regrets that I didn't take advantage of when it was available for free through PS Plus. Whilst it doesn't look like my kind of game for free it was definitely worth downloading and trying it at least.
I think though if a remastered version comes out on PS5 I may give it a go. I've watched some playthroughs and it's certainly not for the faint hearted!
PC can have our leftovers.
Imran Khan has a bit of a shaky track record when it comes to this sort of stuff, so I would take anything he says with a grain of salt.
I mean this has been going for years now, ever since the game released and Amazon France listed it for PC about 4 years ago. I'm not against any ps4 game appearing on PC but I do not hold much stock in those sources. Plus why do we need remasters of PS4 games? PS5 will play them and boost a large number of them.
I couldn't care less about Bloodborne (and all Souls-like games to be honest) so it's no biggie to me. Let the PC crowd have some breadcrumbs off our tables
@thebakerswife Alongside these rumours there was some insinuation that Elden Ring may not be this year and could still be a little time away, but it all seemed a bit vague so not sure.
I might not bother with a ps5 at this rate and just get a beefy PC. That way I’ll be able to play MS flight sim alongside PS games... hmmm
@East76landS Pretty much my sentiment. I wasn't sure 100% if Sony owned the IP or not but based on a quick google search it sounds like they do. I do not like this trend of exclusives going to PC.
I don't quite buy this one. The remaster makes no sense with Sony planning backwards compatibility this time...
If it was meant to be announced during the Sony Games reveal then it actually would have sucked.... Here's our brand new console the PS5, here are the games, a remaster from PS4 and a remake from PS3... So I'm not buying into this one
Bloodborne has been out for half a decade now, 5 years! PC players have been asking for a port of this game for literally half a decade. Good for them if the waiting has finally paid off.
Could be Sony is fueling the appetite for when they announce a possible Bloodborne 2 or a Souls launch title like Demon's Souls on the PS5.
Throwing cash at the screen but nothing is happening
That would mean that current ps4 titles wouldn't be enhanced on the ps5, which is clearly bollocks. Right? Right?!
If true, this combined with the recent Bloodborne comic books give me so much more hope for Bloodborne 2.
Release the best games from last gen on PC, then release the sequels on PS5.
Wow stil self entitled people crying about games going to pc, its a good thing this is another way for Sony to get extra money which can go too more exclusives etc also it seems that its games that have been out sometime and nothing new, so what's the problem apart from wanting a good moan
Bloodborne is one of those games that really did make people buy a PS4 to play - not necessarily in huge numbers but, for example, Souls games get a lot of views on Youtube and on Twitch and I know several youtubers comment that they have a PS4 as well as PC for this game.
I think that if Bloodborne comes to PC it will be a good thing as it will open the game up and possibly fuel funding and desire for a second game or something else which will also start as a PS4 exclusive.
So bluepoint? Is remaking bloodborne instead? 😂? Instead of demon soul. Now that will be a shocker,!
@b1ackjack to me this indicates that PS5 will only play PS4 games as a PS4 would which is very disappointing
Is the source reliable? This is the first time I heard sloth mom.
I'd get a remaster, love Bloodborne, easily one of my favourites.
Not going to have to wait too long until we get Thomas The Tank Engine mod.
Love Bloodborne but wouldn't replay it this soon just for a better frame rate and such. Too many other games to play.
Ugh, hope that whole remaster thing is either inaccurate or, like Mafia III, current owners also get the remaster.
I’m going to be very unhappy if paid remasters of PS4 titles start popping up on the PS5, especially first party ones.
@SaikoWaifu2003 I do think they are drumming up interest in Horizon Zero Dawn II with the upcoming PC port of the first game. Could be a similar situation here.
An enhanced port (PC or PS5, take your pick) is borderline a necessity.
Bloodborne just doesn't run well on PS4.
PS4 Pro is a little more stable, but still not quite there.
I hope not i hope its a Demon Souls remaster and BB coming too PC its how old is the game already so i dont really care.
Well those PC peasants need something they can play from HDD.🤓
I'm not sure it's a big deal tbh given it's from Soft and not really first party.
I think if sony are going to make you pay for PS5 remaster versions of ps4 games, when Microsoft are boosting versions of those games that dont have a remaster and smart delivery updating content you've already bought if there is a next gen version, then they are in big trouble next gen. Dont get me wrong, the game is a classic, my favourite fromsoft game and ps4 exclusive. I would love to play it with no load times, 60 fps 4k hdr and would probably buy it but it's a dangerous narrative to feed! Combined with it coming to PC, good to open it up to a new audience but theres no doubt this game was a system seller. At what stage is it a better value proposition to build a pc, get pc gamepass and wait for sony exclusive ports?
More exclusives out of the bag eh guys?...
I'm sure nothing at all is wrong.
If this is true, then I would like to know why is Sony pushing people to go PC next generation
Just hope SONY will actually start being honest for a change and call their games for what they are...timed exclusives.
A lot of people would rather spend those 500$ on their PCs and wait for a couple of years for those exclusives to come to PC.
Oh man, brilliant, I’ve been waiting for a proper frame rate. Again, would like to remind people that plenty last-gen games go multi-plat when they’re remastered!
Sony will not release Bloodborne on PC..alone. they will release bloodborne and many other exclusives because they are awake and they know the PC community is huge so they want their share. they want this big platform to be another source for sales. they're approaching it with baby steps but they'll eventually take a piece of this cake.
Note to PlayStation fanboys: since Sony announced their first party Horizon zero dawn officially for Pc you should believe all the port rumors. now HZD is on steam and y'all think Bloodborne is impossible. one more thing the Red dead redemption 1 is coming to Pc as a remake.
@gollumb82 I'd let you have some fps from my table so you can get past 30fps. i'll keep my 90 and give you 30. so you stop being a peasant.
Source: trust me dude.
It's fake. Don't get me wrong, I can see BB coming to PC in some point but not in a million years will be announced in the spotlight of a PlayStation event.
Also, are you kidding??? Bloodborne remaster and not BB2??? WTF Sony/Fromsoftware????
Edit: look at this: https://twitter.com/DGDPurpleReign/status/1268901408503410688
Haha calm down it was a joke.
You r right though. I haven't got the PS5 yet and I stopped playing on PC many years ago 😃
I hate to disappoint you but apart from a PS4 I also have a decent gaming PC I just prefer playing on a console. Also, take your 90 fps on multiplats, I'd much rather have 30 in story driven PS exclusives that PC will never get or will be lucky to get 5 years later.
@Shepard93n7 I think I believe it because the trust worthy Wario64
have teased this as well by saying you can either play bloodborne on ps now or wait a little bit longer. there's no way Sony will announce it on the event. they'll announce the remaster and later on we'll find the PC confirmation or news on their website, twitter or blog. but live? no.
I honestly believe this rumor. because Horizon Zero Dawn is a first party game and it was ported to PC by Sony themselves. so why shouldn't a 3rd party game be ported? I think after the HZD port nothing should surprise you anymore.
@BRUTALSAM note to you I have a great PC & have 0% interest in gaming on it cannot wait for the PS5.
guys wait for Sony to confirm I'm not sure they will do that many more games on PC they don't need to.
@gollumb82 me too & I actually hate gaming on PC
@David187 why did you buy that "great pc" ? I mean if you just wanna watch movies or surf the web then an intel HD with 2gb of ddr3 ram is enough for that. my friend gave me his PS4 to play bloodborne and I gave it back to him. the antialiasing was horrible. it looked like dark souls 1 at 720p low settings. when you spend years gaming on high quality and high frames that becomes the standards and anything less than that won't please you. so that's my case.
@BRUTALSAM you do know a great PC can help with many other things than gaming right? I can see you think the PC is so great you keep hanging around a Playstation site says it all for me.
@David187 my bad. I still don't understand why would anyone play on 30fps with low quality graphics.
@David187 Don't feed the troll mate.
@Col_McCafferty Only ONE game out of these regularly occurring rumors turned out to be heading to pc and you typed a whole article about how everything else is coming over like Microsoft's games. Lol shut up. This is how rumors spread.
Oh, Herman, my sweet little lier.
I guess it can also mean that you do not have a PS4 and all you do here is troll. Why else would you be here if you don't use your PS4 at all?
See, it works both ways.
@ImHereNow How about Lol no, I won't shut up.
Time will tell my friend, time will tell.
@BRUTALSAM Red Dead 1? Played it already mate, ten years ago in fact.
If Bloodborne is getting remastered for PS5, I am 150% playing that game alllllll over again.
@Col_McCafferty don't waste the energy I did once big regret
@DominatorV93 yep I hear that.
@David187 I just don't get it. Play on whichever platform you prefer, I don't care.
I went from a 360 to a PS4 this gen and haven't regretted my choice one bit. It's killed it this gen as far as SP games go and I imagine the PS5 will be equally as strong.
@PushCircle the sony fanboys think they own those games lol they get so angry when a game comes to PC. let's just laugh at them and tell them: you don't own those games. they're Sony's games and they'll sell them on any platform they want and there's nothing you can do about it.
@Col_McCafferty you played red dead 1 on PS3 720p and 30fps sometimes dropping to below 30. it's being remade with the RDR2 Engine probably with ray tracing, 4k support and HDR. you'll just regret playing it on PS3 when it's released next year for ps5 and pc.
@BRUTALSAM Actually I played it on a 360.
@David187 I hate to break it to ya but Sony are the owners of those exclusive games and they'll release them on any platform they want. you don't own those games. they're not yours. simple as that. even if they wanna release bloodborne on the Nintendo switch there's nothing you can do about it. unless you're Kenichiro Yoshida
@Col_McCafferty that's even worse. you mean to tell me playing it on the 360 is gonna be the same experience as playing the remake made with RDR2 engine at a higher resolution with HDR and ray tracing and 60 to 120 fps?
@BRUTALSAM also, if it's true that it's being remade for PS5 I'll probably play it again. It's a brilliant game.
@SaikoWaifu2003 Where did I say I was?
@BRUTALSAM No but none of those features were available back in 2010, on any platform.
@Shepard93n7 most likely they'll announce the remaster and tease Bloodborne 2 at the same event.
@BRUTALSAM I don't own Sony go tell them you want the games
@SaikoWaifu2003 No problem.
@Col_McCafferty yep some reason people want to come here to tell us about how great the PC can run games like it is unknown or something.
@BRUTALSAM How about getting a job instead of trolling a PS site all day? Lol, according to steam surveys most of you PC kids are beneath an Xbox One X, yet online you all talk about framerates and graphics quality that your garbage machines can't even reach lol.
Time will tell... that's even more reason to shut up instead of making up wild scenarios.
@East76landS Sorry, but £650 is not going to build a good PC. That machine will likely become outdated and struggle to run games at 1440 if it isn't already now. Meanwhile, we've already seen a 4k 60 ps5 game demo.
@ImHereNow Ooh ain't you the charmer!
@ImHereNow kid I never bought a console and never will. not an xbox fan. not a playstation fan
@ImHereNow could you please link me to the PS5 4k 60fps demo? if you're referring to the UE5 demo that was running at 1440p 30fps without Ray tracing but it was loading 8k textures which is impressive but what you don't realize is that this is an engine. games will be made for PC. xbox. mobile..etc using this same engine. it's not exclusively for ps5.
Bloodborne on pc or PS5 would be great. That game needs a proper frame rate and although I love the look it could do with better graphic post.
@BRUTALSAM "games will be made for PC. xbox. mobile..etc using this same engine." Lol no. PS exclusive games are not going to be made for those platforms and the power of the GPU combined with the far superior optimization that consoles receive will most certainly make 4k 60 a breeze in just about everything besides aimless wonderer fetch quest open world games.
@ImHereNow which game is that?
Great! The way things are going this will quickly reach the point where I won't need to buy Sony's GOD AWFUL hardware anymore. We all know they are CRAP at hardware design (With PS4 being the only console that wasn't a complete clusterf***, after CELL/split RAM [PS3], Emotion Engine [PS2], & indemic affine texture warping [PS1]), but we buy their machines to play the exclusive titles. The sooner Sony realizes hardware sales don't make money (often the opposite in fact), game sales do, and starts putting their 1st party output on PC day 1, the sooner things will be better for EVERYONE. (Sony will make more $, more people will play their games, AND their games will look & run MUCH better on non-crap hardware).
Let me tell you kids a story. Once upon a time there was no Digital Foundry (shocking, I know), there were no TVs/monitors capable of 60 fps output (let alone 120), nobody talked about frame pacing, screen tearing and how beefy your hardware is. People just enjoyed games. That's how I grew up to enjoy this hobby of ours (which in theory should unite us) and how I played many games that shape the gaming world we live in nowadays. But guess what? You didn' t play them and you won't. Why? Because they are not 4K/60/90/120. I genuinely feel sorry for you. There is a term for your kind and it starts with graphics and ends with the world's oldest profession. In other words, take your elitist 'PC can play it best' crap and go gloat about that where likeminded trolls feed. We'll be here enjoying games- maybe not in steady 60 fps, maybe not in true 4K (or even full HD sometimes) but it's about the plot, characters, soundtracks and the community that each platform grants. I never remember if I played a game in 4K/60, but I always remember what matters (the aforementioned stuff). So, please, just give it a rest would you kindly? (just going to see if this works)
This is good news regarding the rumored PS5 remaster. No comment on PC port since I'm a console gamer.
Your statement that you came here to counter the cries of fanboys over lost exclusives tells me all I need to know. Keep doing what you enjoy then! My guess is Sony will provide you with plenty of salt to rub into the wounds of those who have a problem with exclusives losing their status in the coming years. Enjoy!
I was thinking the same. No hard feelings then? I apologise if I came across as a jerk. It seems that you are not here merely to irritate people. I actually appreciate what PC gaming does for gaming in general, as I use GOG more than Steam to enjoy some classics. As for PS5, I'm probably going to wait a bit before buying (too much backlog on PS4). It does sound like it's going to be great so good times ahead. Cheers!
@BRUTALSAM Wait, so you've never bought a console and never will.so.wtf are you on here then?
That makes you one sad pathetic little individual amongst others that plague this site and the internet in general. Congrats.
Seriously man, are you really that bored?!
Lance McDonald said he's seen the "Evidence" they provided for their claim and non of it is actually true, whether a PC port is planned for future is unclear but what is clear is that this recent rumor is false.
@Col_McCafferty "Wait, so you've never bought a console and never will.so.wtf are you on here then?"
I've never bought a Space rocket, but I watched one take off last week. Was I wrong in showing an interest?
I really dislike the majority of Playstation exclusives, but I like to visit this site and read about them.
In summary, I can understand the reasons why BRUTALSAM may visit this site, without himself ever having purchased a console.
@Hengist That's really not the same thing at all and you know it.
And you dislike the majority of PlayStation exclusives? How do you know if you haven't played them?
Christ another PC weirdo.
"And you dislike the majority of PlayStation exclusives? How do you know if you haven't played them?"
I never mentioned that I'd never played them. That was your incorrect assumption.
There are many software titles which I've bought over the last 40 years of video gaming, that I have thought were terrible. A proportion of Playstation exclusives are included within that number.
"Christ another PC weirdo."
It's not big or clever to use derogatory remarks, if you can't conduct an intellectual conversation.
@BRUTALSAM Let's see how well it will play out for them when the PS5 will sell half as much (because it will no longer have exclusives) and Sony will miss out on PS Plus subscriptions (because less people will be buying their system).
One of the first games I bought after getting a PS4. I thought it was great, but the performance was not the best. I don't game on PC, but be good to see the game run better. Not sure I would want to replay it on PS5, like Dark Souls, I was quite glad when I finally completed the game!
@SaikoWaifu2003 attachment rates are an inaccurate metric to guess the real impact of exclusives in console sales, there are much more than 20% of PS4 users that buy console for it's exclusives but that attachment rate can't let you see the "big picture", for example, not everyone will buy every exclusive game, some people will rent those games, others will receive games as gifts, others will borrow games from a friend, others will buy used games, some people make game exchanges, others are still waiting for a price drop, also not everyone has the same tastes, I can like FIFA, Uncharted and Infamous, but the guy on my side can like cod, final fantasy, gravity Rush, Bloodborne, etc. In the end every person above chose PS4 directly or indirectly for it's exclusives and those number are not reflected on game sales.
People need to stop using the "attachment rate" argument, it's pointless, instead of comparing exclusive sales vs console sales it's better to compare number of people that have and play exclusives regularly vs console sales, but that info is harder to track I guess.
@thebakerswife yaaaaassssssss.... Elden Ring!!
@BRUTALSAM I think it’s great... who cares if Horizon and Bloodborne or any of these other ones go to PC. Or even Xbox for that matter. More money for Microsoft. More gamers getting to play some great games. I’ll fire this up on my pc just to see the improvements. Now if Sony decides to release Bloodborne 2 or Horizon Zero Dawn 2 on every machine from the get go ... well... I’ll reconsider getting a PS5 because at the moment their exclusives (for only a few years or not) are what attracts me to it most.
@Nickolaidas releasing every single PS4 exclusive on PC won't affect PS5 at all. not even a bit. Sony are looking for more money so they can make PS5 exclusives. the PS5 will sell pretty good because it'll have exclusives that are not on Pc or anywhere else as mentioned by the founder and ceo of Sony. for sony they're done with ps4 games they can't benefit from them anymore unless they sell them on other platforms and what's the best way to do that? on PC. cause switch is a no go. stadia is a no go. everything else is a no go.
lemme ask you a question. if all PS4 exclusives come to PC and PS5 will have its own exclusives that are not available anywhere else. only PS5..games like bloodborne 2, Horizon zero dawn 2, new killzone, God of War 5..etc would PS5 make huge sales? Yes it will. why? because Sony yelled loud and clear "PS5 games will not be playable on ps4"
@Hengist that guy is a troll. the article is talking about bloodborne coming to PC... "PC" and yet he asks people why they're commenting if they don't own a console. push square should add to their registration "please confirm you have a console to sign up" lol
@BRUTALSAM "releasing every single PS4 exclusive on PC won't affect PS5 at all. not even a bit"
Pretty sure it will, since it defeats the whole 'only on PlayStation' point. And if people see that PS4 games are coming to PC, they'll wait five more years for the PS5 games to come on PCs with SSDs that will be able to take it - backlogs be blessed.
Calm down everyone. Repeated off-topic and troll posts won't be tolerated.
Here you go push square since i am feeling generous. An old game that I can't name is being redeveloped for the ps5 and only the ps5 (not pc) it will also take advantage of the new ssd super fast loading architecture of the ps5.
This is why I say redeveloped and not remastered as the whole game from the graphic engine to every asset including all the sound files and the entire control set up is having to be redeveloped to take advantage of the new features that the ps5 and the new ps5 controller offer.
This is not what we could define under current standards as a remaster as new gameplay elements that will only be available on ps5 are introduced and hopefully make this a new experience for old fans and new players.
Actually don't understand why Sony takes Xbox as comoetetion and not a PC. That could destroy them
I can well believe releasing games like Bloodborne on PC. Just like Horizon Zero Dawn and Death Stranding releasing on PC. Sony already has got the sales out of them on console and they'd be saleable assets on PC, generate revenue for the company, and interest in 3 Sony IPs going forward. If the news accompanies announcement soon after of sequels heading to PS5 I can get it as both a marketing tool and income generators.
They're mostly really old games now in PlayStation terms. So I don't get the bitterness thing from some on here, I think it's be much better if more people get to enjoy more of these games. Maybe it does damage Sony's USP for the PS5 long term, releasing their IP on PC, but I guess that's something they've taken in to account. Honestly, this news just increases the prospect of a Bloodborne 2, and for me that's nothing but good news. I'd love a sequel.
Bloodborne on PC would be a day one purchase from me. Loved the game on the PS4 but it was plagued by lag at times and bad frame pacing.
@JJ2 Umm...you know that PC gamers have been using SSDs for years, right? I have had ssds in my gaming PC's for the last 7 years and also ray tracing for the last two. Consoles are just now catching up, as always.
