[Pushsquare] Sounds like Bloodborne will release on PC(for real this time but not really)

Time for our monthly Bloodborne will release on PC thread. Apparently this rumor has more insiders backing it up than the previous ones and we at least have the precedents of HZD and DS coming to PC so it might not be as farfetched as in times past.

Quote:
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.

Edit: Can a mod move this to Rumored and Unconfirmed Articles? Thank you.

My theory from the beginning has been that Sony is doing this to entice PC-only gamers to buy a PS5 for HZD2 (and now BB2), so now I'm thinking that BB2 may actually be a launch-window game.

It's like Dark Souls but a little faster and less plodding.

yep, pretty sure they'll do a timed exclusive thing now instead of genuine exclusivity.

i will buy sony's games @ full retail, even though many of them never get updated/patched. I will NOT buy PS5.

Fear the old code.

If it actually gets ported, will they stay true to the original and keep the wonderfully inconsistent frame times? Bloodbornes 30fps experience is like no other...
Though I'd still probably buy it... =p

Sony will just double dip. Release on PS5, wait 2 years, then release to PC for full price. They probably swallowed their pride with the everholding first party exclusives to make money. MS is smart enough to do it. It's all about product exposure and software sales. That's where the money is at even if you can't lock someone into an ecosystem a-la Apple.

correct, also known as timed exclusivity.

i doubt it'll be two years though. Maybe the first wave of PS5 only titles.

That's what I thought too with HZD. I wouldn't be surprised if this is how they viewed BB as well. I hope they don't botch BB2 like DS2.

It's mostly like Dark Souls but far more streamlined (or some would say dumbed down). Less wiki-ing around. I loved the dark atmosphere of it just like the other Souls games.

I hope the full retail version comes with the Old Hunter DLC.

I wish Sony would release HZD and BB with graphical upgrades that can showcase the PS5 and PC specially if they're charging full retail on steam.
