PlayStation 5 Port Rumored, Too

Bloodborne PC port rumors have been escalating lately in light of the cancellation of the PS5 event that was originally scheduled to take place this week, hinting that this epic Soulslike game will finally be coming to your computer — and that's not all.

If you're unfamiliar with Bloodborne, it's a game that's firmly in the Soulslike genre (that is, games which are like Dark Souls). It had its fair share of popularity, but access to the game was limited to many as it is a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

Now, a new wave of rumors has popped up hinting that Bloodborne might be coming to PC. Better still, these same rumors claim that it was supposed to be announced at the canceled PS5 games event... which would probably mean that it was going to get a PS5 port as well.

What are the Bloodborne PC Port Rumors?

So, what's the basis of these rumors? As noted in the /r/GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit, this kicks off last month with an article by Game Rant. In it, the claim is made that an "unnamed insider" talked about Bloodborne is currently in development for PC.

If it were a few years ago, this might have been dismissed. However, Sony has shown an openness to porting previous exclusives to PC; note how Horizon Zero Dawn is finally getting a PC port after years as a PS4 exclusive.

Some of the claims about the PC port have come from Twitch streamer @CaseyExplosion on Twitter.

"For those just joining me, yes Bloodborne *will* be coming to PC, I've had it confirmed by a very trusted source, and I have a lot of faith in the company who's doing the port, you won't be disappointed," Casey said in a tweet. "It genuinely is happening."

"So, about that Bloodborne PC port," began a subsequent tweet. "You would've been hearing about it today anyway, because as far as I understand it, it was due to be announced at the now-delayed PS5 event that was scheduled for today."

"So, what I can confirm is that it's not just a PC port of Bloodborne, what was supposed to be revealed today was a Bloodborne Remastered/HD edition that was coming for PS5 and PC. I don't know of any release date as of yet."

Two sources seemingly talking about the same rumor is certainly interesting, but a third, more notable source has also hinted at something Bloodborne-related on the way.

"You can play Bloodborne on PC with PS Now...or wait a little longer," stated noted gaming industry tweeter @Wario64.

As always, you should take such rumors with a grain of salt — there's no firm confirmation whatsoever. That said, @Wario64 is generally pretty reputable, and all of the other sources that have been talking about this game tells me that we might just be seeing it make its reveal whenever the PS5's "The Future of Gaming Event" actually makes its debut.

What do you think about these Bloodborne PC port rumors? Do you think we'll actually see the game debut this year? Let us know in the comments below!
