Bloodborne


 

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, and sometimes an Easter egg is just an Easter egg.

At least, that’s the case with Déraciné, the recent PlayStation VR adventure game from Bloodborne developer From Software.

A certain doll found in Déraciné definitely seemed to hint that Bloodborne 2 was in the works. After all, it was a doll, one of Bloodborne‘s main figures, that also performed the game’s famous “Make Contact” gesture, with an item description that referenced an “unfinished tale,” which sounded like a pretty direct reference to Bloodborne 2‘s development.

Unfortunately, From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki has responded to the Bloodborne 2 speculation, and he’s here to shatter our dreams, just as he does with his games’ punishing difficulties.

In a recent interview with Xataka (via VG 24/7), Miyazaki confirmed that the doll in Déraciné was indeed an Easter egg referencing Bloodborne. Unfortunately, it has nothing to do with Bloodborne 2.

“The Easter egg in itself is not indicative that we are going to launch Bloodborne 2,” Miyazaki said. “I’m not in a position to talk about a possible release of Bloodborne 2.… It’s just something that we explored among ourselves, because we love Bloodborne.”

Whether Bloodborne 2 is ever happening is still a mystery, but we’d be hard-pressed to imagine that Sony wouldn’t be interested in publishing a sequel to one of the PlayStation 4’s best exclusives. Still, it seems likely that Miyazaki wants to focus on the present, with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice set to launch in a little over three (excruciating) months. On top of that, we’d imagine that, even if From was working on Bloodborne 2, Sony wouldn’t want Miyazaki spoiling the surprise.
