A Bloodborne Remaster for PC and PS5 is Possible, But Sony Isn’t Budging
While Bloodborne hit the shelves with its PS4 launch, we are still yet to see a PS5 remaster and PC port come to fruition and it’s certainly not due to technical reasons that Sony’s keeping us from enjoying a next gen iteration of the beloved title.
Lance Mcdonald, the very same person who developed the unofficial 60 FPS patch for the game stated that there are currently no technical barriers between Bloodborne and the chances of a PC port or a PlayStation 5 remaster for that matter and Sony could pull it off anytime they want to without any support from the developer, From Software, as it was rumored a few days ago.
I don't know where the "FROMSOFTWARE engine is messy / spaghetti code" idea keeps coming from. It's not true, and there are literally zero technical barriers between Bloodborne and a PC/60fps PS5 port/re-release. Sony can do it at any time they like without FROM's support. https://t.co/xMB0moiyLX

Explaining further, Lance Mcdonald revealed that the Bloodborne 60 FPS patch was managed with only two lines of code and that Japan Studio managed to create a working PC iteration of the game before they were shut down, so it’s quite possible that Sony still has access to this build.
The Bloodborne PC port has been rumored to be in the works for quite some time along with a PlayStation 5 remaster as well as a sequel to the hit From Software tile.
If it’s true that Sony doesn’t need support from From Software in any official capacity for the port and the remaster, they could be revealed and released at any time, even as the Japanese Studio has its hands full with Elden Ring. Considering both companies haven’t talked about the game on an official basis for quite a while, we shouldn’t hold our breath in the hopes of an imminent announcement.
