From Software’s latest title, Elden Ring was undoubtedly the developer’s most successful work yet. The game created headlines by staying on top of Steam charts for a lot of weeks. But there is another From Software franchise that perfected the art of soul-like games and that’s none other than Bloodborne.
Bloodborne launched in 2015 for the PlayStation 4. It received immense praise from both the fans and the critics. To this day, the game is considered one of the best action RPG games on the PlayStation. Despite its massive popularity, From Software hasn’t done anything to the game lately.
Bloodborne isn’t getting Updated by Form Software
While some of the other games are getting updates to make them utilize the features of next-gen hardware, Bloodborne hasn’t been updated. We saw games like The Last of Us getting a remake, and even the Witcher 3 which was also released the same year is getting a new-gen patch.
To put salt on the wounds of the fans who wanted a Bloodborne update, Jeff Grubb just confirmed that From Software won’t be updating it anytime soon. In a recent episode with Xbox Expansion Pass, the game journalist stated:
'I think nothing is happening with Bloodborne. The answer to that is From Software is very busy with Elden Ring.' He said, 'While Sony could a hire a team to work on it, From Software built the game in such a way that you couldn't just hire a team to work on it. They'd have to open doors to the part of a code that is a bit messed up.'

Of course, owing to Elden Ring‘s success, that ought to be their main concern at least from a business perspective. The game has reportedly sold 16.6 million copies so far according to Statista which in itself is stupendous as the game only came out this year.
On the brighter side of things, Jeff has stated that this doesn’t reflect that they are done with Bloodborne. Updates are expected but that isn’t happening anytime soon though it could happen in the future. Bloodborne does require an update as there are a few issues with the came. Primarily it can’t do 60 FPS, it has frame pacing issues.
We can only hope that the update happens soon as fans are really up for a refreshed Bloodborne experience. We will be sure to keep an eye out for any latest information so stay tuned for that.
