Sony has slowly been bringing some of its most popular PlayStation console exclusives to PC. From The Last of Us to Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered to God of War, the list of playable PlayStation games on PC has been growing steadily each month.

But there's one game that fans have been clamoring for that has yet to make it to PC: FromSoftware's Bloodborne.

Released in 2015, Bloodborne is an action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware, the makers of the hit Dark Souls series. Bloodborne shared many of the same core gameplay mechanics as Dark Souls but was improved on some of the Souls-like aspects, the most notable being its faster-paced combat and varied weapons.

Bloodborne was initially released on PlayStation 4 and despite the game's popularity, Sony has yet to issue a remake or remaster. While you can play it on PlayStation 5, many are hoping for a full-fledged remake. But beyond a PS5 version, there's another crowd of gamers hoping to see the game make its way to PC.

FromSoftware president and Bloodborne game director Hidetaka Miyazaki has been asked before about the possibility of both a remake and PC port of the game. And every time he gives fans the same response — FromSoftware doesn't own the IP rights and therefore can't make that decision. It's up to Sony.

In a recent interview with PCGamer, however, the site asked if Miyazaki would "personally" like to see Bloodborne come to PC someday. Here's what he said:

"I know for a fact these guys want a Bloodborne PC port. If I say I want one, I'll get in trouble as well. But it's nothing I'm opposed to.

Obviously, as one of the creators of Bloodborne, my personal, pure honest opinion is I'd love more players to be able to enjoy it. Especially as a game that is now coming of age, one of those games of the past that gets lost on older hardware—I think any game like that, it'd be nice to have an opportunity for more players to be able to experience that and relive this relic of the past. So as far as I'm concerned, that's definitely not something I'd be opposed to."

Since Bloodborne's release, FromSoftware has been busy with games like Dark Souls 3 (2016), Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (2019), Elden Ring (2022), and Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon (2023). The developer has most recently been working on the first major expansion for the award-winning Elden Ring, titled Shadow of the Erdtree, which is set to launch on Friday, June 21st.

FromSoftware's future projects remain a mystery, but it's clear now that the developers would love to work on a Bloodborne PC port. Unfortunately, it seems that will ultimately be Sony's call.
