A PC port for Bloodborne is something players have been asking for since the game originally launched in 2015. While we still don’t know anything official, a recent update provided by a reliable insider might just give us a faint glimmer of hope, or at least explain why it's not happened yet.
GamesBeat reporter and insider Jeff Grubb recently appeared on the Xbox Expansion Pass podcast and discussed various topics, including Bloodborne. Speaking of a possible PC port, he said, “I think the answer to that is nothing is happening with Bloodborne right now. And I think the reason for that continues to be that FromSoftware is very busy with Elden Ring”.
He continued, saying that a port couldn't be done without the original developer being involved, “FromSoftware built that game in such a way that you couldn’t just hire a team to go in there and do the work for them. You’d have to work in conjunction with FromSoftware". Considering a port would require a lot of hand-holding, Grubb believes that FromSoftware just doesn’t have the time for that right now. While this is far from a confirmation of a PC version of Bloodborne, it does hint at why it's not happened just yet.
Grubb also suggested that Sony could just hire another development team to help work on a possible PC port as well. This is possible now more than ever, not just because Bloodborne is a PlayStation exclusive, but also because Sony and Tencent now jointly own 30 percent of FromSoftware. Sony has even acquired Nixxes to help it work on PC ports.
To make up for the lack of a PC version, fans have been modding aspects of the game into Elden Ring. For instance, a recent mod introduced the iconic pistol from Bloodborne into the game, while another went a step further and added Bloodborne’s combat mechanics. Furthermore, players even figured out how to recreate the infamous ‘Father Gascoine’ as a build in Elden Ring. If that wasn’t enough, a Minecraft player even recreated the world of Yharnam as a tribute to the game.
