Bloodborne Update: Now Launching March 24th

Masaaki Yamagiwa's Avatar Posted by Producer, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio

Bloodborne on PS4

Dear community,

It is with regret that I must inform you that Bloodborne will be slightly delayed.

While development continues unabated, we would like our team to deliver the best possible final experience. We were gratified by the feedback and data we received from those who participated in our limited Alpha test. The extra production time will also allow us to better integrate these learnings.

Bloodborne is now set to launch in North America exclusively on PS4 on March 24th, 2015.

Please look forward to some exciting Bloodborne news in early December. Thank you very much for your continued support.

Good. Dunno whose bright idea it was to release it in the same month as The Order: 1886, but that just struck me as a bad business decision.

Glad you’re letting your exclusives breathe a little.

Take your time! I’d hate to see it rushed to meet a deadline. I want quality and seems you guys do too :-)

This doesn’t bother me at all and with The Order out just two weeks later I can wait another month.

damn i was waiting for this but its fine..

It’s all good. That’s 3 exclusives in the span of 2 months.

The Order, Bloodborne and MLB The Show.

Take your time. Even though I look forward to this game above all, after the joy I had with Demon’s Souls, I’ll have complete patience to enjoy a game like that again. :)

You better make it up to the fans by announcing a PS4 bundle ;P

themewtwo456 said:

Honestly, this sucks but at least they’re letting their exclusives breathe. Releasing The Order, and Bloodborne on the same month was going to kill one, or the other. Maybe you could make a bundle??? ;)

Like everyone else has been saying I think this is good. Let your exclusives get some breathing space! Two victorianish games where both have warewolves in the span of 1 month would have been weird lol.

Take as long as you need to deliver a quality product.

Microsoft: exclusives, exclusives,exclusives, exclusives…..
Nintendo: Mega exclusives, Mega exclusives, Mega exclusives, Mega exclusives, Mega exclusives…..
Sony: Delay, Delay, Delay…..

Geatness awaits….

I will support “From Software’s” decision. I believe most fans of the development team will be more than happy to allot them the time needed to create another masterpiece. We got your back guys, no rush! (Right in time for my birthday gift too <3)

wenger56 said:

Thank you!!! I need some time to process all the awesomeness coming out!

perrandy said:

November 12th, 5:26 am

just hope that you are not delaying this so to cut the game in pieces in order to sell us everything else a la DLC…..

GRPitta said:

November 12th, 5:50 am

Yes, please take your time. Even if it needs to be delayed further again I wouldn’t mind. This is my most anticipated game and I want it to be the best possible.

On my Birthday! Yay! Too bad I won’t be getting it, it looks hard, lol. I’m done with games that make me rage. It looks great though!

    Happy upcoming birthday! :)

    Hopefully you can at least give Bloodborne a chance. The faster paced, more action-packed combat may be to your tastes.

Waiting for Greatness!

deadmantom said:

November 12th, 6:11 am

Take all the time needed to make this the best game you can. I’ve never played any of the dark souls or demon souls games, but this game is one of my most wanted after seeing some trailers. Greatness Awaits indeed.

Sony WWS should have moved THE ORDER 1886, that’s the game releasing ahead of schedule.

Is there any chance of a Demons Souls/Dark Souls HD release on PS4? I really need this.

Reaper527_ said:

November 12th, 7:15 am

if it results in a better game, a one month delay is no big deal.

Neil said:

November 12th, 7:23 am

That’s okay. The Order comes out Feb anyway so it never made sense.

ivancard said:

Disappointing as Driveclub PS+ Edition

Frozen_star10 said:

November 12th, 7:47 am

It’s okay. After some big games have problems on Day 1. I rather wait than get a rush game with errors. Moreover, early 2015 maybe too crowd with many games release. So I need more time to finish all of them.

Don’t have a ps4 yet, but this is the only sony exclusive that catches my attention. Sony should take this time and ask From Software if they interested in making a Demon Soul for vita. “The Monumental awaits thee above”.

cmdluke said:

This makes me super happy. Now I don’t have to split my time between this and the order. I can blow through the order’s story, then take my time with bloodborne.

Elementalstorm23 said:

November 12th, 8:20 am

I have no issues with this what so ever. Considering most games as of late are being rushed out with problems. I would rather it be held to make sure we get the best experience possible. I got a chance to play last month in NH at the Playstation event and what I played was amazing so waiting only a few weeks won’t kill me. Either way it’s still a day one buy for me and make sure to thank all the devs for the awesome work they are doing!

    We are gratified to hear you enjoyed your brief early experience with Bloodborne. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Hey devs, you gotta do what you gotta do. If you need more time to make the best game possible, take it. The real fans will understand.

Welmosca said:

November 12th, 9:03 am

Yeah better take your time and deliver a 100% product than rushing it and deliver it below 100%.

Every sane person knows that.

Phillipo992 said:

November 12th, 9:10 am

This is actually good news! Now we will have time to finish The Witcher 3 before 24th.

jvasq said:

November 12th, 9:21 am

That’s fine with me. I’ve never disliked FromSofts games and if you need more time then take it. I will be buying it regardless

KongWen said:

November 12th, 9:43 am

This is great news! After the Assassin’s Creed: Unity disaster, I want From & Sony to have as much time as they need to deliver a good quality product. I can’t wait to play Bloodborne, but I want it to be fully cook when it comes out.

Ethereal said:

November 12th, 9:48 am

Take your time. With rushed releases lately I would rather the dev team take the time to do it right. One month is nothing considering all that is coming out in early 2015. Keep up the amazing work!

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We are working hard to make sure you are happy with the final product.

I still have no know idea how the game is suppose to be played and what’s it all about.

JimmyChaos said:

November 12th, 10:53 am

They should make it free for PS+ on that month as compensation…. LOL

tusunami said:

November 12th, 10:55 am

Suprised that this game was getting pushed back based off the beta but this gives more time to get the game right.

Rainwater said:

November 12th, 11:21 am

Looking forward to it! Ended up getting a PS4 unexpectedly recently (due to seeing a deal I couldn’t pass by), and this was the first game I was excited to remember was coming out!

joinsideke said:

November 12th, 11:22 am


I too am totally ok with this delay, and am happy to see the majority of posts in favor of delivering a product of From Software’s expected quality.

Rezolution77 said:

November 12th, 11:39 am

Yes ummmm,

Not the correct post, but currently no replies as to when, (if at all) Sacred Citadel will be discounted since the PS Update has it advertised?

Rezolution77 said:

November 12th, 11:43 am

Going to continue to spam this.

So glad I have not bought a PS4 yet. Even my Vita doesn’t get this ignored.

Rezolution77 said:

November 12th, 11:44 am

My warranty does not have to be almost void, by the time I would actually get to play it.
