Well, if nothing else, VR may one day be remembered as the platform used to tease Bloodborne 2.
Fans think that an easter egg found in From Software’s new PSVR exclusive game, Deracine, is, in fact, a hint about a possible sequel to its other PlayStation-published series, Bloodborne.
A doll next to Rozsa’s bed early on in the game can be seen doing the ‘Make Contact’ gesture that players can perform in the action RPG. Pick it up and hit the description button and you’ll get a paragraph that reads:
“A doll of the stone girl Fiona, who appears in the unfinished tale. When a person has a bad dream, Fiona appears and helps them flee.”
Fiona might not be a name we’re familiar with (though, notably, the NPC character used to level up in Bloodborne was a nameless female doll), but the mention of an ‘unfinished tale’ might suggest that Bloodborne 2 is on the way. From Software currently has Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice in the works, but it’s more than possible that a sequel to its PS4 hit is also on the way.
If true, it’s a pretty cool way to hint at a sequel, though we say Deracine itself is very much worth playing in its own right.
That said, we highly doubt any such sequel would offer VR support, though From producer Atsuo Yoshimura did once say he’d like to see another of the developer’s series, Dark Souls, come to VR. We can but keep dreaming for now.
