Dark Souls Creator Plays Down Bloodborne 2 Rumours, Explains Why Sekiro Is A Single-Player Game

Hidetaka Miyazaki, FromSoftware director and creator of the Souls series, has revealed a few interesting details regarding the possibility of Bloodborne 2 and the upcoming Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. 

In a comprehensive interview with Japanese outlet 4 Gamer, Miyazaki explained that the much-discussed Bloodborne references in Déraciné were merely references and, if the renowned industry prankster is to be believed, no indication of a sequel.

Please excuse the Google translations below:

4 Gamer:
What I was interested in playing is Easter egg of Bloodborne that appears. It is rumored that “It is a foreword of the sequel?” 

Miyazaki:
I’m sorry I called the speculation, but that is pure mischief. I, as well as several staffs, like the title Bloodborne, but it may have been overkill. It is one of reflection points.

Following that, the interview meandered on to Sekiro and its design.

Interestingly, Miyazaki explained that the game’s attempt to eschew traditional Souls tropes—including the multiplayer—came from the creator’s “sense of incompatibility with the phrase Soul-like.”

Sekiro’s single-player-focused design, then, came about as an attempt to distance the studio from its legacy as the developer of the Souls franchise. With that distancing came a game that looks to have positioned itself outside of the “limitations” of multiplayer.

The full interview also reveals that FromSoftware currently has two unannounced games in the works, as well as delving quite deeply into the design and story of Sekiro.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One March 22, 2019. For more, be sure to follow OnlySP on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
