Bloodborne Pushed Back
From Software’s highly anticipated PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne has been pushed back from its February 2015 release date to the tail end of March 2015, as announced via the PlayStation Blog this morning.
From Software cite the reason for the delay as needing time “to deliver the best possible experience”. Information gleaned from the extremely limited Bloodborne Alpha last month and player feedback has been taken on board by From Software – the extra development time should allow the developer to fine tune the game and respond to the concerns and suggestions from players.
From Software also notes that new Bloodborne news will be revealed in December, again via the PlayStation Blog, as part of the on-going promotion for the title.
Look out for our hands-on of Bloodborne from the EGX demo – in short, I absolutely loved the gameplay and direction that From Software are taking with the new title, the spiritual but indirect sequel to the Souls games. Bloodborne is faster, a little more akin to Devil May Cry than the slower Souls series but still presents the relentlessly hard challenge that the Souls series delivers.
Bloodborne is the latest game to slip following what feels like months of high profile games being pushed back including Battlefield: Hardline and Assassin’s Creed: Unity – having said that, while disappointing for players, delays mean the developers are polishing their games and making the best possible product that they can, which is nothing but good news for gamers.
