Fromsoftware has announced that their highly anticipated title Bloodborne will be delayed. The release date isn’t much of a delay, but it is enough to be disappointed about. This news was taken from the official site and translated best that Google could do from Japanese.
“Japanese domestic release date of “Bloodborne”, I will inform you that I am allowed to change February 5, 2015 that it had been the guidance originally from (Thursday) March 26, 2015 (the tree).
In order to to work that can be enjoyed from the heart to our game fan, has decided to extend the development period for taking the time to the end of the adjustment.
There is a very humbled to everyone that I am looking forward to customers and released already received your reservation, but I hope a little longer wait for the launch of the “Bloodborne”.
To make Bloodborne even better, we’re announcing a slight delay to release date. We’re focusing on quality so please look forward to it.”
Clearly this is a poor translation and I apologize for this, but it is a quote directly from their website and word for word how Google felt it should be translated. This is sad news for me as someone who is anticipating the game.
What this means for the fans of “Souls” style gameplay for now is, that we will have to get by with replays of Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2. It also gives us a bit more time with Lords of The Fallen. The delay was a little over a month’s time.
I am scared now that with one delay there could be others. It seems that developers have a tendency to delay a project more than once if it gets an inital delay. Again fans of the style gameplay and newcomers that are looking forward to Bloodborne need to think positive, it’s for the greater good.
