It deserves it
With the tough-as-nails approach, cryptic story, and ethereal aesthetic, Souls games are a tough sell. But the quality of each game (and the talent of directorHidetaka Miyazaki) shines through, and Bloodborneis the latest game to reach the one million sold mark.
Sony has announced that through Blu-ray and digital sales, Bloodbornehas sold over one million units, a number that Sony bossShuhei Yoshida is particularly proud of. It’s interesting to note that although Sony did do a great job of advertising, it didn’t have an obnoxious hype-filled campaign leading up to launch — as I said, the buzz spoke for itself once the game was actually out.
For reference, Bandai Namco announced thatDark Souls IIsold 2.5 million across all platforms, so its last two projects can be considered successes. Where does From Software go from here? The studio could do Bloodborne 2. It could remake Dark Souls. It could also already be working on Dark Souls 3or another completely new project. Whatever it is, I hope the series continues.
