A new Bloodborne 2 leak points to FromSoftware working on a PS5-exclusive Bloodborne spiritual successor instead of an outright Bloodborne sequel.
The leak says the Bloodborne 2 game is actually called Velvet Veil and will feature a significant boost in graphics similar to the change between Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3.
The leak’s credibility is another matter, though.
Buckle up folks, ‘cause it’s a bit of a bumpy ride.
The original leaker is (possibly) Ruancarlo Silva, who claims to have a source in FromSoftware.
This source reportedly provided them both information on Velvet Veil and, in 2017, on a Dark Souls remake that might have been Demon’s Souls for PS5 and on Elden Ring before anything about it was public knowledge.
There’s a problem, though.

Bloodborne 2 Could be Called Velvet Veil, New Leak Claims
Silva blocked out Reddit usernames for both the message sender and receiver and provided no indication what the thread title or date was, so there’s no verifying who was speaking.
However, another Reddit user, e_0, said the thread belonged to them and they have no Velvet Veil information at all.
The Velvet Veil leak Silva posted comes from a 4Chan thread, as GamesRadar reported.
e_0 said it doesn’t mean Velvet Veil isn’t in production, but they have no information on it - or no information they can share - at the moment.
McDonald first said the leak came from a “no-name website trying to get traffic” and didn’t reference any 4chan or Reddit leaks, which could explain the deletion.
At the end of all this, what we’re left with is… potentially not much, admittedly.
However, no one familiar with FromSoftware has gone on record to definitively say Velvet Veil is a myth.
