From Software has hidden a couple of Easter eggs within Deracine that may be hinting at a possible sequel to Bloodborne.
Deracine, From Software’s PS VR exclusive, launched this week. In this adventure, players get to explore an isolated boarding school.
Within the game, players have discovered a few clear references to Bloodborne, and what could be a hint about Bloodborne 2. As documented by Amazing Komaru (via Fextralife), Deracine has a doll players can interact with.
Outside of looking a bit similar to the Bloodborne character, the doll performs the Make Contact gesture, which Bloodborne players will be very familiar with.
But here’s where it gets interesting; the description for this Fiona Doll reads, “A doll of the stone girl Fiona who appears in the unfinished tale. When a person has a bad dream, Fiona appears and helps them flee.”
This particular line about an “unfinished tale” is what has people thinking it’s a reference to Bloodborne 2, since one would assume the unfinished tale in this instance is the story of Bloodborne.
A statue of what the game refers to as a Seafaring Sage has a design that’s clearly inspired by Bloodborne’s Lovercraftian art. Its description reads, “A statue of a seafaring sage that appears in an unfinished tale. It is said to appear in bad dreams, to watch over those who attempt to leave.”
And if that isn’t enough, ResetEra forum members found more tidbits, such as a book called Blood & Bones flaunting the Bloodborne font.
Of course, this is far from a confirmation that Bloodborne 2 is in development, but the hints about the unfinished story are certainly interesting.
