Game director Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed that Bloodborne would not have been able to perform on previous generation consoles, meaning that the game would only be possible on the PS4 due to From Software's and Sony's current exclusivity partnership.
"I [have] always wanted to make a game set in the Victorian era, but to make it look good - with all of the clothing, the architecture and things - required a console more powerful than the ones that were around. The arrival of the PS4 finally gave us that," Miyazaki revealed in a new interview with PlayStation LifeStyle.
Miyazaki went on to explain that, "Bloodborne isn't a game that could have been cross-generation, it was only possible on PS4."
To clear up any forthcoming confusion, Miyazaki did forget to mention that the game could run on the Xbox One - it could, but Bloodborne will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 so it makes sense for him to specifically mention Sony and the PS4, instead of 'new gen consoles' when asked about From Software's decision to stick to just the PlayStation 4 for release.
For those unaware, Bloodborne will a game with similar elements to Demon Souls and Dark Souls, however the title will be slightly more forgiving than previous franchises by From Software.
Bloodborne will be released on 6th of February next year as a brand new PlayStation exclusive. Recent gameplay from TGS 2014 revealed a couple of new classes.
