After plenty of rumors and much speculation, it was revealed today that yes, there is a Demon's Souls remake in the works. It's launching on the PlayStation 5.
We saw a cinematic reveal trailer for the Demon's Souls remake at Sony's PlayStation 5 games reveal event earlier today, which you can check out for yourself just below. There wasn't any actual gameplay present in the trailer, but it was more a cinematic tour around the kindom of Boletaria. It certainly looks like a beautiful remake, and it definitely feels like the remake has been a long time coming, given all the rumors from developer Bluepoint Games.
If you're unaware of the history surrounding Demon's Souls, it was originally released for the PS3 all the way back in 2009. Progress on developing the game wasn't exactly going swimmingly at FromSoftware, until Armored Core designer Hidetaka Miyazaki took over the project.
Demon's Souls would go on to chiefly establish FromSoftware's reputation as a developer over the coming years. The game would earn notoriety for its incredibly hard difficulty, paving the way for Dark Souls, which many see as the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls, to release two years later in 2011.
As of right now, we don't actually have a firm release date for the Demon's Souls remake. There was a '2021' tagline in the trailer at any point, so we'll have to wait and see when it ends up releasing. When Bluepoint's remake does arrive though, it'll be launching for the PlayStation 5.
