Demons Souls: is the remake coming to PS4 after all?

Demons Souls

So far, the remake of Demon's Souls is available exclusively for the PS5. The new edition of Bluepoint was published together with the launch of the next-gen console. Now the reference to a possible PS4 version of the remake has been discovered in the PlayStation database. The entry could not be found there before the PS5 release.

However, this is not yet a confirmation for a conversion to PS4. Such an entry can have several meanings, as the discoverers of the database entry tell on their Twitter profile. So it could be a discontinued version of Demon's Souls (buy now). However, it may also be a test version of the new edition, which is currently only intended for developers. A release of Demon's Souls for PS4 should please many fans who may not have been able to get hold of a PS5 so far.

Few games are available exclusively on PS5 so far. In addition to Demon's Souls, only Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Destruction AllStars and Astro's Playroom are currently tied to the next-gen console. Titles like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure or upcoming highlights like Horizon Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7 or the successor to God of War are or will all be available on PS4. Demon's Souls was originally released for PS3 by From Software in 2009. From Software is currently working on Elden Ring, which should go on sale as early as January 2022. The remake, on the other hand, comes from Bluepoint Games, who say they are already working on a new project.

Demon's Souls may be coming to the PS4 according to a potential PlayStation database leak. 

The FromSoftware game, which was recently remade for the PS5, has reportedly got a PS4 version in the PlayStation database according to @PlaystationSize - an account that shares file sizes of upcoming PlayStation games, as well as other news and leaks. 

The Tweet sharing the news stated: “YES! Demon's Souls has a PS4 version in the database!” However before fans of the Souls Series get too excited, this may not mean too much. As the Twitter account also said: “This version [could] be cancelled, [could] be released soon or [could] be only a small test version for developers.” So it’s best as with all leaks to take this with a grain of salt. 

Another Twitter user replied to the original tweet pointing out that Demon’s Souls does actually have a content ID for the PS4 in the system, however this is for a digital artbook of the game that can be viewed on the PS4. @PlaystationSize has since cleared this up however replying to said tweet adding that this code is different to the artbook one. 

This Tweet was also shared in both the PS5 subreddit and the GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit and received mixed reactions, with those not able to secure a PS5 yet happy that they’ll be able to play Demon's Souls on their PS4 and others who are disappointed at the fact Sony keeps re-releasing current-gen games onto previous-gen consoles. 

If true, this wouldn’t be the first time that Sony has released a scaled-down version of a PS5 exclusive game onto the PS4. The video game company also did the same with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Sackboy: The Big Adventure, however, both games had to receive a few downgrades to be playable on the now previous-gen console, including taking hits to its resolution, load times, and level of detailing on the PS4.

The Souls Series started with the original Demon’s Souls, released in 2009 on the PS3, and has since been remastered for the PS5. The rest of the Souls 'series' is made up of the Dark Souls trilogy, with Bloodborne often bundled into discussions of From Software's hard-as-nails catalogue.
