Sony Interactive Entertainment Acquires Bluepoint Games
Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently acquired yet another studio - Bluepoint Games - the developers of the PS4 remake of Shadow of the Colossus and the PS5 remake of Demon's Souls.
Instead of remakes, the studio aims to work on original content in the future, Bluepoint President Marco Thrush told IGN. However, Thrush didn't reveal any detail about the "original content" that the studio is working on.
"Our next project, we're working on original content right now. We can't talk about what that is, but that's the next step in the evolution for us," said Thrush. He explained how the growth of the studio from 15 employees to a team of 95 members, leads to the decision.
"We have that original game development mindset in our hearts, and that's what we're now ready, finally ready with the support of Sony to push forward and show what we can do, and show what PlayStation can do," he added.
While Bluepoint and PlayStation have been working together for years, the two have only made this decision as both want to make the working relationship "as beneficial to both sides as possible to let the studio produce its best work". In a PlayStation blog post, Thrush wrote, "PlayStation has such an iconic gaming catalog and for us there’s been nothing better than to bring some of gaming’s masterpieces to new players."
