Shadow of the Colossus remastered studio Bluepoint Games recently talked about its great relationship with game company Sony studios and its future plans.
Bluepoint Games importance of remasters
Game studio president Marco Thrush
We are an independent studio. The hardware we develop for is determined by the publisher who signs us. The Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and Titanfall had Xbox 360 SKUs for this reason. Various Sony studios have been great partners, most recently JAPAN Studio. We have a great relationship with them and we will be happy to continue to work with them if they wish to.
The developers have been teasing a
mystery PS5 project that they have been working on. They did not reveal any
details, but Thrush said that it will no doubt become the achievement they are
most proud of.
Thrush stated that he believes in the
importance of high-quality remasters and remakes because a lot of great games
are restricted to hardware that ends up being replaced when new consoles are
introduced. This results to new players not able to experience the classics
unless they get remade.
The president made Shadow of the Colossus a prime example of a great remaster. He said that it is important to bring masterpieces of gaming’s history to new players.
