Just a few months ago, the official PlayStation Japan Twitter accidentally posted the announcement of Bluepoint Games’ acquisition. Now, it’s official. Hermen Hulst, the Head of PlayStation Studios, shared on PlayStation Blog that the studio behind the successful remake of Demon’s Souls on PS5, Shadow of the Colossus on PS4, and the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection remaster is now part of PlayStation Studios.
“Bluepoint has built a name for itself by creating some of the highest-quality remasters and remakes in the industry,” Hulst wrote. “With each of its projects, Bluepoint has raised the bar on console-defining visuals and gameplay, and the studio’s vast expertise in world building and character creation will be a huge plus for future PlayStation Studios properties.”
This is indeed one of the best acquisitions so far after Insomniac Games as Sony could already have plans of developing remakes of PlayStation classics such as The Legend of Dragoon or partnering up with Konami to develop a Metal Gear Solid remake.
Here’s what Marco Thrush, Bluepoint Games’ President:
“We’re thrilled to have officially joined PlayStation Studios!
Austin, Texas has been home base for Bluepoint from when we first founded the studio back in 2006 and we’re now a team of close to 70 super-talented creatives and growing. While the studio has certainly grown over the past 15 years, our cultural beliefs have remained the same- to always push the envelope and create the highest-quality games possible all while having fun doing it. The focus on culture has been instrumental to our success and we’re excited that PlayStation Studios shares a similar culture and vision.
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. Becoming a part of PlayStation Studios, empowers our team to raise the quality-bar even further and create even more impactful experiences for the PlayStation community.
Thanks to everyone who’s supported us throughout the years – we can’t wait to bring you more amazing games in this next chapter for Bluepoint Games!“
