Sony’s movie boss says he expects more games company buyouts

There were also rumors about Bluepoint I believe.

I think Bluepoint must have backed out at the last minute from that deal but I would be glad to be proven wrong.

Darkborn24d ago

No, I think bluepoint will be announced alongside another remake. I don't see Sony letting them say no. They see a bunch of companies being bought out. Housemarque and nixxes had multiple other offers from "the usual suspects" so I'm sure bluepoint does too.

I'm sure blue point games accusation is already in the works. No reason for them to back out considering how most of their current games have been Ps exclusive.

Sony should continue buying small independent studio and continue to grow them as a AAA studio. Independent studio are usually the creative ones. We need more creative ideas in the gaming industry.
