PlayStation Officially Acquires Bluepoint Games, Next Game Planned to Be an Original, Not a Remake

From IGN: "Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced yet another studio acquisition - Bluepoint Games, the developers of the Shadow of the Colossus remake on PS4, and, most recently, the PS5 remake of Demon's Souls.

Bluepoint and PlayStation have worked closely together for years, but the news comes after the studio's latest successful release, as Sony confirmed Demon's Souls has sold more than 1.4 million copies since release. IGN spoke with PlayStation Studios Head Hermen Hulst and Bluepoint President Marco Thrush to learn more about the acquisition, PlayStation's overall studio strategy, and about how, thoughBluepoint is steeped in PlayStation remaster and remake expertise, it wants to explore original ideas."

I bet it gets released before ES6...

I bet elder scrolls 5 releases again after this current re-release that's about to happen before elder scrolls 6 releases.

TheDoomedGuy119d ago

I'm think 1-3 more releases of elders 5 before 6 comes out.

Insomniac is gonna release 10 more games before they have a release date for TES6 lmao.

I might finally finish the main quest in Skyrim before ES6 releases

Same here. I didn't care for getting my thume on.

That is not surprising with Bethesda shipping Starfield in 2022.

I know Bethesda has multiple teams, but to top ES5 Skyrim they have to do something massive. I don't expect ES6 until at least 2024.

We are seeing some trends emerging. AAA games that are big and built from the ground up new are taking 4-6 years to develop. Sequels taking advantage of existing engines are taking 2-3 years to develop.

It wouldn't take much to top ES5, the modders are the ones that put in the work. They could remaster Marrowind and it would be infinitely better than the RIM.

A great acquisition welcome to the family it took long enough

alb1899119d ago

I think it is an interesting move.

Time will tell. But I applaud Sony for taking risks. One of the reasons why I like them

CaptainHenry916119d ago (Edited 119d ago )

That's going to depend on the game they make and how it reviews. It's always a risk with a new IP. Guerilla Game's took risks with Horizon Zero Dawn and they didn't know it was going to be successful
