The Remake Masters, Bluepoint Games, have been Acquired by Sony PlayStation

Bluepoint Games is now part of PlayStation Studios

Some of today’s most exciting game releases are remakes of classics, be it Resident Evil 2, Crash Bandicoot, Demon Souls, Final Fantasy 7 or others. Recreating classic games to modern audiences is a surefire way to garner attention, and sales have proven the remakes, and remasters are popular amongst gamers. 

Bluepoint Games is a studio that has mastered the art of remaking classic titles. Bluepoint’s latest hit is their remake of From Software’s Demon Souls, but Bluepoint is a studio that has its origins extend back to 2006. Popular Bluepoint remakes/remasters include Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, the PlayStation 4 Remake of Shadow of the Colossus (and the original’s PS3 remaster), and the PS3/PS Vita’s God of War Collection. 

It has long been rumoured that Sony was working to acquire Bluepoint Games. Sony has a long history with the studio, and it would be in Sony’s best interest to ensure that Bluepoint isn’t acquired by one of its competitors, namely Microsoft. With Bluepoint Bluepoint under its control, Sony now has the ability to create high-quality remakes of many of its most popular titles. Beyond that, Bluepoint’s expertise could be a useful asset to other PlayStation Studios developers. 
Below is what PlayStations’s Herman Hulst had to say about the acquisition; 

    Today I’m very excited to announce that PlayStation Studios has grown again with the addition of long-time partner Bluepoint Games! From the exceptional PS5 remake of Demon’s Souls to the critically acclaimed PS4 remake of Shadow of the Colossus and remasters of fan favorites like Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Bluepoint has built a name for itself by creating some of the highest-quality remasters and remakes in the industry.  

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.
