A few months ago we reported that Sony had purchased the Finnish gaming studio Housemarque, the makers of Returnal. In the mix and confusion of all this Sony posted a Tweet saying that Bluepoint Games had become a part of Playstation Studios as well. However, this tweet has since been deleted since at the time this wasn’t completely true. Although it did give us a clue as to what Sony was planning next.
So Sony’s big announcement yesterday, about purchasing Bluepoint Games, comes to no one’s surprise.
Thus the developers of Shadow of the Colossus, Demon’s Souls, and Metal Gear Solid HD Collection are officially a part of Playstation Studios. And seeing as all of those games have been Playstation exclusive since 2015 the acquisition feels appropriate.
We are looking forward to seeing what a Sony-led Bluepoint comes up with in the future. Are we going to see some original projects or a continuation of the remakes that they’ve handled so well in the past? What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.
