PlayStation has announced that they have acquired Bluepoint games (for real this time). Bluepoint are the developers behind Shadow of the Colossus remake, Demon’s Souls remake and the Nathan Drake Collection.
Whilst Bluepoint hasn’t created much in the way of original games, they’ve more than proven themselves as a developer that can define console-defining visuals and gameplay for some of the biggest franchises.
Marco Thrush, President of Bluepoint Games had the below to say:
“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!”
