Bluepoint Games is working on a remaster or remake of some kind that it says will please fans.
Bluepoint Games, the studio mostly known for making well-received remasters of Sony games, is working on a new, unannounced project. Bluepoint previously remastered all three Uncharted games on PS4 with The Nathan Drake Collection, as well as Gravity Rush Remastered.
The studio also brought the classic PS2 games Ico, and Shadow of the Colossus to PS3. Now, it appears it’s hiring for a new, unannounced project. The info comes from a the the LinkedIn profile of technical director Peter Dalton (via Reddit), where you can clearly see him describing the project as something that will “please the masses.”
There’s also this job listing for a senior general engineer at the same studio that confirms the project is a remake of a classic game for current-gen consoles.
It’s important to note that neither listing mention Sony as the client here, though it would make sense given how many projects the two worked on together. The most obvious example that comes to mind is Demon’s Souls, the PS3 From Software classic fans have been asking Sony to remaster for years.
From Software itself said it won’t revisit it, but that doesn’t mean other studios cannot. The Demon’s Souls IP belongs to Sony, so the company has the power to greenlight a remake or remaster of this classic RPG.
Of course, there’s always the chance this is a remaster of a different game, and may not even be with Sony. We’ll just have to wait and see.
