Bluepoint’s next project is (once again) a remake that is larger in scope in comparison to the studio’s last title, Shadow of the Colossus on PlayStation 4. I shed my thoughts on the news in the latest PlayStation Enthusiast video. What game or series would you like to see Bluepoint take on next?
Original story: Bluepoint Games, with a deep track record for remasters spanning Uncharted, Gravity Rush, God of War, and recently Shadow of the Colossus, is already at work on another remake. President Marco Thrush recently revealed this information in an interview with Digital Foundry. Fresh off of the success of the stunning Shadow of the Colossus remake, Bluepoint’s team is growing in numbers and experience, and is now hoping to continue honing the team that made the masterful display that is the Shadow of the Colossus remake. As such, Thrush is describing the studio’s next remake as something that will fall within a much wider scope than previous remakes. When questioned by Digital Foundry, Thrush stated the following:
This project served us as a great point of growing the art team to the point where we can take on a full triple-A game major scope of art content. So now our next step is, let’s improve the art pipeline, let’s improve the engine, let’s improve workflow for artists, let’s grow on the art side some more to handle our next project because it’s a bit bigger. And our next focus is, all right, let’s work on design and add new stuff to get to the next remake, because now that can be our sole focus of making sure that’s where we put the time and everybody else, they’re already at a level where we can perform.
Upon further questioning, Thrush said, “We’re really excited about our next project and we think you will be too when you find out what it is.” Whatever they have planned, Bluepoint’s track record for remasters has not disappointed. Add to the fact that Bluepoint is planning to achieve a larger scope for this project, and there are many reasons to be excited.
