Bluepoint Games, the conversion wizards behind the recent Shadow of the Colossus remake, is currently working on a new project. That’s not a surprise, but what is interesting is that it’s another remake, and according to Bluepoint’s co-owner, Marco Thrush, it’s a bigger project than Shadow of the Colossus.
Speaking to the people over at Digital Foundry, Thrush explained the studio’s expansion as it takes on more staff to help meet handle new projects.
“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.”
We could sit here and speculate what the next big remake is going to be from Bluepoint Games, but we’ve genuinely got no idea. We imagine it’s going to be another first-party Sony title, but it could just as easily be a third-party impressed by Bluepoint’s Uncharted and Shadow of the Colossus results.
