Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that they’ve acquired Austin developer Bluepoint Games. The acquisition is finally official as PlayStation’s Japanese Twitter account accidentally leaked an image a few months back.
Bluepoint Games built a great reputation by creating stellar Remasters/Remakes over the years. They worked on the PS5 remake of Demon’s Souls to the critically acclaimed PS4 remake of Shadow of the Colossus. They also worked on Gravity Rush Remastered, Nathan Drake collection and iconic franchises like Metal Gear Solid.
“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!”
– Marco Thrush, President, Bluepoint Games
We at remote play are extremely exciting with this merger and look forward to their next project.
