Bluepoint Games' next project is another remake

The site asked if Bluepoint might make an original game of its own, and Thrush responded by confirming that's not going to happen-not yet.

The Shadow of the Colossus remake for the PlayStation 4 was released earlier this year, and it instantly silenced critics.

"This project [Shadow of the Colossus] 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".

Bluepoint Games has been known as one of, if not the, best developer studio for porting games to other consoles for nearly a decade now, but you might say that they've taken everything to another level with Shadow of the Colossus' PlayStation 4 remake. "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". Bluepoint have gained a reputation as the "masters of the remaster", having produced well-received revamps of the first three Metal Gear Solid Games, the Uncharted series, and Gravity Rush, before tackling Shadow of the Colossus.

While Bluepoint would not share any additional information about its next project, Thrush teased, "We're really excited about our next project and we think you will be too when you find out what it is". One of most commonly thrown around games on the Internet since the above news broke has been the cult-classic, Demon's Souls.

Want to take a guess at what Bluepoint is working on? Not only that most of the fans are also wondering what it could also possibly be that all of the sequels of the title Dark Souls might get a remake. One of the clues is that Sony shut down the game's servers shortly after its ninth anniversary without any explanation. Or, it's possible the trademark has something to do with a (said while whispering) PlayStation 4 remake. However, some people believe that they have already identified the next game that will be receiving the remake treatment from Bluepoint.

Thrush also answered Eurogamer's question of whether the company's next project is going to have "A Bluepoint Game" tag on the box down the line, aka original, with an enticing "could". Specifically, they're working on another remake that's bigger in scope than Shadow of the Colossus.
