Sony has officially acquired Bluepoint Games, the studio behind last year’s Demon’s Souls remake and other remasters/ ports like Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, the Vita version of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and the PS4 versions of Shadow of the Colossus and Gravity Rush.
From a press release regarding the acquisition, Jim Ryan, President & CEO, Sony Interactive Entertainment said, “Bluepoint Games has been an incredible partner to work with over the years, and the craftmanship they’ve demonstrated on past projects is impeccable. The addition of Bluepoint to PlayStation Studios further demonstrates our continued focus on investing in and fostering creative teams we’re confident will deliver world-class gaming experiences for our fans.”
“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!”
This is the latest acquisition of a games studio in a string of them, following Sony’s acquisition of Returnal developer Housemarque and Persistence developer Firesprite, Oxenfree developer Night School Studio being purchased by Netflix, and Microsoft’s landmark purchase of Bethesda.
