Bluepoint's Next Project Even More Ambitious Than Shadow of the Colossus Remake

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
Bluepoint Games is building up a great reputation for bringing older games kicking and screaming into the modern era. Their most recent title was the Shadow of the Colossus (SotC) remaster for PlayStation 4, although they're also the studio responsible for Gravity Rush Remastered and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. During a presentation at last month's Game Developers Conference, which has only just been made public, Bluepoint's technical director Peter Dalton revealed the studio is working on a new project that's even more ambitious than the SotC remaster.

Before he went into detail on the technical aspect of SotC remaster, Dalton said:

The depth at which we remaster projects has grown exponentially. Starting with the God Of War Collection, which involved texture cleanup, to the Uncharted Collection which involved all aspects of the game being modified. In fact for Shadow we don’t call it a remaster, we coin it a remake given the complexity of the project. And moving forward to our next project, we coin it a re-envisioning given that it goes well beyond what we even thought possible on Shadow.
Dalton didn't go into any more detail on what the next project would be, simply stating that "Bluepoint would make me walk home, all the way to Texas, just to shoot me if I screwed this up". However, many people believe their next project will be to bring Demon's Souls onto PlayStation 4. It is worth mentioning, though, that Bluepoint has also done projects for other platforms, such as Titanfall for the Xbox 360, and their next project may not be exclusive to Sony's consoles. What do you think?
