A leaker over on ResetEra claims to have 2 separate sources who told him that Sony plans to acquire Bluepoint Games. Supposedly Sony has been very pleased with the work Bluepoint has done for Sony as a 2nd party studio over the years, working on God of War Collection, The Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale Vita Port, Flower PS4 and Vita ports, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Gravity Rush Remastered, Shadow of the Colossus remake, and Demon's Souls remake. Meanwhile he says that Bluepoint wants to be acquired because they don't want to be known as just a remake studio and want a shot at an original IP. He says that the acquisition deal is being finalized and will be announced no later than February 28th.

Take this leak with a grain of salt because neither of the leakers 2 sources were verified by Era's mods.

Damn that's a real positive for Playstation. Getting a remaster studio would be great to maybe get those PS2 mascot games, ie) Jake and Daxter and maybe Sly. Would fall in line with their rhetoric of wanting to grow more organically (establish a business relationship and then purchase). 

Yeah, while it does sound like they want to be acquired so that they can try their hand at an original IP, I'm sure they will still work on some remasters for Sony. I can think of several prime candidates for remastering and remakes. I personally would love to see an Uncharted 1 remake on PS5.
