Forums - Sony Discussion - Rumor- Sony looking to buy Bluepoint Games

https://www.resetera.com/threads/rumor-sony-to-acquire-bluepoint-games-very-soon.324523/

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.

Honestly, though this leaker seems a bit sketchy with his sources not being vetted by Era's mods, it wouldn't surprise me at all if this was true. Bluepoint has now done 4 games in a row for Sony, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Gravity Rush Remastered, Shadow of the Colossus remake, and Demon's Souls remake, and early preorders for Demon's Souls remake are looking very strong. It would make perfect sense for Sony to formalize the relationship by fully acquiring Bluepoint.



Well they are a solid remaster studio. They can spend generations remastering old gems



This kind of acquisition makes sense as the studio have a long history with Sony, know their IP's and style and deliver with the games. And they don't currently make games for other platforms so would therefore not disadvantage anyone - it would make sense to bring the brilliant team into Playstation Studios.Now get them to make a Resistance: Fall of Man Remaster

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. 



Does this count as a positive Sony thread?

Bluepoint would be a good acquisition for Sony considering how many successful games they've made for them.



It would burst my dream of Nintendo buying Bluepoint, and letting Bluepoint remaster NES/SNES/N64/GC/Wii libraries.... so many great titles that Bluepoint could modernize.

That's one heck of a dream, considering Bluepoint hasn't worked on a single Nintendo game yet. Almost all of the games they've done over the years were for Sony, with the exceptions being some work on the MGS Collection for Xbox 360 and the Titanfall 360 port. 



This is one of those that makes sense. They basically only work with Sony anyway and are not a large publisher to just open a checkbook on. It's just taking an existing handshake deal of a partner and making it a sure thing.
