Shadow Of The Colossus Remake Dev Confirms New Project Is Another Remaster
Bluepoint Games, the Austin, Texas-based developer behind high-profile remake projects such as Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, The God of War Collection, and more recently the Shadow of the Colossus remaster, has teased its next project. As you might have guessed, it’s going to be another remake. Bluepoint president and co-owner Marco Thrush confirmed this in an interview with Eurogamer. 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.
“Well, we may however we’re doing one other remake,” Thrush stated. “Shadow of the Colossus served us as an amazing level of rising the artwork crew to the purpose the place we are able to tackle a full AAA recreation main scope of artwork content material. So now our subsequent step is, let’s enhance the artwork pipeline, let’s enhance the engine, let’s enhance workflow for artists, let’s develop on the artwork facet some extra to deal with our subsequent mission as a result of it is a bit larger. And our subsequent focus is, all proper, let’s work on design and add new stuff to get to the following remake, as a result of now that may be our sole focus of constructing certain that is the place we put the time and all people else, they’re already at a degree the place we are able to carry out.”
Predictably, fans of the developer have already taken to social media to speculate on what Bluepoint Games might be working on next. A popular suggestion is a Demon’s Souls remake. Calls for a Demon’s Souls remake have only grown ever since it was announced that a Dark Souls remaster is arriving this year.
The mention of “current-gen game systems” would suggest that this particular classic game remake is multi-platform. But Sony still owns the rights to the Demon’s Souls IP, and it is highly unlikely that a remake of that game would ever release on a non-Sony console.
Bluepoint has greater than 10 open positions posted on its web site. The studio was based in 2006 by individuals who labored on Metroid Prime.
Remakes are enticing to publishers as a result of they oftentimes have a decrease improvement value relative to brand-new video games. As such, after they succeed, than will be profitable. For instance, Activision’s Crash Bandicoot remaster, The N. Sane Trilogy, was the best-selling PS4 remaster mission in historical past. It’s now coming to PC and Xbox One later this yr.
