Following the addition of Bluepoint Games into the PlayStation Studios family, Sony has officially announced that the Demon’s Souls Remake on the PlayStation 5 from developers Bluepoint Games has sold over 1.4 million copies worldwide.
President of Bluepoint Games, Marcos Thrush, explains that the team now wants to work on original content moving forward. It is still unknown if this means an entirely new IP or a sequel to an already existing one. Thrush further states that “the transition from remasters to remakes was to test ourselves and push ourselves harder for the next step.” The team over at Bluepoint Games has grown from about 15 people since their work on God of War Collection to 95 people during the Demon’s Souls Remake.
It’s exhilarating to see Bluepoint create something original of their own. They have had a swift turnaround on all its games, partially because they are handed the original game before remastering or remaking it.
Head of PlayStation Studios, Hermen Hulst, explained that they acquired Bluepoint Games for the long run and that it’s about making quality games that are sustainable for the developers. The recent acquisition essentially boils down to enhancing the already established partnership between PlayStation Studios and Bluepoint Games so that the small studio can continue producing the highest quality work.
