Sony has finally acquired Bluepoint Games

Sony acquires Bluepoint Games

It finally happened after months of rumor, speculation, and even a leaked image of Sony acquiring Bluepoint Games. Announced at the start of the 2021 Tokyo Game Show, Sony announced it had completed the acquisition of its long-time partner, Bluepoint Games. 

Here’s what Bluepoint Games has to say about the acquisition. 

“We’re thrilled to have officially joined PlayStation Studios! 

Austin, Texas has been home base for Bluepoint from when we first founded the studio back in 2006 and we’re now a team of close to 70 super-talented creatives and growing. While the studio has certainly grown over the past 15 years, our cultural beliefs have remained the same- to always push the envelope and create the highest-quality games possible all while having fun doing it.  The focus on culture has been instrumental to our success and we’re excited that PlayStation Studios shares a similar culture and vision.

PlayStation has such an iconic gaming catalog and for us there’s been nothing better than to bring some of gaming’s masterpieces to new players. Becoming a part of PlayStation Studios, empowers our team to raise the quality-bar even further and create even more impactful experiences for the PlayStation community.

Thanks to everyone who’s supported us throughout the years – we can’t wait to bring you more amazing games in this next chapter for Bluepoint Games!”

– Marco Thrush, President, Bluepoint Games

Given that Bluepoint Games has worked on some of the most iconic games for PlayStation, such as Uncharted, Shadow of the Colossus, and more recently, Demon’s Souls Remake. It was a no-brainer that Sony would eventually scoop up the studio. This makes yet another acquisition on Sony’s part this year, including Housemarque, Nixxes, and recently, Firesprite Games.

To top it all off, the word is that Bluepoint Games has been working on an original game already. Not a remaster, not a remake, but an original game. So far, they’ve been quiet regarding what it could be. Hopefully, they’ll let us know about it sooner than later.
