If you play a lot of games and you haven’t heard of Bluepoint Games by now, you probably live under a rock. The studio excels in what it does, and that is taking popular titles from previous console generations and giving them the remaster treatment that they deserve on better hardware. Based on the employment listing on the studio’s website, the developer is now hard at work on bringing yet another classic from the previous generation to current-gen consoles.
The studio is currently hiring a senior technical artist, an environment artist, and a character artist to join its team and work on their future projects. The employment listing states the following:
We are passionately at work bringing another classic to current game systems, growing our capabilities as a team and raising the bar for what fans anticipate from us.
As to what this title may be, this generation has already seen plenty of remasters and the list of PS3/Xbox 360 titles currently in demand on the PS4 and Xbox One is gradually shrinking. If we were to make a guess, it could end up being Dark Souls, as From Software fans have been looking forward to seeing it get the remaster treatment that Bluepoint is now so well-known for.
The studio’s previous work includes ICO & Shadow of the Colossus, Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, God of War Collection, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Flower, and more recently, Gravity Rush Remastered.
We’ll keep you posted on any further information regarding Bluepoint Games’ new project. In the meantime, let us know what classic you think the studio is working to remaster in the comments below.
