It’s now official: Bluepoint Games are the newest member of the PlayStation Studios family, the companies have announced.

Cementing the news via a post on the PlayStation Blog, head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst formally announced the move. The studio’s president Marco Thrush also offered up a statement. “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.”

It was first assumed Bluepoint Games would be joining in June after an official PlayStation Japan account accidentally tweeted the wrong logo. They were supposed to be welcoming Returnal developer Housemarque to the fold, and accidentally tweeted out Bluepoint Games’ logo instead. Whoopsie.

Regardless, it seems the ink has now dried on the deal and Bluepoint are officially a member of PlayStation Studios. There’s also a short video from both parties, where they say they’re not ready to reveal their next project yet, but are excited for the future. Hopefully, we’ll hear more soon.

Bluepoint Games have done a lot of remake work on the PlayStation over the years. They worked on Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on 2015 followed by a Shadow of the Colossus remake in 2018. Their most recent project was the PlayStation 5 remake of Demon’s Souls, which was very good indeed.
