Rumors suggested Bluepoint Games was working on a Metal Gear Solid remake, but the studio is working on original content following its buyout by Sony.
After accidentally confirming an acquisition under the PlayStation Studios umbrella a few months ago, Sony has officially brought Bluepoint Games into the fold. Bluepoint has previously been responsible for such exclusive remakes like Shadow of the Colossus and Demon’s Souls, and has worked closely with Sony throughout its history, putting its mark on other beloved PlayStation IP like Uncharted and God of War in the form of remasters and ports. With this acquisition, though, Bluepoint appears poised to expand its horizons, which bodes ill for those hoping for a Metal Gear Solid remake.
Over the last 15 years or so, Bluepoint Games has been steadily building a reputation as masters of remakes. The studio successfully ported, remastered, and remade a number of games, with the most recent two – Shadow of the Colossus and Demon’s Souls – releasing to widespread acclaim. Late last year, rumors began swirling that Bluepoint would be tackling a Metal Gear Solid remake following the release of Demon’s Souls. Though nothing more than hearsay, the rumors at least seemed plausible. Bluepoint appeared to have been taking on increasingly ambitious projects, and taking a stab at the beloved 1998 PlayStation title looked like it could be a logical next step.
