Bluepoint Games, Shadow Of The Colossus Remake Dev, Confirms A Remake Is Their Next Project
What could we be revisiting next?
Bluepoint Games has confirmed that the next project on their to do list is a new remake, and if their latest piece of work, the Shadow Of The Colossus remake, is anything to go by, it's going to be awesome.
Marco Thrush, Bluepoint's resident and co-owner had this to say in an interview after being asked if they might make an original game of its own:
"Well, we could but we're doing another remake. This project served us as a great point of growing the art team to the next point where we can take on a full triple A game major scope of art content. So now our next step is, let's improve the art pipeline, let's improve the engine, let's improve workflow for artists, let's grow on the art side some more to handle our next project because it's a bit bigger. And our next focus is, all right, let's work on design and add new stuff to get to the next remake, because now that can be our sole focus of making sure that's where we put the time and everybody else, they're already at a level where we can perform".
"With Shadow [Of The Colossus], the studio most definitely grew in both number of people and skill level - and so we continue to grow and expand and look at areas of weakness" said technical director, Peter Dalton. "One area that we've not explored very deeply is, 'What does our design prowess looks like? What is our ability to build something original and to expand it, rather than just upgrading something?' and so we look at those things and we are constantly trying to enhance and strengthen the studio to get to a point where, yeah, doing original development or whatever comes our way, we're fully capable of doing it".
Bluepoint didn't spill the beans on what exactly they will be working on, only that their next game will be a remake and that the scope of the project is bigger than its previous release.
"We're really excited about our next project and we think you will be too when you find out what it is" added Thrush.
