You wait weeks for Sony to do… something, and then decide to drop (well, more like a leak) several megatons out of nowhere on a sunny Tuesday morning. Having already confirmed the acquisition of the Returnal Housemarque developer, it seems that the immediate plans of the Japanese giant do not stop there.
When the Housemarque news broke, PlayStation Japan somehow managed to upload the wrong image on Twitter. Rather than showing that Housemarque is now part of PlayStation Studios, the image highlights Bluepoint Games. The tweet was quickly removed and replaced.
This strongly suggests that another acquisition announcement is coming, and Sony will also hire remake specialists Bluepoint Games. And again, it’s a purchase that makes perfect sense – Bluepoint is the studio behind the fantastic revivals of Shadow of the Colossus (PS4) and Demon’s Souls (PS5).
So there you have it. If this is really happening, and it’s not just some kind of crazy bug, we’ll probably get a confirmation soon. We’ll update this article when that happens, or if we hear more about what’s going on.
