Bluepoint Studios is already working on another remake. The news was confirmed by Marco Thrush, co-owner and President of the studio, in an interview with Digital Foundry.
Thr recent remake of Shadow of the Colossus released to unanimous critical and player acclaim and set a high standard on what a proper remake should be like when translating older games to the current generation. Last month the studio wasn’t looking to hire staff for their next project.
“Well, we could but we’re doing another remake,” Thrush confirmed. “This project served us as a great point of growing the art team to the 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.”
Not only has their latest project released to acclaim it also sold well for a game based on a 13-year old property. Thrush is mum on exactly what his studio is working on, it could very well be Ico, a spiritual sequel to Shadow of the Colossus.
