Bluepoint’s sublime Shadow of the Colossus remake is one of the finest games you can play on the PlayStation 4, but with its next project, the Austin-based outfit is looking to push itself even further. Speaking as part of a GDC presentation, the studio shed a little more light on what it’s up to, describing its new project as a “re-envisioning”.
“For Shadow of the Colossus we don't call it a remaster, we coin it a remake due to the complexity of the project,” technical director Peter Dalton told an audience of developers. “And moving forward to our next project, we call it a re-envisioning given that it goes well beyond what we thought was possible on Shadow of the Colossus.”
This tallies with comments that the developer has made in the past, when it said that its next project will be much bigger. Many still believe that it’s working on resurrecting Demon’s Souls for the PlayStation 4, although it’s important to note that Bluepoint is an independent studio, and may not necessarily be partnering with Sony again.
Any thoughts on what this could possibly be? We know that it’s been recruiting character artists with armour and weapon asset experience, but that doesn’t really give us a lot to go on, does it?
