Bluepoint Games Acquisition

Jeez, you wait weeks for Sony to do... something, and then it decides to drop (well, more like leak) several megatons out of the blue on a sunny Tuesday morning. Having already confirmed the acquisition of Returnal developer Housemarque, it would appear that the Japanese giant's immediate plans don't stop there.

When the Housemarque news broke, PlayStation Japan somehow managed to upload the wrong image on Twitter. Instead of showing that Housemarque is now part of PlayStation Studios, the image highlights Bluepoint Games. The tweet was quickly deleted and replaced.

This heavily suggests that another acquisition announcement is incoming, with remake specialists Bluepoint Games also being snapped up by Sony. And again, it's a buy that makes total sense — Bluepoint is the studio behind the fantastic Shadow of the Colossus (PS4) and Demon's Souls (PS5) revivals.

So there you have it. If this really is happening, and it's not just some kind of insane mistake, then we'll probably get confirmation soon. We'll update this article when that occurs, or if we hear anything more about what's going on.
