While Sony Interactive Entertainment is already recognized for its highly-received repertoire of titles this past console generation on PlayStation 4, the PlayStation company is in search to continue the rollout of software through complete acquisition. Similar to Microsoft’s ongoing campaign to deliver unique releases on its platform, the PlayStation firm is already making moves on the industry.
In that, the firm most recently welcomed the addition of Housemarque to PlayStation Studios. Additionally, PlayStation Japan on Twitter disclosed that developer Bluepoint Games is another subsidiary being welcomed to the internal team. But, it appears that despite the now-deleted post making its way into public eye, the team was not intending to be under the PlayStation banner.
On Twitter, Bluepoint Games has listed itself as “fully independent”. As for when the team made the change of its social media bio goes back as far as March 2021. Additionally, the firm also includes itself as the same status in recent job listings for the team, Reddit poster u/fabiopazzo2 indicates in one thread.
“Bluepoint Games, an independent studio renowned for the remakes of Demon’s Souls and Shadow of the Colossus, and many more like the remaster of The Uncharted Collection, is seeking industry leading talent to join us in crafting our next high-profile AAA title,” the description reads for a Lead Environment Artist posting online.
Elsewhere recently in terms of Sony Interactive Entertainment purchasing talent, the firm announced to be welcoming Nixxes to PlayStation Studios. In that, the PlayStation company tells the new arrangement is intended to improve the quality of its games that arrive uniquely to PlayStation systems. You can read the full report by heading here.
Are you surprised Bluepoint Games still claims itself to be isolated from Sony Interactive Entertainment?
