"While the studio has certainly grown over the past 15 years, our cultural beliefs have remained the same—to always push the envelope and create the highest-quality games possible all while having fun doing it, Bluepoint Games president, Marco Thrush, says in a statement. "The focus on culture has been instrumental to our success and we’re excited that PlayStation Studios shares a similar culture and vision."
"Bluepoint has built a name for itself by creating some of the highest-quality remasters and remakes in the industry," Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios, shares. "With each of its projects, Bluepoint has raised the bar on console-defining visuals and gameplay, and the studio’s vast expertise in world building and character creation will be a huge plus for future PlayStation Studios properties."
