What’s in the pipeline?
In an interview with Digital Foundry, Bluepoint, the development team behind the recent remake of PS2 classic Shadow of the Colossus, have revealed that work is already underway on a remake of another, yet undisclosed, title.
Bluepoint’s Marco Thrush made the statement when asked about whether the company planned to use its expanded art team and resources on creating their own original title: “Well, we could but we’re doing another remake,” said the studio’s President and co-owner. “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… let’s work on design and add new stuff to get to the next remake.”
The recent PS4 release of Shadow of the Colossus performed admirably, even making it to number one in the UK Charts. The title chosen for Bluepoint’s next project remains to be seen, of course, but some internet folk are already hoping that the company will make the natural transition to the 2001 existential hit, Ico.
Shadow of the Colossus is available now on PS4
