Rumors about Sony acquiring remaster maestros Bluepoint Games have started gathering steam once again, and this time, the administrator over at prominent games forum ResetEra has now chimed in on the matter.
But first, let’s go back a bit. Last year, ResetEra forum member MarsipanRumpan posted that a deal between both Sony and Bluepoint Games had been finalised. Unfortunately, this caused a lot of uproar on the forums, with people calling for the user to be banned as nothing on the supposed acquisition had come to fruition.
Now, moderator Transistor has offered their two cents on the matter, and has backed up the previous user’s claims that an acquisition is indeed on the cards.
First off, I want to say how disappointed in this community I am”, ‘Transistor writes”. “The amount of hostility in this thread is unwarranted. This community needs to be better about how it treats one another.
As for MarsipanRumpan, he’s not going to get banned, so chill the fuck out. There’s been smoke from multiple sources about Bluepoint being acquired by Sony, so it’s pretty much going to happen, it’s just a matter of when. I had faith enough that it was going to happen so I would never have to ban them in the first place. I don’t like actual ban bets and don’t tend to entertain them.
Bluepoint Games is best known for its various remasters and remakes, having worked on the likes of Metal Gear Solid The HD Collection, Shadow of the Colossus and PS5’s Demon’s Souls.
