While the Bluepoint Games PS5 project may not be ready to be revealed just yet, but from what they’re saying, it certainly appears to be their biggest and most exciting one yet.
In a recent interview done by Segmentnext, Bluepoint Games president Marco Thrush discusses briefly about their next project, calling it an achievement that the team is most proud of thus far.
We [Bluepoint Games] originally remastered Shadow of the Colossus for the PS3 and then remade it for the PS4. It’s the only one we’ve touched twice and to date it is our greatest achievement, so it’s easy to say that is our personal favorite. However, there’s no question in our minds that our current project will become the achievement we’re most proud of.
The news came out last year that the team had begun to go on a hiring spree for their remaster title, although we haven’t heard what game it could be. Rumors suggest that they are working on remaking Demon Souls, similar to how they remade Shadow of the Colossus.
Demon Souls originally came out in February 2009, exclusively for the PlayStation 3. It opened up to mix reviews due to its unforgiving difficulty, though it’s also due to this reason that it quickly gained a large following, and eventually, From Software released a spiritual successor known as Dark Souls and then another as Bloodborne. Since then, fans have been wanting a sequel to either Demon Souls or Bloodborne, although a remaster of the original one would suit well for them.
And despite it only being a rumor, there does seem to be some evidence to back this up as Bluepoint games have been teasing a soul related announcement in some of their cryptic messages.
To classics we play
Our blood, sweat, tears give thanks!
To family & fans, eager you stay
Cheers rekindle flames – thanks!
Today feast, tomorrow rest
Soon the beast freed from jest
Temptation we shun
Then onto the next
We reset to further adorn the genesis
An era reborn pic.twitter.com/Wy7pZQeoF7

So calm this spooky night. A symphony of rumors – not one, but two – return from shadow. A resistance to dart home as black monsters escape twisted hills to wander lands and syphon souls. Filter your candy collections, soft from solid, and be eco-friendly. Have a metal Halloween. pic.twitter.com/mFFxI7BIDN

Of course, reading the above message, you may conclude that they are working on multiple remakes, as many others are referenced. We won’t know for sure, but there is a PlayStation State of Play happening next Tuesday, so there’s a low chance we will see the title teased there. Having said that, it’s doubtful, considering this State of Play won’t focus on any PS5 news according to Sony..
