Bluepoint is hard at work on remaking a beloved game, maybe even two beloved games, but if you're trying to decipher what their project may be based on their tweets, good luck. A new tease was tweeted by the studio this morning, who has spent a lot of their history lending support as a port and remake studio for games such as Shadow of the Colossus (2018) and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. Here's their latest teaser:
The tweet's deliberately mysterious language mirrors one Bluepoint tweeted on Halloween which included apparent teases to a multitude of games, like Castlevania, Syphon Filter, Demon Souls, and more. That same tweet also seemed to imply Blueprint is working on not one but two games from its array of hints.
This latest tweet has many people in the comments thinking Demon's Souls is one of those games given the allusions to rekindling fire, freed beasts, and mention of adorning "the genesis." Demon's Souls is the spiritual predecessor to Dark Souls, which grew in popularity much more than its predecessor and helped the soulslike genre boom. But it all started with Demon's Souls, and for what it's worth, rumors of this being Bluepoint's next game were going around even before the studio started tweeting world puzzles. Others though, have wondered if it's actually a nod to games like faded RPG Legend of Dragoon or SOCOM, the once dominant military shooter.
Bluepoint earned high praise for their 2018 remake of Shadow of the Colossus, evidenced by its 92 OpenCritic average and 97% recommendation from 126 critics. There's no telling when Bluepoint will lift the lid on this project, but with The Game Awards approaching on December 12, it could be a likely landing spot for a reveal trailer, given the show's penchant for spending near-equal time on awards as they do on previews of new games to come.
