Digital Foundry had the opportunity to talk with the team about the technology powering its latest release, and asked whether the expanded art team brought on for the project would be deployed next on an original game.

Though both Dalton and Thrush agree that the studio could go back to making original games again, they maintain that the focus on the new project is to improve on the foundation they built to remake Shadow of Colossus.

Not willing to beat around the bush, Bluepoint's president and co-owner Marco Thrush had this to say to Digital Foundry: "Well, we could but we're doing another remake".

The task of remaking Shadow of the Colossus was a very big one for Bluepoint, which needed to expand its art team to fulfill its obligations for the project. Since then Bluepoint has made nearly nothing but remasters and the PS4 version of Shadow of the Colossus was their first remake. He continued: "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". They have aims to improve the art pipeline as well as improving the engine, the workflow of artists and such. Which games should have remakes on the PS4?

Glencore (GLEN) Earns "Outperform" Rating from Credit Suisse Group
Shares of Glencore ( GLEN ) traded up GBX 6.50 ($0.09) during trading hours on Thursday, hitting GBX 369.80 ($5.11). The stock of Capital & Regional Plc (LON:CAL) has "Buy" rating given on Thursday, March 8 by Numis Securities.

They don't give out any other details, but Thrush states that the studio is very "excited about our next project and we think you will be too when you find out what it is".

After Bluepoint Games' stunning remake of Shadow of Colossus, it wouldn't be too much of a surprise for fans of the company to hear that they'll be setting their sights on another remake. One of most commonly thrown around games on the Internet since the above news broke has been the cult-classic, Demon's Souls. Further, when you factor in the game's cult-like audience who would be chomping at the bit for a remake, the success Sony found with Bloodborne, the recent Dark Souls remaster announcement, Bluepoints history with Sony, and the increasing market demand for these type of games, it seems obvious that Bluepoint is working on Demon's Souls. One of the clues is that Sony shut down the game's servers shortly after its ninth anniversary without any explanation.

The rest of the interview is focused on the development process of Shadow of the Colossus, all the way down to how the textures were done and how real-time shadows really work.
