Sony ls making further acquisitions with Housemarque and BluePoint Studios

Housemarque, the studio behind Returnal, Dead Nation and Super Stardust HD has become the newest addition to PlayStation Studios.


In a press statement from Ilari Kuittinen, the Co-founder and Managing Director of Housemarque praised the decision and believes it will usher in a positive new era for the studio.


When this news broke, the official PlayStation Japan Twitter account posted an image suggesting Sony has purchased Bluepoint Games. The tweet and image were quickly pulled.


Both studios have long histories of releasing titles on the PlayStation console, and with Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda and other game developers factoring in, Sony will want to add further studios under its belt.
