only start talking when Sony is ready either could mean they can't talk about it due to it being a next gen PS5 game or the fact that it is a Sony game funded by Sony

I think it is both cases
Yeah, that line is as close to confirmation that it's a Sony funded game as we're going to get.
Also, just a reminder to everyone that Jason Schreier has heavily hinted at this being a Demon's Souls Remake. In a thread asking if people think we'll ever get a DS remake he said yes https://www.resetera.com/threads/think-we’ll-ever-get-a-demon-souls-remaster.101879/#post-18285508
And in a thread with a poll asking what people think Bluepoint's next game is he voted DS remake (you can click the options in the poll to see who voted for it) https://www.resetera.com/threads/bluepoint-games-next-game-is-being-developed-for-the-playstation-5-and-is-a-big-one.145720/
Definitely gonna be a game we should see quite a bit of in a few months time at the reveal event, and hopefully it's a launch game.

Jason Sc. Has pretty much shadow confirmed Demons' Souls Remake by Bluepoint in the other thread. I think we can now easily Say that DeS R is locked for PS5's launch! Now someone confirm Ratchet ASAP!

He already confirmed it months ago by voting for DS Remake being their next project in a poll.
I'm just wondering how big of a remake it is, back at GDC they said their next game is a re-envisioning.

R&C had been an open secret rumour wise too for some time (I remember people kept on posting people claiming the game was being made )

people also thought it was going to be a late PS4 title but that clearly turned out to not be the case like Demon Souls Remake

Might very well have been a late PS4 game moved to PS5. Don't forget that back in January Zhuge openly said he was aware of multiple unannounced Sony PS4 games being in development but there was a chance of them becoming cross-gen or next-gen titles entirely. R&C on PS4 was already beautiful, but when we're getting a game focused on PS5 hardware it might very well be a good which looks like a top tier CGI cartoon movie.

If they are taking big creative liberties, and it pays off, Sony could very well wind up handing control of their Souls IPs over to Bluepoint, if they were to be adquired.

I just wish they use the CPU and SSD for a next step in worlds and AI

I don't think they'd do that, there's still a huge difference between remaking games and making something of your own, and Souls games wouldn't exactly be easy to make. If Sony were to acquire Bluepoint and if they go on to make their own unique title it should be a new IP or a revival of a franchise which hasn't been seen in the last decade or longer.

PS5 news getting more and more frequent. Feels like we're getting something every few days now. Hype times ahead

I can already hear the Legend of Dragoon fans from a mile away

Side note - I wonder if the liberties that Bluepoint is taking with Demon Souls have to do with leveraging the power of the new CPU and/or SSD?

Dragoon would require a full blown reboot. Bluepoint becoming the premier "JRPG" (yes I know they are not Japanese, humor me) studio would be a wild turn of events.

Changing anything about a From game is a pretty big creative risk. Anyone doing that has to be extremely fucking careful.
Yeah, but it's a risk I'd like to see Sony doing. The same goes for almost every other IP they have.

It's nice that Sony has so much caring and wants to treat their IPs as carefully as possible, but it's time for them to do like Nintendo, which licenses its IPs to third party studios. Sony has too many important IPs that are in the limbo because they have no ideas or time to develop in their own studios.

It would be mighty nice to see Sly again :/

This is what i'm hoping that Shu is going to spearhead. A game like Alundra would be a perfect IP for an indie studio to work on. Working with indies to revive their old franchises is a perfect way of getting them back on the map and without having a massive budget blowout in the process.

Shadow of the Beast could have been the start of that....

I REALLY wanted that game to be good.

Pretty sure only one person has ever openly said Ratchet & Clank was a thing and they were wrong about it being a PS4 game, even after declaring it obvious, and could be wrong it is a PS5 game.

I’m not beholden to the idea Ratchet & Clank is coming so soon, but we’ll see.

Regarding the GI picture:

it’s wild to me that Fat Princess continues to appear in Sony legacy shots, yet, like, no one actually has any reverence for any of the three games.

Seems Falcom will remain multiplat, given the recent comments about Switch trends and with CSIII no longer being console exclusive either.

Another studio to take off the acquisition list~~~
Honestly, this one doesn't hurt me at all.

Trails series needs ALL the help it can get in the west.

I love this series with a passion. If there is a userbase on switch for these games, they should absolutely develop for it. I don't think Trails will leave Playstation.

So developers are free to specifically say they're making PS5 games now?

Well they used to say they are making a next gen game before.
Now the PS5 is the official name, they can say they are making a PS5 game.

I wouldn’t believe it either but after the Insomniac acquisition I’m pretty sure Layden said that PS is excited about the future of Spider-Man and Ratchet&Clank. I think there’s something there, even if the platform and the timing are wrong.
Seems Falcom will remain multiplat, given the recent comments about Switch trends and with CSIII no longer being console exclusive either.

Honestly, that’s fine, I’d rather see Falcom make a AAA JRPG before an acquisition anyway. If the Switch audience pours more money into Falcom and it results in better games on both PS5 and Switch, that’s great.

It's going to be interesting how Playstation's relationships with Japanese developers changes, now that Devs are organically moving to the Switch, and Xbox is brute forcing their way unto the arena.

It’ll be the same as every gen, there will be games that are exclusive and games that are multiplat but most importantly PlayStation will get everything.
