Sony has officially announced the PlayStation 5 is coming next holiday season and started to share more details on hardware including the new haptic controller. Of course, games make all the difference, and we know of at least one developer currently on a PS5 project.
Bluepoint Games, a studio known for handling acclaimed remasters like Shadow of the Colossus and Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, is at work on a game. Marco Thrush, president of Bluepoint, dropped a comment about its current projects to Wired.
“We’re working on a big one right now,” said Thrush. “I’ll let you figure out the rest.”
The comment could indicate another port, optimized for the PS5 hardware, or Bluepoint may have been tapped to help with the workload for another studio’s game. Alternatively, Bluepoint could be making its own original game, having spent years developing on PlayStation hardware.
We know that the PS5 will use an SSD for quicker load times, and supports ray tracing. The controller is said to have haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that allow developers to program the level of resistance when you use them. All of that hardware power and new bells and whistles are starting to go out to developers with official dev kits, so it remains to be seen how it will be used.
