This past night we have received the sad news that Andy O’Neil, the co-founder of Bluepoint Games, has passed away. The studio specialized in the last times in carrying out remasters and super remakes with titles like the recent remake of Shadow of the Colossus and the remastering of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection.
O’Neil, British nationality and 47 years old, has died in Austin, Texas, at age 47, and during his life was a key figure in the formation of the Bluepoint studio in 2006, but he also previously went through Acclaim or Retro Studios where I’ve played important roles.
” Andy’s contributions to the video game industry will never be forgotten & quot ;, they state from the studio. ” We are deeply saddened by your loss, but also very grateful to the fact that it was part of our lives ”
