Gamers around the world are eagerly awaiting the release of God of War III, the third title in the long-standing series that has become a cornerstone for the PlayStation family. The internal Sony team, Sony Santa Monica, has been hard at work for the past three years working on the game, and has had little time for anything else. In a recent interview, Senior Producer Steve Caterson said the team has “no idea” what they want to do next.
When pressed by Industry Gamers about what the studio is doing now, Caterson said the following:
“I have no idea! I just finished three years of my life on God of War III and seven years on the God of War series – I have kids younger than that! We’re excited to work on large projects but it’s not a decision that’s made flippantly and we’re going to take our time with it,” he said.
“The only game I had the chance to play through the past few years was Dead Space; there are other games that have released that I want to have a chance to sit down and have those experiences! Actually playing some of those great games out there and seeing what other developers are doing… I’m looking for to it – that’s the best part of finishing a game!”
Then, when pressed about whether there’ll be another God of War title from the studio, he remarked:
“Well, God of War III is the end of the trilogy. We didn’t leave you on a cliffhanger but I think it’s not the end of the franchise. I’m looking forward to do something different if we can. It also might be nice to return to the franchise if we can and bring all that knowledge back from wherever we go. Anything’s possible. It’s premature to say what it might be, since I don’t even know what I’ll be doing next week!”
Worldwide anticipation has hit record peaks, as we are just days away from one of the most anticipated titles of the PS3’s history. It is quite obvious the studio has worked hard on this title. What do you think the studio will do next? Post your thoughts and feelings in the comments section below.
