Next Title from God of War Creator Likely to be a Shooter

May 7, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

David Jaffe, former head of Eat Sleep Play and creator of God of War and Twisted Metal is apparently broadening his horizons, as word has it that his next major project will be a shooter.

In an interview with IGN, Jaffe shared his plans for the future, saying that he’s narrowed his next project down to a few ideas, one of them clearly being a shooter. “There is a gun in [one of the games]. And you hold it,” Jaffe said. It doesn’t get much clearer than that.

And all the things that I can sit here and passionately discuss and preach to you are absolutely things that I’m thinking about doing if it turns out the game we’re thinking about doing gets made next involves a gun and a person holding a gun.

So why a shooter, you ask? Jaffe hopes to breathe some new life into the genre, noting that he believes “it has been allowed to go a little – well, actually, quite a lot – stale when it comes to moment to moment mechanics.”

Jaffe has introduced some pretty cool concepts to gaming over the years, so we can’t wait to see what he does next.
