Speaking to 1up.com, director Stig Asmussen says that God of war 3 should be “put to bed”. He said: “I think there comes a time when to maintain a high level of quality… the bottom line is you can’t get burned out, and the source material can’t always be the same,” said Asmussen. “I want God of War to be one of those games where if there are more God of Wars, we’re seeing them spread out over time — it’s not like our studio’s making a new God of War every two or three years or something like that, and then the series becomes irrelevant. I like the approach of, ‘We just won’t make Metroid for 10 years. Why do we have to keep making Metroid?’ And then when it comes back, it’s fresh and you remember why you loved that game so much. I think it would be good at this point to take that approach with God of War… For a trilogy, it’s great. Let’s put it to bed for awhile though.”
God of War 3 comes out March 16th, 2010. Check back with us for a full review of the game.
