In an interview with Kotaku, director of the latest (and many say greatest) God of War game Cory Barlog was asked about his future plans for the series.
Kotaku’s Jason Schreier asked Barlog about future games in a longer interview on the site. “So how much of the future game plan do you have mapped out in your head?”
“Five games,” Barlog replied.
“So that’s 25 years?” Schreier asked, referring to the PlayStation 4 God of War taking five years to develop. “Is that what you’re prepared for?”
“No. I want to figure out how to make these things faster, man.” Barlog then explains how he hopes and plans to make these games faster from here on out, hopefully not taking 25 years to complete.
You can find the full interview here, but warning that it starts off spoilery and only gets more spoilery from there. God of War was released on April 20 exclusively on the PlayStation 4. Check out our review of the game here and the first episode of the God of War Game Club here.
I am not sure I am down for five more God of War games, but I’m also not sure I take Barlog’s statement at face value. It’s definitely easy to want to make five more games, but practically speaking it is a lot harder to do. We’ll see what Barlog accomplishes, though, as he definitely caught me by surprise this time.
