Future Of God Of War: "Greek Mythology Is Finished"

We hope you get your fill of Greek mythology in God of War III because the game likely represents the end of that type of setting.

As everyone knows, the critically acclaimed trilogy has focused on Greek mythology from the start; it's a central theme for the series and one that has worked very, very well. But without spoiling the ending of GoWIII, let's just say that a new entry in that same universe could be difficult. Therefore, MTV Multiplayer asked game director Stig Asmussen about how they plan to continue the franchise, now that the trilogy is complete. Even if Kratos and Co. don't return, might they still keep the Greek mythology setting? Short answer- nope. Said Asmussen:

"Greek mythology is finished. That's what we've been saying all along, we're closing the book on the trilogy and Kratos has obliterated Greek mythology so it just becomes a myth. I don't know what's next, to be honest with you, I have no clue, but I wanted to make sure that we had some tools in there that we could kind of resurrect the story and take it some other places."

Buuut, at the same time, the source cites a previous interview with SCEA Santa Monica director of product development John Hight, where he said something that contradicts Asmussen's comments. Simply, he said: "Greek mythology is a big part of it. I don't imagine that we'd ever stray away from that." Okay, so who's right? Are we already looking at a clash of creativity? Well, for our part, we almost don't care where the franchise goes, provided the same team works on it in the future. That should guarantee the quality, regardless of setting.
