Lords Of Shadow Dev Teases New Project
Oh, I know! Someone's going to make a true sequel to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, huh?
Yeah, probably not. But we do know that developer Mercury Steam won't be producing a Lords of Shadow 3 after the upcoming sequel launches, and they're teasing a brand new project, perhaps a new Castlevania entry.
Series producer Dave Cox said during a Comic-Con roundtable interview that his team had learned quite a bit, and they want to apply that knowledge to an all-new title. Besides, he says they've said everything that needs to be said with LoS:
"I think if you've got something to say, you should just say it, and when you're done, just shut up. And we've got something to say. And once it's out thereÖI think it's time for somebody else; somebody younger, a younger producer to come in and take up the mantle and do what they think would be right for Castlevania and for us to move on to something else.
So, if there is a third LoS installment, another team will have to handle it. Last year, Cox said the developer had few "really cool ideas" and it's no secret that he's a "big fan of Contra. So maybe that's their next conquest...? Or is it a totally different Castlevania?
