God Of War III Scheduled For GDC 2008

The Game Developers Conference is almost upon us, and while certain blockbuster titles like Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots won't be making an appearance, others apparently will.

If you take a look at GameSpot's GDC 2008 games listing, you will find several notable names. Some of them, like Bioshock, Mass Effect, Rock Band, God of War: Chains of Olympus and The Orange Box, you're already familiar with. Heck, all of them are already available at retail stores except for the PSP God of War, which will hit very soon (March 4). Unfortunately, we see nothing about Grand Theft Auto IV, Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 2, or Final Fantasy XIII, and while that may appear depressing, don't miss the big one- God of War III, sitting right there between Twisted Metal: Head-On: Extra Twisted Edition and Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords. Now, the only information we have on GoWIII to date says we shouldn't expect the it until 2009...could this mean the game might actually arrive this year?

It would be quite the addition to 2008, and if the Santa Monica team is ready to show off some gameplay (cross your fingers!), God of War III might actually be on tap for Christmas time. Of course, we'd be happy with a brief trailer at this point.

The first GOW took three years, the second one took about two years, maybe the third one will take a year but i doubt it because developers seem to have a lot of issues with the PS3. I would be happy to have it for christmas but i would like it to be later if it means better graphics, story etc... Is Jaffee directing the new one? He is just so cool!!!

actually Phantom, developers don't have the kind of problems some people think they do. I have heard that its not all that difficult to program on the PS3. Its just simply that it is different. But I don't believe Jaffee will be on board for this one. I think I read somewhere, where he said he was done with this series. I think he wrote the story, though. I cant wait to see how good it looks!

Jaffee moved on and made is own developing company, but i don't think sony will hesitate to call him if they need any help.

The reason it didnt take as long to create God of War 2 than it did for 1, was because they already had the game's engine from the first one, and just used it to make #2. GoW3 wont take 1 year to make, because it will most likley be built from the ground up.
