SCEA: "We Have Not Forgotten About The GoW Fans"
Even though it won Most Anticipated game at the Spike TV VGAs and it's guaranteed to be a major blockbuster title, much of the recent hype has steered away from God of War III.
As is generally the case, the headlines have shifted to embrace more immediate action releases, like Bayonetta and Dante's Inferno. Both titles are getting plenty of praise, so perhaps you're wondering how the GoWIII developers are processing this information. Well, they're hardly deviating from the path and instead of taking a few potshots at the competition, they're taking a classier route and simply giving us an encouraging update. According to a recent entry at his personal blog, SCEA Lead Game Animator Bruno Velazquez says we shouldn't worry; they haven't forgotten about the fans:
"Let me go ahead and make one thing clear: we have not forgotten about the GOW fans. The last few months the entire team has been putting many late hours working very hard in polishing the game to make it the best possible. The reason why we do this is because we are passionate about making a great game for all you guys out there that are patiently waiting for GOW3. I understand that next year we will have lots of competition with games like Bayonetta, Darksiders, Dante’s Inferno, and Castlevania but we all we can do is worry about making our game good and making it a fitting end to the trilogy...
I will leave you guys with the fact that currently that the game is fully playable from beginning to end and we have had various playtests already with people from the outside. We have already gotten tons of feedback. Every boss battle and every enemy is in the game. We are just focusing on polishing and making adjustments and changes to places that are needed in the game. I want to assure you guys that the game is on track and we cannot wait to get it in your hands next March."
However...did anyone notice that "fitting end to the trilogy" bit? Er...don't you dare take GoW away from us! We want more installments!
