Do You Want Kratos To Return?
We've been hearing conflicting reports about the future direction of the esteemed God of War franchise - for instance, will Greek mythology stick around or will we see an all new setting? - but perhaps the big question is, should the main character return?
We should probably clarify that SCEA Santa Monica has said they don't wish to saturate the industry with GoW installments; they have indeed said it's "time to take a break." That being said, we also know the series can't possibly die, so when it does return, should the bald bad-ass we've come to know return for an entirely new story or trilogy? The reason we ask is because it may actually hinge on the gamers... According to ConnectedConsoles citing a recent Stuff magazine interview with SCEA lead animator Bruno Velazquez, it's sort of a wait-and-see situation. Said Velazquez:
"We'll see how the game goes and if fans want to see more Kratos, who knows? Right now, stay tuned."
We have a follow-up question: if they're not going to stick with Greek mythology, how could Kratos return, unless he jumps in a freshly rigged DeLorean and zips to another era...? But let's just say for the sake of argument that they do stay with the Greek premise; would you want Kratos again, or should they try for a new protagonist?
