Captain Obvious: God of War IV will happen

What’s left for Kratos after God of War III? It looks like the spirited man who spits in the faces of gods and titans will resume his role as the spirited man who spits in the faces of gods and titans.

In a not-so-recent interview with Gamervision, Sony Santa Monica director of project development John Hight revealed that the God of War series is set to continue after God of War III is released.

“This is not the end of God of War,” Hight said during the video interview. “This is definitely the end of the trilogy, but we’re going to continue to do God of War games.

“We’re going to be very careful about what we do. We’re the keepers of the franchise and we don’t want to see it ruined or polluted.”

I assume that Kratos will resume his role in the next God of War, but it’s possible that another protagonist could step into the picture — and that’s not a bad thing if you chew on it real nice and slow. I’m all about controlling Kratos’ mini-game bastard child in an epic adventure to find his father. Or, a gryffon flight sim. That’d be rad.
