Sony Santa Monica has moved to reassure punters that they haven’t seen the last of God of War, despite the fact the developer is wrapping up the trilogy with Kratos’ eagerly anticipated third outing this spring.
Speaking to the chaps at Gamervision, director of product development at Sony Santa Monica John Hight commented, “This is not the end of God of War.”
“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,” he continued.
Encouraging news – we certainly can’t get enough of the lovable slap head and his Blades of Athena. Keep your eyes peeled for more God of War news in the coming weeks.

So basically expect the eding of God of War 3 to be a Soppranos style fade to black. God I hate it when they do.......

I knew this was gunna happen.. I heard a possible brother for the next player

Most likely prequels or something like that. I think that GOW3 will be the "end" of the story, but not the last game that is released.

belive it or not I'm happy to hear that !! you can't let the gow franchise die just like that ! its one of those game I prefer to see being milked than dead LOL

Ugh. Please stop.

Krato's Brother maybe?

Not interested in any more GOW games unless they add more RPG elements. As far as I'm concerned, they wasted an EPIC opportunity to make an incredible RPG series that would have taken the crown from Final Fantasy with one unforgettable game. Instead, they took the easy way out and made a game (several, actually) for the ADD. GOW is the MW2 of action beat-'em-ups. Seen one, seen them all.

God of War Tetris with internal organs drenched in blood rather than blocks.

My guess is future GoW games will follow Kratos' brother. His troubled past is briefly illustrated in a bonus video from the collection, and was a bonus video in one of the original games I believe. Or a totally new character would be a nice change, set in Ancient Egyptian times.

Oh well the more God of War the better....

I'd say a prequel is likely, as are spin offs.
@9: I prefer RPGs to other genres as well, but I think that this is way better as a beat em up. You are right when you're saying that it's not much different from other slashers, but that's just the way it is. Also, in defense of the greatness that FF has achieved (and is now looking to forfeit ;) ) no one game can ever take that.

I'm thinking that they will be changing the time periods

Possible offspring ... we come to realize that after all those sex mini games, Kratos knocked a few of them up, now there is a band of brothers known as the Sons of Kratos .. and they leave nothing but blood and violence in their wake ...

Interesting. This is one game series that I will never get bored of. But after playing god of war 2 and seeing the videos, I really wanted to know more about the war between the gods and the titans.

i always preferred the first two onimusha games to this, its a shame that series out. but GOW is a great game, but unlike onimusha 2, theres not alot to it. anyone who played onimusha 1-3 will know it had one of the best fighting mechanics in a game.

yeah i remember palying the onimusha games they were so great! XD ah by the way remember Kratos is in full control of the Threads of Fate who knows... he'll end up in the near future maybe? (or past) just thinking , put a good history and I'll be buying another GoW game LOL

I LOVE God of War but I never buy it. It's WAY too short to be bought for the full price of a game. A game needs to last me for at least 50 hours and playing through it on normal mode and then the highest difficulity + some challenges (like challenge of Hades or something in Chains Of Olympus for the PSP game of GoW). It IS a good game and I'm definitely fine with more awesome rental games for me. But this is just my 2 cents about GoW though :P
