Sony wants to put God of War 'to bed for a while'

Stig Asmussen, director of the upcoming God of War III, has said that punters shouldn’t expect fresh entries in the series to be churned out on a regular basis, with Sony keen to extend the waiting period between each instalment or risk the franchise becoming “irrelevant.”
"I think there comes a time when to maintain a high level of quality... the bottom line is you can't get burned out, and the source material can't always be the same," said Asmussen, during a chinwag with 1up.
"I want God of War to be one of those games where if there are more God of Wars, we're seeing them spread out over time - it's not like our studio's making a new God of War every two or three years or something like that, and then the series becomes irrelevant."
Apparently, The Stig even went as far to say that he wouldn’t mind waiting a decade before we see Kratos again following the third game.
"Then when it comes back, it's fresh and you remember why you loved that game so much," he continued. "I think it would be good at this point to take that approach with God of War... For a trilogy, it's great. Let's put it to bed for awhile though."
God of War III hits shops later this month.
