God of War‘s game director already knows what direction he wants to take the series, with multiple games planned after next year’s installment.
In an interview with Daily Star, game director Cory Barlog was asked if the upcoming God of War is a “one-shot deal.” While Barlog claimed his focus is currently on getting God of War out, he did reveal that his vision for the world and the character “goes well beyond” the upcoming installment.
“For me, I am just trying to get this game done,” Barlog said. “But I will say that when I chose this story, I had chosen it because I already outlined and mapped out stories for multiple games. I have an [arc] in my head that goes well beyond this game and everything that we are doing in God of War, to me, is very much building towards that.”
Previous comments by Barlog have proposed that next year’s God of War is the beginning of a new saga, but only now have we learned it is a saga that the developer apparently already has mapped out in his head.
God of War is slated to launch sometime in early 2018, coming exclusively to PlayStation 4.
