‘God of War Ragnarök’ director wants to work on ‘Castlevania’

Eric Williams, the director of God of War Ragnarök, has revealed his want to work on the legendary Castlevania franchise – offered Konami is keen to outsource the license.

Williams’ feedback have been made throughout the newest Kinda Funny Games Spoilercast video (by way of VGC), the place he requested followers to assist “make it happen.”

“You guys can make it happen,” stated Williams. “You have the audience out here. I don’t know what I’m doing next, but if somebody gets me that Castlevania license we would love to make it.”

It’s arduous to guess how seemingly Konami is to play ball right here – or certainly, how critical Williams is about this. Konami does have a current historical past of outsourcing its extra fashionable titles to exterior builders. After all, there are a number of upcoming video games within the Silent Hill franchise, which can also be owned by Konami. All of these video games have been outsourced to exterior builders – maybe most notably the Silent Hill 2 remake, being developed by The Medium developer Bloober Team.

On the opposite hand, issues have been quiet on the Castlevania entrance for fairly a while – as is the case for a lot of of Konami’s hottest licences. We haven’t seen a brand new Castlevania title in virtually a decade now, with the final mainline installment, Lords of Shadow 2, releasing in 2014. Although, it’s price noting that Lords of Shadow 2 was itself outsourced to Spanish developer MercurySteam, who’s now higher referred to as the developer behind Metroid Dread.

Even if Konami have been to play together with Williams’ wishes, God of War Ragnarök developer Sony Santa Monica could not even have time to work on the franchise. As the studio’s artistic director Cory Barlog informed the Los Angeles Times earlier this month, Sony Santa Monica is at present “spread out on a lot of different things,” implying that the studio is busy with a number of tasks.

In that very same interview, Williams revealed that he could be open to working on the God of War franchise full-time, so it’s possibly finest to restrict expectations that Sony Santa Monica shall be working on a Castlevania recreation anytime quickly.

“I remember talking to someone from another game company, where they were trying to get me to leave,” stated Williams. “They said, ‘Do you just want to be known as the God of War guy for the rest of your life?’ That was your big pitch to dissuade me? Because yes, I kind of do.”

In different gaming information, Microsoft has revealed that it supplied Sony a 10-year deal to hold Call Of Duty on PlayStation.
