Some people think that the God of War franchise is treading water, now that it is seeing its sixth major release (two on PS2, two on PSP and now two on PS3). However, lead designer Mark Simon asserts that there still a lot of potential for the series.
“I think there’s still life in Kratos,” said Simon. “He’s a fun character to design games around and I love playing him.”
“Yeah, I think the fantasy of Kratos is always compelling,” added Lead combat designer Jason McDonald. “There’s not many characters that are like him.”
