SCEA have officially announced God of War III is PS3-bound.
Not that we didn't already know that anyway, but it's sure nice to have the official word.
This time, Cory Barlog won't be involved in the project though. The former Director of GoW II has moved on 'somewhere'.
Now, I'm not one to strategise and work out what's happening behind the scenes (ok - that's a lie), but since the original GoW Director David Jaffe set up his Eat, Sleep, Play development house
recently it wouldn't be mad to wonder if Cory is moving over to that new independent developer.
Cory has certainly left with no public word of where he is going, no update to his blog, and SCEA won't confirm any details either, so watch this space.
Still, don't let the fact that neither David Jaffe or Cory Barlog are involved in the project worry you. According to the announcement the GoW II and GoW: Chains of Olympus teams have the full backing of Sony. All they need now is some direction!
Let's just hope that when it goes gold they don't repeat the massive marketing gaff
that caused so much controversy when GoW II was launched.
