It has been revealed by a Sony representative that Cory Barlog, the dude behind God of War 2, is leaving SCEA’s Santa Monica studio. “We are grateful for his work and creative vision for the critically acclaimed God of War franchise,” he said, adding that they are confident in the remaining members of the God of War team, unofficially confirming the development of God of War 3 on the PS3.
Barlog is best known for stepping into the titan-sized shoes of David Jaffe, creator of the God of War franchise, in the sequel; he served as animation director on the first game. While Jaffe went on to form his own Sony-endorsed game studio Eat, Sleep and Play, it is currently not known what Barlog’s future plans are.
We wish you good luck Barlog, wherever you go!
