Following the release of 2018’s God of War, Eric Williams has taken over as director of the sequel. Having recently released God of War Ragnarok, the director is already thinking about what project to work on next.
Eric Williams recently took part in the Kinda Funny Games podcast, where he talked about his plans and what he would like to do. According to the director, he would love to have the opportunity to work on a game in the Castlevania franchise.
The director even asks fans to help make this dream happen, encouraging Konami to outsource its classic vampire franchise to Sony Santa Monica Studio to develop a title.
“You can make it happen. […] I don’t know what I’m going to do next, but if somebody gives me the Castlevania license, we’d love to do that.”
Whether this will happen we don’t know, but the director seemed to be serious about his desire to work on the franchise. However, Eric Williams claims that he probably “got himself into a lot of trouble” for saying that.
Konami’s idea of outsourcing its franchise is not impossible. After years of downtime, the Silent Hill IP is coming back with several games, each one made by a different developer. Who knows, the same may happen in the future with Castlevania.
Still, Eric Williams says that he would also be very happy if he could dedicate himself 100% to the God of War franchise, continuing to bring more titles from this series in the future.
“I remember talking to people from another game company, they were trying to get me to leave. They said, “Do you just want to be known as the God of War guy for the rest of your life?” Was that their big argument to convince me? Because yes, I kind of would.”
