Update: Cory Barlog has clarified his statements from Kotaku’s Splitscreen podcast to clarify he didn’t mean five more God of War games are definitely in the works.
Barlog tweeted that the discussion on the podcast was much more “speculation” and not necessarily a declaration of exact plans for the God of War franchise. The future of the franchise “is going to be more measured” than what he discussed on the show.
“ok. to be honest, 5 games would literally kill me. you can rest assured the reality is going to be more measured than the speculation in the @kotaku discussion,” he wrote.
