The more I think about it, the more I liken waiting for a video game’s release to disappointment. I don’t know about you, but ever since God of War came out, I was hooked. Then came God of War II. The game was awesome but the ending was just not enough to be satisfying. I comforted myself with the thought that they would be coming out with the third installment to the series soon enough.
Of course, when the news of Cory Barlog leaving Sony came out, I kind of expected some bad news. However, if you remember that post on Cory Barlog, he stated that GOW III is in good hands. That kind of pacified my apprehensions.
Now someone from Sony has released a statement that the much awaited game will not be out till December of 2009 – and that would be the earliest possible time! For us who have finished GOW II and cannot wait to play the next installment (possibly the last, too), this piece of news is so not welcome. As we all supposed, there was something more to Cory’s leaving Sony. Whatever it is, it is affecting the development and release of GOW II.
Well, there you have it. No more of Kratos till Christmas next year – at the very earliest! This really sucks. Well at least we can look forward to some other games like GTA IV and Dynasty Warriors sometime this year – I hope!
