Castlevania From God of War Devs? Ragnarok's Director Dreams of It

The director of God of War Ragnarok has admitted that he would like to take on a Castlevania game. And it's not an impossible task to accomplish.

God of War Ragnarok met the expectations of gamers and became one of the most successful launches of 2022. As a result, the devs at Santa Monica Studio, responsible for the latest installment in the story of Kratos and Atreus, are collecting praise a plenty.

It's also not surprising that many people are wondering about the developers' next step, or more specifically, the next game they will take on. Director of Ragnarok , Eric Williams, has admitted that he would like to make the next Castlevania.

What will Santa Monica do?

Williams spoke on wanting to make a new Castlevania game in an episode of Kinda Funny Games podcast, which was almost entirely devoted to GoW: Ragnarok.

The director appealed to the fans to "make it happen." Williams stated that for the time being it is not known what project the studio will tackle next, but if someone would give him the opportunity to make the next Castlevania, he would gladly accept the offer.

This is not entirely impossible, if we take into account a recent interview with the developers at Santa Monica Studio. While no specifics were revealed, they hinted at "working on several projects."

And while Castlevania has seen no new installments since Lords of Shadow 2 from 2014, Konami has recently begun to resurrect older brands with the help of third-party developers - just to mention the remake of Silent Hill 2 developed by Bloober Team.
