Sony Computer Entertainment has finally (probably accidentally) confirmed a third God of War game for the PlayStation 3.
The news came in a statement to US site 1UP regarding the departure of God of War II director Cory Barlog, who has been confirmed as leaving the company.
A Sony spokesperson stated, "We can confirm that Cory Barlog, game director for God of War II, is leaving the SCEA [Santa Monica] Studio and we are grateful for his work and creative vision for the critically acclaimed God of War franchise.
"Moving forward, we are confident in the God of War team, as they are an extremely talented group of people that are passionate about the franchise and dedicated to creating even more epic content with God of War: Chains of Olympus for the PSP and God of War III for PS3."
There you are then: one of Sony's worst kept secrets seems to have slipped into the open. Hopefully minus Barlog's direction - and with former creative director David Jaffe since departed from SCEA - Sony can still pump out an awesome God of War sequel for PS3.
After the stunning second game we reckon the visuals alone in Kratos' PS3 outing will be enough to entertain our bloodlust. Let's wait and see how Chains of Olympus turns out...
