“I’ve always thought that this was a torch being passed down,” David told Destructoid. “Nobody on the team ever felt like we owned Castlevania. We always felt it was our responsibility now but it wouldn’t be ours forever. Let’s do what we’re going to do, tell our story, and move on.”
“So we’ve told Japan headquarters that this is the last one for us… there’s nothing worse than when somebody’s got something to say, and when they’ve said it, they just keep talking. We’ve got a beginning and end, and it’s a cool ending and a cool story. Once we’ve done that, it’s time to say to somebody else, ‘now it’s your turn.’ Maybe it will be a young producer in the company looking for his first break. I think you’ve got to bring in fresh blood.”
I’m sure many fans of the series will be disappointed by this news. That being said, the future of Lords of Shadow series may be bleak right now but let’s hope Konami will find a developer that will continue the series for the next-gen consoles.
