Speaking last month to Gamervision, Sony Santa Monica director of product development John Hight confirmed that although God of War III marks the end of the current trilogy, fans can expect more from the franchise in the future.

"This is not the end of God of War. This is definitely the end of the trilogy, but we're going to continue to do God of War games," said Hight. "We're going to be very careful about what we do. We're the keepers of the franchise and we don't want to see it ruined or polluted."

God of War III is without a confirmed release date in Europe, but is expected in March.
