Konami teases new Castlevania game
During this year’s Comic-Con, Dave Cox, producer of Castlevania teased a brand new entry for the Lords of Shadows series and revealed that Mercury Steam will not be developing it.
Talking about the many lessons Konami learned (as it relates to performance capture), Mr. Cox stated, “We have to really plan differently and do things differently. And we’ve made mistakes on this one, as well, which we’re going to hopefully improve for the next one. I think it’s a learning process and I think game developers are learning every day how to do things better.”
As for why Mercury Steam won’t develop the new game, Mr. Cox simply said that the developer has nothing more to say in the universe. He added, “I think if you’ve got something to say, you should just say it, and when you’re done, just shut up. And we’ve got something to say. And once it’s out there…I think it’s time for somebody else; somebody younger, a younger producer to come in and take up the mantle and do what they think would be right for Castlevania and for us to move on to something else.”
