God of War III PS3 Bound, Barlog Leaves Sony 37

Gamespot is reporting big news in the God of War world today. Fans of the series will be happy to know that the company has confirmed the next game will be released on the PlayStation 3. At the same time, the company also announced that God of War II producer Cory Barlog is no longer with SCEA. "Barlog's departure remains shrouded in mystery. So far, he has shared no information about his future plans on his personal blog, where he last posted in mid-October. His exit comes just under four months after God of War series creative director, David Jaffe announced he was leaving SCEA's employ after 14 years."

    > When Peter Molyneax left Bullfrog and EA made a valient attempt at Dungeon Keeper 2 and Populous whatever.

    Dungeon Keeper 2 was more of a face lift, but was otherwise an excellent game and what DK1 should have been. Shame that it doesn't run on XP (for more than 5 minutes at a time anyway). Populous: The Beginning was a rather different game, but excellent on its own merits.

    What did Molyneaux bestow on us in the meantime? Black and White, a virtual pet with a mediocre RTS tacked on and a control scheme that hates normal people. Fable, a story of great myth and superreal fantasy -- those adjectives are to describe the marketing, of what was otherwise a standard action/console RPG with no really coherent plot.

    I miss Bullfrog too, but it's clear that Bullfrog was not Molyneaux alone.
