The creator of God Of War suggested there are five games planned, according to a recent interview.
Cory Barlog was talking to the gamer’s guide website Kotaku when he said, in his head, he wanted to create five more games.
God Of War is an action-adventure, hack and slash, mythology-based video game series, which debuted back in 2005 on the PlayStation 2.
In an interview with Kotaku, Barlog was asked how much of the future game plan he had mapped out in his head.
He simply replied:
However, he did also take to Twitter to suggest it was a throwaway comment and not confirmation at all.
During the interview, he also revealed the new God of War took five years to make, so if it continued at this rate, it would take 25 years to see the full set surely?
No. I want to figure out how to make these things faster, man.
If Fortnite is more your ‘bag’, you may be interested to know being a skilled gamer could well land you a university place.
Not only is Fortnite a fun game to spend time playing, it also requires strong abilities in logic and creativity if you want to succeed – and this is something Ashland University in the US has picked up on.
The Ohio based university has, this week, announced a brand new scholarship for particularly talented players, with try outs for the Ashland Eagles starting in Fall 2018.
Scholarships will be worth up to $4,000 in tuition and are available for both existing and prospective students. These lucky students will also get the chance to compete on a team representing Ashland University.
As well as Fortnite, this program will also include coaching for Overwatch, Rocket League, Counter-Strike and League of Legends.
Don’t go buying your college sweater just yet though. As well as level of player skill, applicants will also be assessed on their academic record.
So you’ll have had to have squeezed in a few maths classes in between your gaming sessions.
I actually dont even have words for how my fortnite games have gone today. I think I've died in every concievable way possible.
Gonna have to think of some way to show just how terrible this was.

Incoming head coach Josh Buchanan – whose background is in StarCraft II eSports – told Variety:
I think ‘Fortnite’ has a lot of room for players to get creative,
There’s a lot of teamwork in [the game’s core building mechanic] that’s really untapped. A lot of players kind of do fancy stuff, and it looks cool, but it might not be the most efficient.
I think it’s a game that, due to how creative you can be, there’s a lot of potential to get really, really skilled in the game.
Ashland university is offering scholarships for fortnite players??? Bruh y’all cut my ACADEMIC scholarship to ‘save money’ but yet offer scholarships for video gamers?…

Buchanan also spoke about the appeal of this fitness intensive program:
As part of the program, you’re going to have coaches and a staff dedicated to helping you succeed — not only in the game but also in your academics,
Helping to make sure that you have a good social life, and that your physical fitness is on point.
All of our athletes are going to have access to our fitness facilities and trainers.
And Ashland is known for putting a lot of focus on the individual and having a lot of one-on-one sessions with professors, or small group sessions, to really make sure that we’re personally invested in the students’ success.
Pretty sure it’ll be one heck of a popular class.
