Castlevania: Lords of Shadow developers Mercury Steam have expressed ambivalence over continuing to make Castlevania titles going forward.
Producer Dave Cox suggested that the studio wanted to be known for more than Castlevania titles, although he admitted it would be hard to walk away from.
“This conversation has come up many times," Cox told Nintendo Life. "Right now, we are committed to bringing this story to a close and then we want to try something new.
“Would we come back if their was the demand? It’s hard to answer right now; on the one hand we don’t want to be known as “the Castlevania studio”, we have big ambitions but we also know that there are a large number of people who love the Lords of Shadow series.
“My head says “No, time to move on” but my heart says otherwise. Perhaps it’s time for a new perspective from a new creative team?”
