Director of God of War wants to make a new IP

Barlog: I would like to create something of my own

Cory Barlog is an outstanding director in the video game industry whose vision has been key in games like God of War (2018), God of War II, God of War: Chains of Olympus and Tomb Raider. However, something that has been missing in his career is to create a franchise of his own and, as you imagine, it is something he wants to do.

In an interview with Skill Up, the mind behind the new God of War revealed his desire to create a new IP: "I would really love to create something of my own the next time, something that comes 100% from my original vision. I'll have to see if I can convince Sony about it, "he said.

Now, although Barlog is eager to start an original project, the reality is that he believes that before doing so it is important to take a well-deserved rest. "The first thing on the menu is a long break. I will disappear from the world for 1 or 2 months. I want to spend a lot of time with my son and my wife to rebuild what I probably broke with my obsession with [ God of War ]. "

In the same talk, Barlog explained that one of the secrets of his success as a creative is not being afraid to take risks. So, although there are times when you may doubt your vision, you know that your responsibility is to be safe and reflect that to your development team.

"As a creative, in any industry, you are your biggest critic and doubt is something that prevents you from taking risks (...) As a creative, I am full of doubts and I have to project [the opposite] to the team. I always tell them that they do not have to worry, that what we do is good and that they believe in it. "
