Jaffe halts "crying" game
Writing in his blog, the director of God of War says that he's temporarily abandoned his project for a PSP game meant to wring sadness out of gamers. "The core reason is that it was very ambitious and so was/is WarHawk," he says. "The same developer is making both games (with some key members shared between both games) so Scott (head of Incog) and I said: f--- it. We'll do HL later...maybe." Instead, Jaffe and his team have spent the last six to seven months working on a PS3 game which should ship sometime between November and January. "It has stuff in common with TWISTED METAL, BOMBERMAN, and...well, a few other things that I ain't gonna talk about yet!" He will say that the game is supposed to be "shorter" and "less expensive," which is likely why he'll be able to finish it in less than a year.
