I remember when GoW 2018 came out, Cory had an interview with Daily Star where he said that next he will be working on a new IP for Sony, but that has the story for GoW mapped out in his head, as in, he knows where it will go next (he did say that even if he's not directing the next one, the story will pretty much be his vision/what he had in mind).
Only just clocked it says SIE rather than SSM. Maybe it’s a new role over seeing a wider range of projects?
Him, Richard Gaubert and Matt Sophos have said they ended up writing like 2-3 games worth of story before realize it's too much for 1 game and focusing in on Kratos and Atrues. So it's at least been planned out.
Who said he's not making the sequel? do they even have enough people for 2 teams if he is going to make a new ip?
No, because his last name is Barlog, not Balrog. Incidentally, there is at least one version of SF2 that incorrectly pronounces the name as Barlog.
Cory Barlog said:"This next image was not actually in the original presentation. I would just do a verbal description of this, but I added it in, so there's a couple of images I had to switch out to make this thing work. But I would talk about was the idea that all the mythologies of the world are kind of like this Hubble telescope image. They are like galaxies individually spread out throughout a complete universe, and the world is the universe, and all the mythologies are sort of origin stories of various cultures throughout the world beginning at the beginning of time and stretching all the way out so at any given time all the mythologies exist together concurrently, and they are simply separated by geography. So it was important because some people had the conception that 'hey, Kratos at the end of God of War III destroyed the world!' Well he destroyed what they believed the world was in Greece, which was their world. Everybody believed their world was the only world, in fact we still believe that today."
