God of War director wants to work on a Castlevania game next

Nearly a decade after Konami last visited the franchise, long-time Santa Monica Studio dev and God of War: Ragnarok director, Eric Williams, just let it be known to get a shot at a Castlevania game.

After proving himself with God of War: Ragnarok, we don't think Sony will mind throwing him a bone and calling up Konami to see if they're open to licensing Castlevania for a game or two to Sony.

If there's one thing we've come to learn about Konami in these past few years, it's that they're now more open to licensing opportunities. 

Castlevania is one of Konami's best IPs but it hasn't been in the best shape in more than a decade.

We don't think that giving the keys to Castlevania to Williams and Santa Monica Studio will put the franchise in a worse position. 

Konami will benefit a lot from a potential partnership with the first-party Sony studio and the game ends up selling well.
