The future of the Castlevania series, beyond this winter's Lords of Shadow 2, has yet to be decided, according to series producer Dave Cox.
"What happens with Castlevania after [Lords of Shadow] is not clear, but we hope to leave it in the best of health for those who come after us," Cox said on Twitter.
"When I said we are done with Castlevania, it's because we want to move forward with MercurySteam on a new project in a new universe," he said.
If the Castlevania series does move forward, Cox said he believes it is time for "somebody younger; a younger producer to come in and take up the mantle," though no studios were named outright.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 launches this winter for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
