MercurySteam has said it intends to stop developing Castlevania titles following the launch of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2.
Producer David Cox explained that the studio wishes to leave the series by delivering a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy via the sequel.
"Our intention is to tell our story and then move on to other things. We have a very interesting tale to tell – a story about Dracula. Our intention was to tackle the story from his perspective and give players an angle on his viewpoint.
"We have no intention of milking the series any further than that. I believe that any story worth telling should have a satisfying ending. This one has exactly that, and once its told I hope our audience will enjoy the saga as a unique and interesting take on the Castlevania mythology."
Cox had previously stated that MercurySteam did not want to be known solely as "the Castlevania team", with the developer keen on other "projects and other ideas".
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, meanwhile, launches during 2013.
