God of War III’s Stig Asmussen has told CVG that he hopes EA’s upcoming actioner Dante’s Inferno gives God of War III a bit of competition.

“Some of the guys who used to work on GOW are working on Dante’s,” he said. “Really good guys. I hope they make a fantastic game that serves as good competition for us. I think using Dante’s Inferno as a theme could really cook into something special – it is a very rich world to draw from.

“As far as a threat to Kratos goes, I hope so. We need more great games in this genre.”

Other than a few trailers and screens, he had not seen much of the game, but is aware that preliminary thoughts on the title are positive.

Good stuff.
