God of War 3 could have become an FPS

Art director wanted change of perspective

Word has it that God of War 3 could have been turned into a first-person shooter, according to word from Sony this afternoon.

According to a new interview with the CGSociety, Sony art director Ken Fieldman lobbied for the game to be made into an FPS, but was eventually knocked back by director Stig Asmussen.

"I tried unsuccessfully to convince [Director] Stig to make'God of War III' a first-person shooter," Fieldman confirms.

"Kratos could have some truly badass huge weapons that rip gods to shreds. Unfortunately he didn't see the genius in the idea."

God of War 3 will land in March of next year.
