God of War III cost $44m to make

"That's right within budget."

Sony Santa Monica's God of War III cost a massive $44 million to make, according to director of product development John Hight.

"We are stamping discs now, so we're effectively done, just got a couple of countries that we're finishing up on this week, and we've spent $44 million on God of War III," Hight told Giant Bomb.

"Believe it or not, that's right within budget." All that and they still had to ditch the epilogue.

It was money well spent by all accounts, however, including our account. Check out our 9/10 God of War III review to see what we made of it. The game's due out on 19th March.
