According to Sony Santa Monica studio’s director of product development, John Hight, God of War III cost $44 million to make. According to a study, the average cost of producing a current multi-platform game is $18 to 28 million, while a single platform game is said to cost about $10 million. The $10 million number seems to me to be alot less than I believe, especially with such big titles as Heavy Rain, Halo, and Uncharted to name a few. With Modern Warfare Two’s development said to cost $40 to 50 million, and Gran Turismo 5’s reported cost of $60 million, GOW3 is right up there with them near the top. GTA IV is still believed to have cost the most of any game, and said to have cost $100 million. I expect to see more and more money put into these huge games, as more and more people continue to join this generation of gaming.
