Considering IGA has left the building and Konami's sorry state, I'd guess the IP is done for. I know Bloodstained will be around to scratch the Castlevania itch, but it's still sad to think the series may be done for.
Is this franchise pretty much dead now?
@arbitrarywater: They're way ahead of you, apparently they're already up to a 3rd one.

Edit: That CG makes it look kind of intense. Too bad that couldn't be anything further from the (highly profitable) truth.
Yep. You want to see something depressing? Look at this:
It starts out OK. Quickly gets super awesome. Then, an inexorable 10 to 15 year decline into mediocrity. Oh Konami, why hast thou forsaken us?!?
Konami will probably make some mobile game, but I don't think a new console/PC game will show up anytime soon. I hope we will some kind of compilation in the future though. If Mega Man Legacy Collection turns out good, maybe Konami will give Other Ocean the rights to make one. Frank Cifaldi would probably be all over that.
I just want one really good collection (or a couple) of the classics - especially if they can get the DS games onto consoles or PC somehow. Or just release the 360 version of SotN onto Steam. Please just let them get some of those classic games out on modern gaming systems before they take the series out back and stuff it into a pachinko machine or an iPhone. Please?
@ezekiel: oh yeah, i forgot about the platforming. I think that RPG, specially with Bloodborne's fast combat mechanics are the most suitable for a 3D Castelvenia game. You just need to change the character building and base it on a Castelvenia character instead of the open system in Bloodborne.
