Konami on New Castlevania

According to Konami Exec Dave Cox, the next Castlevania is so different from the previous versions it wasn't even called Castlevania .
"It was quite a radical departure from what had gone before with Castlevania and there was a little bit of nervousness that perhaps it wouldn’t be accepted as a Castlevania game,"
"As this was quite a big departure from what people knew about Castlevania, senior management took the decision that we were going to announce it as Lords of Shadow, see what the reaction is, and if it’s a good one then this would become a fully-fledged Castlevania."
