It's a shame about Castlevania, but one way to look at it though is Castlevania is really quite lucky, the Aria/Dawn games provide a pretty neat and tidy finale to the series story, the Lords of Shadow games are explicitly their own continuity, which makes it easier to not get upset over them, it's not like Silent Hill which was run into the ground with games ostensibly in the same continuity or Metal Gear where Kojima himself was forced to keep going until he was almost out of ideas and then to have the last entry with him released literally unfinished.
So if all these Konami franchises have to be over, better they go out like Castlevania did than Metal Gear and Silent Hill.
One can make the argument that not every video game series needs to go on forever and ever, Castlevania is one of the few in which you can say there's a pretty definitive "the end" and that beats just petering and out and ending on a cliffhanger like Metal Gear.
