It looks like a God of War release date has yet to be officially announced by Sony, though the lead voice actor on the project Christopher Judge has given us a strong indication that the game will be released in 2018. Following the initial debut of the release trailer last year at E3, the clip has amassed over 17 million views on YouTube.
The upcoming game will be the fourth installment of the God of War franchise, seeing the protagonist Kratos teaming up with his son to slaughter more hulking creatures; this time with the lore of the game revolving around Norse mythology.
It was initially rumored that the God of War 4 would hit the shelves later this year, after the game appeared on a Portuguese retailer’s website. Christopher Judge contradicts this rumor after listing ‘God of War (2018)’ on his twitter profile. Funnily enough though, the account has since removed all trace of a release date, most likely indicating that Sony doesn’t want the information to become public knowledge yet; based on these events, although a 2018 release is quite likely, it’s not yet certain.
On Twitter, game director Cory Barlog
gave fans an update about the status of the game’s development, stating that “Its going well. Its a daily emotional meat grinder but i feel very good about what we are doing”. According to COG
and as indicated by the trailer, we can expect a much more advanced combat systems, with an even more immersive environment.
The narrative will see Kratos in a more unconventional role as he seeks to become a better man for the sake of his son. As stated on the official PlayStation website, the title will be released exclusively to the PS4.
