Could New God Of War Be Closer Than We Think?


God of War: Ascension released for the PS3 back in March 2013, but could a new, next-gen edition of the series be coming soon?

One company working on a major unannounced game for the PS4 is developer SCE Santa Monica (as revealed back at Gamescom in August), and while there are plenty of rumors about what the game could be and whether or not it could be a new IP, it may in fact be a new game in the popular franchise.

According to a source close to the situation, Gamesided has learned that a new God of War is “closer than many people think.” While he wasn’t clear just when the new game would be announced, he was adamant that it is coming sooner rather than later.

So when could a new God of War be announced? Well, there are a couple times over the next month or so for it to happen.

As everyone knows, the PlayStation 4 officially releases on Friday, November 15. To prepare everyone for the launch on the console, Sony has partnered with Spike TV to broadcast “PS4 All Access” Thursday night starting at 11pm ET.

The event will give fans an inside look at everything PS4 as well as, according to GameTrailer TV’s Geoff Keighleyreveals of previously unannounced titles.

There is also the Video Game Awards coming in December which would be another prime spot for a new installment of the franchise to be announced. It could also come during a down time in the industry in early 2014 as a way to make sure all the talk is about the game.

Though an announcement could very well be coming soon, we don’t know for sure when it will be coming. What we do know, however, is that when it does, it will be real and it will be spectacular.

Gamesided attempted to contact SCE Santa Monica for comment, but, as expected, the company said it had no comment on the matter at this time.

    This article is pure speculation if the “source” isn’t going to go on a limb and provide some sort of actual information.

    I could do the same article and replace God of War with Half Life 3 and it would be just as accurate.

    The fact is Sony Santa Monica hired Michael Angeli (Battle Star Galactica writer) to pen a story for game that is not God of War (likely Stig Asmussen’s new IP).

    Angeli refused to give more details about the unannounced project but confirmed it was not a new God of War title.

    Well the PlayStation Vita is due a God of War game, I expect it to release in 2014 and it will be developed by another studio.

    Ready At Dawn are busy with The Order 1866, Sony Santa Monica (team Stig Asmussen) are working on a new IP and SSM (team Cory Barlog) have just started working on God of War IV so that won’t release until at least March 2016.
