Some dirty liars had God of War fans excited about a Netflix show based on the critically-acclaimed game from Sony Santa Monica, and while its director has confirmed no such show is in the works, that could apparently change.
The What’s On Netflix directory site recently posted an article killing the fan speculation that a God of War series was on the horizon. God of War game director Cory Barlog commented on the Twitter post of the article, confirming its accuracy, but he followed up his comment with a shoutout to Netflix that the two studios should make it happen.
True. This is not happening.

This is certainly no confirmation that such a series will ever happen, but it should give some hope to those who were shot down by the revelation. Said fans can also take solace in the likelihood that Jason Momoa—the Justice League actor who was falsely confirmed to star as Kratos in the fake Netflix series—could take up the mantle of the god-killer, given his documented interest in the character.
If God of War does end up getting its own Netflix spinoff, it will have to share the space with another popular game series. CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher series will see a TV adaptation hit the streaming service with an eight-episode first season, slated to land sometime in 2020. Perhaps this show will serve as a helpful template for getting a God of War adaptation up and running.
