As previously hinted, the upcoming installment in the God of War series will begin an entirely new saga. That means Kratos’ new story, which sees him leaving the realm of the Greek gods behind in favor of the Norse mythos, will likely take more than a single game to unfold.
God of War for PS4 was first revealed on the Sony stage at E3 2016, but details on the action-adventure title have been slim since its announcement. Following some fan inquiries, game director Cory Barlog recently took to Twitter to elaborate on some specifics surrounding the game’s direction and production.
The first response, stating that the upcoming God of War will begin a “new saga,” reasserts that we can expect more sequels from the revitalized series.
@alexissaavedra4 a new saga is beginning, for sure.

The second tweet suggests the game’s release may be coming in the near future, considering that it has been in development for over three years already.
@AndreaMarioRibo i started on this beast in mid 2013. God, it feels like it has only been a few months.:)

There is no official release date for God of War, but the game will launch exclusively on the PlayStation 4 whenever it arrives. Those waiting for the PlayStation Experience to see something new on the game will have to keep waiting as Barlog previously confirmed the game won’t be making an appearance.
