The long-awaited announcement of God of War‘s release date may be almost (finally) upon us, as one Sony producer recently hinted.
Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan and Asia localization producer Chris Ashimine was recently interviewed for the Japanese magazine Weekly Famitsu, during which he discussed the localization of the upcoming action adventure game. Ashimine also used the interview to express his belief that the development team would announce the game’s release date soon. It is unclear if this information is based on personal speculation or insider knowledge, but it’s more than we had before, so we’ll take it.
A recent leak on the PlayStation Store listed the game’s release date as March 22nd, which would align with the developer’s promise of an early 2018 release date. If that is in fact launch day, it is strange that fans have yet to hear anything solid, considering it’s currently early 2018.
God of War was recently featured as the cover story of the latest issue of Game Informer, but even that massive article gave us no new information on the game’s release. Fans learned about the game’s lack of a jump function, what mythologies future installments might focus on, and the fact that Sony originally had no intentions of making a new God of War game, but nothing was conveyed in the story about when exactly we can expect to see it.
Whenever God of War does launch, it will come exclusively to the PlayStation 4.
