While responding to fans Cory Barlog revealed that he was excited as he had just finished the first full play through with the Leads. You Can See the Tweet attached below.
Yes ! Now's that's good. One step at the time.
I smell a 2017 release. Colin and Greg (and many others) were quick to dismiss it as a 2018 game just because the reveal trailer didn't have a date attached, without taking into account that Sony are just being more careful about dates from now on.
Yep. I'm still looking at October 2017 unless Playstation gamers are lucky enough to get an August 2017 announcement at E3 2017. ^_^
@igivehugs you just know it would get delayed to feb 2018 lol sony loves delaying to feb. not hating just find it funny that so many big exclusives get delayed to feb from october of the previous year.
Colin and Greg's predictions are laughable. I started to go off their brand of critique as soon as Colin started misinforming people about the PS4 Pro and not stepping up and admitting his mistake when called out with facts. His stupid pronouncements continue when he recently said "I don't see how TLG wouldn't work on the PS3". He's been a professional journalist for so long and now people are paying his independent ass thousands of dollars a month to neglect the facts. That is what annoys me more, is that I know Colin is a discerning, really clever guy, but he just doesn't care about the facts in the job that he's in. And what is their particular reasoning in their continued cheap shots at Gravity Rush 2? I'm just not a fan anymore. Greg is just basically just a yes man to Colin at this point. Easy Allies deserve my attention more because they are REAL and don't misinform their audience, disappear up their asses or make things up to stroke their own inflated egos.
Interesting. It might be closer to release than we think I guess.
Yup those were my initial thoughts as well, I guess when the trailer does reach the 15 million mark, they might just announced the release date or some other major development
Nah he said in one of his tweets that it wont be something crazy.
@zivtheawesome Yeah read that still think though it will be something significant
We'll have to wait and see.
Just remember, it will go through at least one level of consumer private testing and based on feedback could be pushed back a lot. An internal completion is likely the pre alpha run without any consumer playtesting. I'm fairly certain one of the most used phrases was 'we are still working on that.'
Yeah Cory confirmed there was still some stuff to shoot as well. I think they are at a stage where the core game is probably locked but requires a lot of polish and tuning. They are most likely still using a lot of placeholder assets etc.
I agree with what you are saying , and it is more than likely a pre-alpha run
Doubt its a pre-alpha. Betas, real betas (not the one's companies call a beta but are in reality an advertisement) are the point where everything is in the game and functioning to some degree. Those allow a degree of play. I have never seen a pre-alpha, a real one, in which you could conduct a full playthrough.
Well many of us thought it was not too far away too. :) In any way people spin it i.e. in alpha blah blah. This is very good news.
Hope to see more come E3.
Wow much further along than I thought. Still think it's an early 2018 game.
PS4 Pro/GoW4 bundle vs Xbox Scorpio... Coming soon: Holiday 2017 @JMaine, True but you can play RDR2 on Xbox Scorpio aswell. And the game will sell well on Xbox..if last gen and current GTA V and even Rdr bc sales is anything to go by. I just like my dream scenario better....
Don't forget PS4 Pro Red Dead Redemption 2 bundle
@J That's going to be sweet and a big system seller.
Both of those games are 2018 bound I bet. RDR2 with a higher chance of 2017. Microsoft should try to clutch the bundle for that though if they are smart.
why so many disagrees lol
Well, let's just say his comment was very questionable. Edit : @Frinker Well, let's just say it can be hypocritical.
@ucforce In what way is it questionable? lol...
what does "through the Leads" mean? english isn't my native language and can't find the meaning on the internet. EDIT: thanks everyone for answering.
playthrough its a typo, means he and the leads have gone through the game from start to finish.
they finished the "play through" with the leads
leads as in leaders of game development
yep that's what i was looking for, thanks!
Based on this, there may be a possibility of a holiday 2017 release.
wouldn't that be awesome
Wow, it's further along than I thought
Although God of War games typically have been released late in Q1 (March) I am betting on Sony releasing this next fall in a nice PS4 Pro bundle to counter Scorpio. Q1 2017 Sony has Zero Dawn, they may have Spiderman in Q2 or Q3 and God of War would be the ultimate stop gap against Scorpio in Q4. Sometime in 2018 they will have The Last of Us Part II. The wild card is Final Fantasy VII Remake which would also be a good counter to Scorpio.
i think spiderman would release 2018 not 2017 but agreed on anything else.
I would say that they would released this after E3.
The mainline Uncharted games on PS3 were all Fall window releases, yet the 4th on PS4 came out in Spring, I don't think SCEI and their devs are working a particular schedule for their established franchises, but GoW does carry it's own weight like Uncharted. Back when PS4 GoW was revealed and Cory got questioned about when it would release he basically said it's not far off, made it seem like 2017 was happening, same thing for Detroit, David Cage didn't give specific dates, but eluded to next year. I wouldn't be shocked if Marvel wanted Spidey out near to Homecoming's cinematic release (that's July 2017) and Bend would likely want to avoid going up against The Last of Us Part II, which is probably either Fall 2018 or Q1/2 in 2019.
Damn really?? I was expecting 2018 but man if it's playable start to finish 2017 looking likely.
Very good news. This game is much further along then I thought. They were almost done with the mocap and now the game is fully playable, hell yes! I still think early 2018 and we'll get a full blowout of this game at e3.
On one hand, I want this new God of War game to come out as soon as possible. On the other, I love the GoW series, and absolutely want the new one to be the best it can be, so I want the devs to take their time with it. Damn. I don't care if it comes out 2017 or 2018, I care that it's as amazing or more than past GoW games. Rock along, Cory and team! <3
Very happy to hear this as the game currently is playable from start to finish. It doesn't mean however that everything is already in it. Maybe they still need to put cut-scenes in, or they could make some tweaks and possibly add new areas. We never know. Regardless I'm glad to see it is coming along well. Lets hope it releases in Q4 2017.
All the shooting s already done they said a few days ago. I wasn't expecting them to announce these two awesome news already. Edit. They said mo cap shooting was 'almost' done
While I doubt the first playthrough means 2017 for sure, it may be possible to hit a November or December release. I think they will release by March 2018 in any case.
Alright. Take your time and polish and just add great side content!
I have no complaints. Sony's upcoming roster for 2017/2018 looks stupendous. My backlog is already killing me...so many quality titles still to play, and Horizon Zero Dawn and Nier:Automata are right around the corner. Oh my....
Maybe first half of 2018 depending on what other games will already be slated for then.
Fall 2018, SONY would like to market the game before it releases.
Let me guess, Kratos dies :).
Kratos has died in like almost every game and escaped the clutches of hades each time. I think he'll be fine.
It has a son now :)
Its gonna be amazing! Cant wait for this one
I really hope this is a fall 2017 game
Release date's TBA and there's already a full playthrough. That's a good sign if I've ever seen one. Now it's just polishing and bugfixes before release. At least that's my hope.
Take your time devs no rushes! Can wait till late late late 2017 need to beat the first ones still lol!
either fall 2017 but mostly likely 2018 feb march
I'll always call this game God of War 4 irregardless of what Sony officially labels it
This just might come out in May 2017...Law of attraction anyone?
