While the team at Santa Monica Studio remains silent on the exact release date, Game Informer spoke with creative director Cory Barlog and studio head Shannon Studstill about how much is left to accomplish before the game hits store shelves.
Still hoping for March release. Either way, I’ll have SotC and Dissidia NT to keep me busy until this. Yet another great start for PS4 👌🏼
Yeah, I hope for March too. I just can't wait anymore for this game. The possibility of a new God of War was one of the reasons I bought my PS4.
March 22nd fellas... Bank on it.
By Jan i am expecting an Announcement with the game going Gold..
Rumor of Super Bowl commercial and announcement.
The year is already starting off well with early releases I think 2018 will smash 2017 in the face
The picture is a good fit of how many Twitter users are asking Cory Barlog for the release date.
I am going to say that this game will come out in April or June the latest. If it was really coming out in March They should already prepare to announce a release date sometime this month. I feel they are going to announce it maybe in February.
Too many hints point to March. Few retailers having March 22nd, especially the PSN store before removed. The anniversary of the first game releasing the same day. We'll most likely get a release date next week. I called up EBGames (our Canadian GameStop) and asked if the Collector's Edition is coming to Canada, and the women said "No, all I know is that the game is coming out in March" Also, a Collector's Edition Prima Guide was added on Amazon this week. https://www.amazon.com/God-...
God of War 1 - March 22 2005 God of War 2 - March 13 2007 God of War 3 - March 16 2010 God of War Ascension - March 12 2013 These guys really like march.
It’s the month named after the Roman God of War.
Oh nice... That's a good little trivia.
Also 22nd March 2018 is a Thursday and according to Norse Myth the word Thursday came from "THOR"
They may decide not to release in march since it's a "different" god of war game (I really hope not though)
@Dialga, but kratos was greek and the greek gow was aries. Your sill correct though.
As Dialgamarine mentioned Mars was the specific Roman God of War that the month of March was named after https://en.m.wikipedia.org/... Twas the month of farming and warfare.
I think they will announce it during the Superbowl
Will likely be a Super Bowl commercial or something.
When is that for uk dudes ?
@Ashunderfire86 "I am going to say that this game will come out in April or June the latest." June? Not a chance. Red Dead Redemption 2 will be out on July 12th according to an Amazon leak. Sony has the marketing rights so God of War in June is a definelly no!
It's pretty much guaranteed for march at this point. It'll be announced any day now.
We have waited a lot of years for new gow, they should make sure it's as much as polished and perfect as possible. I loved gow 4 since i watched the first trailer even though I'm an old fan of the series and finished all previous games for several times i think all thess changes they have made has improved gow to a very higher level.
Exactly, I'm fine with them taking their time and polishing it up. This is a complete change in direction for them so I'm sure they're just trying to make sure they nail it right out of the gate. Too many games release too soon now because of being pushed out by unrealistic release dates and end up buggy messes for the day one buyers that end up needing multiple patches. I'm an OG GOW fan myself and I loved all their old games (yes, even Ascention), so I'm really looking forward to seeing their new take on the series.
Anytime now...anytime now.
Lets get a surprise February launch!
I bet late march.
I have a feeling Sony will have another PS conference in February. And maybe we'll see a new trailer with a release date.
Is it just me or is it weird how often Shannon brings up how much she and Balrog has butted heads? I've seen/read her say it at least 6 times, but of course always with the twist of "it's worth it in the end".
I can tell they want to release it in March. I bet Sony has a lineup already planned for the year with Days Gone, Spidey, and a bunch of other titles they dont want God of War to interfere with (regarding sales). I wouldn't be surprised if once this release date is final, we will have the others real soon to follow. This is going to be one hell of a year for PS gamers but I bet the priority now is Kratos. I'm sofa king pumped for this. When your gaming year STARTS with a God of War title, you KNOW it's going to be a good year. March is my birthday too, I hope it hits March in the worst way.
"how are people going to react?" the entitled whiners will react the way they always do, Bitchh and complain about bull4hit. man he looks tired.
Usually games need 4 to 6 months of marketing but I feel like they will announce the release date during the SB and it will come out March 22nd These is sort of a reset for the franchise whole moving forward at the same time so it's fitting for it to come out the same date as the original game Also with cory having played the game multiple times my thinking is they are in the bug testing process and putting the finishing touches on the game I think Sony would be smart to advertise the game during SB multiple times(atleast 2 if not 3) to have a lot of exposure
I love Cory Barlog's sarcastic disposition.
2 or 3 more years he said haha
Come on Superbowl commercial!!!
It’s gotta be March. No doubt about it.
I think they assume that they can announce a release date a month before it releases because people already want it.
cory and GI are trolling hard, i think the date is soon
That Game Informer cover is great! I can't wait to play GOW and I hope it is out in March although if it took a few months longer, I wouldn't mind as I would rather the game was as good as the devs can make it. I still have a backlog of games to get through so the wait isn't too bad.
Great interview by people you can tell are passionate about and love their project and that can only translate into an amazing game experience, cant wait!
Can't wait for it:)))
Well, they did say "Early 2018". I'm thinking March too.
For me is march,the game is finish to the complete and maybe soon the date very soon.
Is this year even for real? Hurry up with my GOW please. Lots to do in 2018, and when SM comes out imma call off work a couple days with the umm flu I think.
I love this franchise and I am scared. I have a bad feeling the kid is annoying and will ruin the game for alot of fans. I pray I am not right.
Badass. I have friends that have been working on this. Can’t wait to experience their hard work (and for free, thanks hookups).
Excellent! its really comming soon!
I just want an EPIC storyline . I’m so there
My back log is still insanely huge, so please take as much time as you want making this game amazing. There is definitely no shortage of quality games out already and coming out 2018, so there should be no reason to rush this.
They all quit their jobs
