RUMOR: God of War IV in September 2012

A New Zealand retailer may have unveiled the projected release date for Sony's God of War IV. While no official announcement's been made regarding the further adventures of Sony's impossibly angry spokesdeity, webstore Mighty Ape lists the title for pre-order with an “estimated date” of September 2012, even displaying a fan mockup flaming-swords logo for the game. Yep, if (or when) GoW IV comes out, that's probably something that'll be in the game.

While God of War III marked the end of the series' initial trilogy, Sony has said in the past that we haven't seen the last of Kratos and his compatriots in mythic angst yet. Series development home Sony Santa Monica has confirmed it's got plans for where to go next with the series, and is known to be working on undisclosed projects; earlier this year, sources told PSM3 the series' fourth numbered title is in development. If Mighty Ape's prognostications come to pass, you shouldn't have to wait too long before hearing more on the title. Who knows, it could even be revealed at next month's Spike VGA show.

    I hope they do something different with the next God of War game whenever it does come out. 3 was fun, but the formula was starting to ware thin. I only played through Ghost of Sparta once even though I actually liked the story quite a bit more than Chains of Olympus. Ah, we shall see.

    I don't think GOW4 is really a matter of if, but when. I just wonder where they can really go with the series, Kratos has pretty much killed everyone at this point. Maybe he goes on an epic quest to kill himself?

    They just continue GOW until Krato's kills all the Gods ...every where .... Yah Weh included or maybe Kratos IS Yah weh haha , they have similar personalities
