Kratos returns to PS2

Sony will release a God of War sequel for PS2, backing up rumours sparked by a set of leaked details last month.

While Sony has yet to make an official announcement, God of War 2 is all but confirmed, according to US magazine Game Informer - which features God of War 2 on its latest cover - and suggestions are that it will appear in February next year - giving the ageing PS2 an all-action revival.

Series creator, David Jaffe, will not helm the sequel's development, but with such a strong personality already set in gaming stone it'd be hard for God of War 2 to be anything but brilliant. We hope. We'll have more info for your eyes very soon.
