Since the gameplay debut of God of War 4 at last year’s E3, Sony has been mum on any further details about the game. Fans are starved for details about the franchise’s PlayStation 4 premiere. Fortunately, Kratos’s new voice actor, Christopher Judge may have just given out some key details regarding the game’s release window via his twitter bio.
In the bio, Christopher Judge says “God of War (2017)” implying that the game is set to release later this year. If this is true, we can extrapolate a timeline for how it might play out. At E3 2017 Sony will show more gameplay for God of War 4, then end that segment with its release date. I presume it’s going to be a Fall 2017 and will show off the PS4 Pro’s high-end graphics.
This would fall in line with everything else we’ve heard so far. Back in December of 2016, Cory Balrog, the director of God of War 4, said on twitter that he just completed a playthrough of the game, so we know that it’s at least playable all the way through. If we consider that the tweet was in December of last year, and the predicted release is somewhere between September and November of 2017 then they should have just enough time to finish up.
God of War 4 is intended to be a soft reboot for Kratos’s story. It takes place after the events of God of War 3, but Kratos is no longer anywhere near Mount Olympus. Instead, the game intends to focus on Norse mythology. Kratos has started a new family and now lives with his son, Atreus who he acts as a mentor for. Not much else has been revealed about the upcoming game, but hopefully, we learn more at this year’s E3.
