Sony Announces God of War: Ascension

There’s been quite a lot of talk over the past several months about a new entry in the God of War franchise, but the speculation was put to rest today when Amazon got ahead of themselves and added a product listing for a new God of War game.

Rather than playing off the rumor, Sony decided that it would instead go ahead and announce it, and so now we have confirmation that God of War: Ascension, as Sony is calling it, is on the way, and will be released on PlayStation 3 at some point next year.

Not a whole lot was revealed in Amazon’s accidental product listing, and Sony wasn’t willing to share very much in the way of details themselves. We do, however, know that the game will be once again developed by Sony Santa Monica, and that more information is coming this month.

According to the PlayStation Blog, Sony and the devs plan to kick off a live stream on April 30. It’s not clear whether or not any gameplay will be shown on the stream, but the post promises us a “glimpse of what’s in store for God of War: Ascension.”

If you can’t wait until April 30 to see at least something related to God of War: Ascension, Sony also released the game’s debut teaser trailer. Aside from letting us know that the game will be a prequel, the video doesn’t give us all that much to go on.

Still, if you need something to hold you over until more details on God of War: Ascension surface, you can check out the teaser trailer below.
