It looks like that God of War IV might be real as a resume for one Timothy Williams has somehow reached the online space and Siliconera. He has worked on Conan the Barbarian (the 2011 film), Rise of the Argonauts, and DOTA2, so he has been quite busy recently. This is following what was said in Playstation Magazine, which pinpointed a date mid-2012 and rumours of 2 player co-op, featuring Demios, Kratos’ brother, as the second player.
It is not surprising the God of War is seeing a fourth release, but are we seeing the beginning of a new story? Don’t forget, it was revealed that III would be the last in that trilogy, but more God of War games would be created. There is no point not making these games, considering they are extremely popular and actually fun to play. Hopefully Kratos also makes it to the Playstation Vita, considering his portable outings were critically acclaimed.
