Oops. Sony's upcoming big reveal of the next God of War release has been scuttled, by retail giant Amazon. The online store is proudly announcing that God of War: Ascension is in the works, with placeholder box-art and a pencilled-in date of "December 31".
Adding insult to injury: Here's the debut trailer for the game.
From the looks of things, God of War: Ascension - the fourth full title in the series - will in fact be a prequel, but we don't know too much about it at this stage. The lack of a "IV" anywhere in the title is a positive sign, plus there's that narration in the trailer...
Join Kratos as he seeks freedom, redemption, and the clarity to avenge his family in the most ambitious God of War adventure in the series so far.
