God of War 4 could be coming in 2012. That is of course if a recent listing posted by a New Zealand based retailer holds any weight. Mighty Ape recently posted a listing for God of War 4, with a 2012 release date attached as a guide for consumers.
This isn’t the first we’ve heard about God of War 4. There have been rumors circulating about the development ever since a Sony Santa Monica job listing surfaced that was hiring for an unannounced God of War game.
The reports are somewhat conflicting at this point. While God of War 4 seems like a natural next step for the developer, they’ve been vocal about the conclusion of the trilogy in their 2010 release. Could it be a spinoff of the classic franchise, or will SSM throw caution to the wind and continue with a fourth title?
It’s all just rumors and speculation at this point, but the established online retailer seems to think we’ll be seeing something as early as next year.
