After a premature leak last night, Sony has officially announced God of War: Ascension, revealing the new game director and when we’ll hear more.
On the PS Blog, the new director is revealed as Todd Papy, from Sony Santa Monica, who said:
I’m sure your mouth is watering for more, but unfortunately I have to leave you with that for now. Be sure to tune in to PlayStation.Blog and God of War: Ascension on Facebook on Monday, April 30th at 8am Pacific Time for a live streaming event that will give you a glimpse of what’s in store for God of War: Ascension. I’ll also be answering your questions about the game, so follow @PlayStation on Twitter and Tweet us your best questions by 3pm Pacific Time this Friday — be sure to include #godofwarascension in your Tweet so we can find it (we’re expecting a lot of questions!) If we pick your question to ask during the show, we’ll even send you a signed God of War: Ascension poster.
Thanks and see you on April 30th! There is much more to come.
The US PS site’s game database lists the game as having a “Spring 2013” release. Spring officially starts on March 20th, so that would line up with previous GOW games.
Be sure to tune into PSLS on the 30th to find out what’s been revealed.
