Kratos returns! If that news surprises you, then you should check out the impressive sales figures for the PlayStation-exclusive God of War games. A fourth console game in the franchise was a fairly obvious next move for developer Santa Monica Studio, and according to a new report out of the UK, the next entry into the series (not counting handheld games) will be released in September of 2012.
According to the UK-based PSM3, the unofficial playstation magazine, sources within Santa Monica Studios have confirmed that work is underway on the new game, and a cinematic trailer should be released soon. The developer had already confirmed that the series would continue, even though the third game was always meant to be the conclusion of a trilogy, so this news makes sense.
Beyond that, details are scarce. If the source is correct, there is no reason to believe that God of War 4 will be anything but a PS3 exclusive. Expect to hear a lot more about this soon—after all, E3 is coming soon…
