Not too long ago, God of War director Cory Barlog confirmed that the forthcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive will not have a Season Pass, but he failed to elaborate further as to what the game’s plans were for DLC. While fans would surely like to learn if the title intends on providing expansion materials, it’s safe to say they would rather know its official release date first. Speaking of which, a recent listing on Amazon for a Collector’s Edition of the game could point to a launch in April.
As seen in the screenshot below of Amazon’s listing for a God of War Collector’s Edition, Sony and Santa Monica Studio’s PlayStation 4 exclusive could potentially become available on April 20, 2018, which lands on a Friday. This isn’t the standard placeholder date being given, so there’s a chance that it could be accurate. Of course, it’s also important to take this information with a grain of salt until the official announcement is given.
For those unaware, this retail listing appears to be a totally separate one from the recently revealed God of War Stone Mason Edition, as it costs $150, whereas the Collector’s Edition on Amazon is priced at $130. But with no images or descriptions to go on, there’s no telling what makes the Collector’s Edition from Amazon different from the Stone Mason Edition. In short, the reason for the price difference is anyone’s guess.
Taking all of this into consideration, there have been countless release date leaks since God of War‘s official announcement at E3 2016, and this listing on Amazon is just another date to consider as a possibility. And with God of War easily being one of the most highly anticipated games in recent memory, fans are likely fatigued by all of the potential launch times being shared by leaks and various retailers. So, hopefully we will soon learn when the Ghost of Sparta’s next adventure officially begins.
God of War is currently in production for PlayStation 4 and is expected to release at some point in early 2018.
