God of War 4 has leaked online via a placeholder box art and teaser trailer
Sony now confirm game is on the way
Titled God of War: Ascension, the game's box art depicts series mainstay Kratos, apparently struggling to break free from chains.
The box art is accompanied on the leaky Amazon page by a short trailer, and what we safely presume is a placeholder release date of December 31, 2013.
Evidence of an imminent God of War 4 reveal has been piling up for some time now. The unannounced game has appeared on a number of CVs and been listed by multiple retailers.
Sony then teased an announcement for late this week.
Recently a retailer attending Sony's invite-only Destination PlayStation event teased an imminent God of War reveal through Twitter. This same retailer also said a kart racing game based on the LittleBigPlanet franchise was on the way, and we all know how that turned out.
Ready at Dawn, the studio behind the numerous excellent PSP God of War titles, is currently working on a new project. Although it's believed to be for next-gen systems a PlayStation Vita entry in the series could be on the cards too.
