Sony has yet to announce an official "God of War" release date, although voice actor Christopher Judge has given our strongest hint yet that the title may not see the light of day in 2017. Here are the details.

2017 "God Of War" Update: Voice Actor Teases Release Date

According to PSU, the hotly anticipated PlayStation 4 action title will launch in 2018. The Kratos voice actor listed "God of War" on his profile, having previously suggested the game would hit stores this year. Oddly enough, the Twitter account has now removed any mention of a date, possibly indicating that Sony wants to keep things hush-hush.

Just recently, it was rumored "God of War" would hit stores in September 2017 after it appeared on a Portuguese retailer's website. Furthermore, developer Sony Santa Monica has been drip-feeding fans new details on Twitter, with the game's director, Cory Barlog, suggesting Kratos' latest adventure will have a better storyline than previous entries in the franchise, as reported in Game Radar.

2017 "God Of War" Storyline Details

"God of War" PS4 is the latest installment in Sony's PlayStation-exclusive and bone-breaking action franchise. The game also sees returning anti-hero Kratos teaming up with his young son to slaughter more hulking creatures.

The "God Of War" storyline is also based around Norse mythology. The stoic baldy has learned to somewhat master his rage this time around, and the game promised a substantial single-player campaign although the inclusion of multiplayer currently remains up in the air.

Ps4-Exclusive "God Of War 4" Will Be As Gory As Ever

Isports Times reported that the "God Of War 4" director, Cory Barlog, speaking in response to fans on Twitter as he addressed the prospect of Vikings showing up in Kratos' next adventure, giving us a firm idea of when the game is set. "Our story takes place in a time well before the first Vikings so I don't see them appearing," said Barlog.

Barlog also touched on the series' penchant for bloodshed, confirming God of War won't be holding back when it comes to gore: "I like everything to serve the vision/story/world. I don't see GOW as gore for the sake of gore. It just takes place in a very violent time."
