Many have wondered when we might see the next God of War , primarily because developer Sony Santa Monica said they'd be taking a break from the franchise after God of War III .
But GoWIII launched back in March 2010, so maybe it's time to start sniffing around for rumors and evidence concerning the next action extravaganza.
We've seen some job listings in the past but nothing like this: a reader has sent us a link to New Zealand retailer Mighty Ape , and this clearly shows God of War IV with an estimated launch date of September 28, 2012. Now, that could be just a placeholder date or a flat-out mistake, and let's not forget that it isn't a US source. However, September of next year doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility, although it'd be breaking the franchise's tradition of releasing new installments in March. We'd love to think it's actually accurate…
Recently, we asked if GoWIV should have a different character and setting ; perhaps that question will be answered before the end of the year. Either that, or Sony will wait to announce it at a big gaming event.
