A little while back, we learned that Sony would be announcing a big new title on April 19 .
The prevailing theory is that it's God of War IV , which makes perfect sense. The teaser image certainly hints at the revered franchise, the timing is just about right, and analyst Michael Pachter is "100%" certain that both GoWIV for PS3 and a new series entry is in the works for the PlayStation Vita.
Therefore, we've been scrounging around trying to find out more info. On a whim, we decided to contact a few local GameStops to see if they knew anything about it (even if they're not always the best source). Interestingly enough, one employee told us that in fact, God of War IV is indeed going to be announced next week, and not only that, it'll be slated to launch in March 2013. Oh, and it'll be a prequel, too, which might make sense considering the storyline in GoWIII (don't worry, no spoilers here).
That sort of fits, as each of the last two entries have released in March. The fun part was that as soon as this guy said all this, I heard someone in the background say something (couldn't quite make out what); after which, the employee sort of backed off and said they "don't really know anything yet." So maybe his manager told him to stop spouting off nonsense that isn't true, or maybe he told him to shut his trap because he's not supposed to talk about GoWIV…
We're not about to judge. We're just here to tell you what we heard.
