Well, we were kinda hoping against hope that it would arrive in time
for the 2008 holiday season, but that was probably pushing it. Provided
this inside source is correct, God of War III is scheduled for release some time in 2009.
The game’s composer, Cris Velasco,
confirmed the title would release in 2009. Furthermore, the massively
anticipated action title will support full 1080p high-definition
visuals and feature both rumble and motion-sensing from the Sixaxis and
Dual Shock 3. None of that is really surprising, considering we should
be seeing such features on a routine basis by 2009, but they’re still
good to know. Now, if only we could get Sony or the Santa Monica team
to issue a few early details about the game itself, we’d be in
business. Above all else, we basically want God of War II only with better graphics, a new storyline, and perhaps a slightly tweaked gameplay system. But don’t you dare mess it up; it was close to perfect the first two times!
As soon as we hear anything new about God of War III –
anything – we’ll be sure to let you know.
