The Sony panel at CES 2024 has brought about an exciting update for a fan-favorite project that everyone seemingly has their eyes on—the television adaptation of PlayStation’s flagship franchise God of War. The President of Sony Pictures Television Katherine Pope came on stage to detail some of the projects that the company is working on, with the reimagining of God of War in television format being one of them.

Katherine, after going over the recent successes of Sony in terms of adapting the likes of The Last of Us, The Uncharted, Gran Turismo, and Twisted Metal to television and movie format, said the following about God of War and Horizon Zero Dawn:

 

We’re also delighted to have writing underway on two new IP-based projects God of War for Prime Video and Horizon Zero Dawn at Netflix. Those are coming along with a few other highly anticipated series, including the fourth season of The Boys, and the final season of Cobra Kai.” 

For those not in the know, the God of War TV adaptation was confirmed to be in the works late in 2022. This was after a long period of rumors and speculation regarding the project, which had the gaming community stirred with anticipation. When the confirmation came forward, so did some crucial details, such as Cory Barlog — the Director of the 2018-released God of War — serving as the adaptation’s Executive Producer.

There have been rumblings about who’s being cast as Kratos in the upcoming God of War television series, with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson being heavily rumored to play the part at one point. Back in June, though, that prospect was shut down by Cory himself, saying, “I have literally never heard anything about this,” in reply to the rumor. 

So, that leaves us with not a lot to go on, quite frankly. The community is still divided on who should carry the mantle of Kratos, with many expressing that it should be none other than Christopher Judge, the voice actor of the character in the reboot, who should be playing the Ghost of Sparta. Given how the guy is more than 6 feet tall and built like a tank, I can’t help but agree with that idea.
