- The God of War franchise is one of the most prized exclusive IPs of PlayStation.
- As per a new rumor, the original God of War trilogy could be receiving the remaster treatment.
- Take this with a grain of salt, since the news is only a far-fetched rumor at this point.
Santa Monica Studio just got done with releasing Valhalla, a free DLC for God of War Ragnarok and practically a massive gift to fans of the series, and now, it appears that the developer has already has its vision clear for the next step in the franchise series. As per Shpeshal_Nick, a trusted industry insider, the original God of War three games are getting remastered for PlayStation.
For reference, skip to the 1:55:35th timestamp in the following video, where Nick talks about the God of War trilogy remaster bit, speaking to the rest of the folks on the XboxEra podcast.
I for a long time have been a person who has bemoaned the direction God of War went and have yearned for the hack-and-slash OG God of War games. I just love them so much.”
Nick continued while being unsure of the rumored remaster trilogy’s release schedule, “And I heard that we might be getting the OG God of War trilogy remastered on PlayStation. I’m not a 100% sure if it’s announced 2024 or maybe released 2024.”
It bears mentioning here no official word regarding the matter has been dropped as of yet, so take this information with a pinch of salt as you move forward. Come next year, though, it is possible that we end up hearing an announcement from Santa Monica, but for now, there’s no comment on the matter. Nick also cannot put his finger down on whether this trilogy will strictly be a port, or more on the side of a remake as well.
The other thing I’m not clear on and I want to get more detail on, is this a straight-up port of what we got on PS3—in which case I’m somewhat less excited—or is this something a little more involved, more in the remake realm.”
In case you missed it, God of War 3, the third mainline game in the franchise, originally came out for the PlayStation 3 in 2010 but was ported to the PlayStation 4 five years later in the name of a remaster, boasting significantly improved visuals, and a host of other features, including a photo mode. The other two classic God of Wars haven’t been revised, though, with both tracing their releases to 2005 and 2007 respectively.
