With little under a month to go before its release, God of War has officially gone gold. The news was joyfully conveyed by the team over on the PlayStation Blog, and it sounds as though it’s a big achievement for all involved.
Cory Barlog, the game’s director, couldn’t hide his pride in how the project has wound up. And repeatedly thanked the entire team for their commitment.
“This was the scariest, most wonderful thing I have ever done and I can honestly say it would never have been possible without the full-throated support of Sony and the tireless work of the incredible team at Santa Monica Studio,” he said.
“We have been through a lot together and I would not change a thing. You are the best damn team a director could ever hope for and I am thankful beyond words for every ounce of passion and pride you put into this game.”
His enthusiasm does little to calm our inpatient hands; why is there still a month to go? But it does imply that this is a game that could go toe-to-toe with the best of them and even come out trumps. For now we can dream…
Kratos and son will be gracing our screens from April 20th. So there’s just enough time to get our body paints ready.
