Sony Interactive Entertainment and God of War creative director Cory Barlog announced the release date of the title on the PlayStation Blog alongside a new plot-centric trailer and description:

Barlog also stated that the release date for the rebooted franchise is “my favorite release day of my entire career. If I live to be 100, I do not think I will be able to top this release day.”
