Ascension might a prequel to the first God Of War but that doesn’t mean Sony won’t revisit the lineage after the ending of God of War III. Speaking on Twitter, game director Todd Papy has hinted that such discussion won’t be too far away, either.
“We will talk about that soon,” he said when asked why they didn’t opt to continue the story after God of War III. “You’ll just need to have some patience with us,” he said, using a wink emoticon.
He also confirmed that the earlier leak wasn’t intentional by Sony. “It was a leak,” he said, “but you have to roll with it.” It’s believed that the reveal today wasn’t meant to happen until this afternoon, but the slip up by Amazon pushed Sony into making the Blog posts go live earlier than planned.
Ascension is currently scheduled for late 2013.
