God of War Live-Action Series Confirmed by Amazon Prime Video!
Gamers Rejoice: God of War Live-Action Series in the Works
Get ready, gamers – the God of War is coming to your screens! Amazon Prime Video has announced that it will be producing a live-action series adaptation of the popular Sony game. The series will be co-produced by Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions.
The show will follow Kratos in the Norse realm of Midgard after his quest for vengeance in ancient Greece. It will be an adaptation of the Santa Monica Studios sequel series, where Kratos journeys with his son to the highest peak as a final request from his late wife.
Earlier this year, Prime Video confirmed that it was in talks with PlayStation about a potential live-action series. But now, with today's direct-to-order announcement, it's clear that Prime Video is serious about bringing the God of War to life.
Rafe Judkins, showrunner for The Wheel of Time, will serve as executive producer for the series. Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby, who worked on Iron Man and Children of Men, have also boarded the series as writers and executive producers. Cory Barlog, creative director of the God of War game, will also serve as executive producer.
"The God of War is a compelling, character-driven franchise that we believe will captivate our global customers as much with its expansive and immersive worlds as its rich storytelling," said Amazon Studios' head of global television, Vernon Sanders.
Sony Pictures Television Studios president Katherine Pope added, "We are so proud and excited to be working with our friends at Amazon Studios and our partners at PlayStation Productions to adapt this beautiful and heartbreaking game into a premium live-action series."
The original God of War game was released in 2018 to critical acclaim, and its sequel, God of War: Ragnarok, was released in 2022 and was a top contender in several Game of the Year lists and categories.
But Prime Video isn't just adapting God of War – the Westworld creators are also busy working on a live-action Fallout series for the company. Recently, Prime Video released the first image of the series, which has fans buzzing.
No further details or release date for the God of War series have been announced, but gamers can rest assured that it's in good hands with Amazon Prime Video and Sony Pictures Television. Stay tuned for more updates on the epic live-action adaptation of the beloved game.
