“I would like to personally thank the millions of fans around the world who decided to embark on Kratos’ latest adventure with us,” Santa Monica Studio head Shannon Studstill said. “Your support is truly inspiring, and it’s a reason why we push ourselves every day to go beyond the boundaries of play. I’d also like to thank our Creative Director, Cory Barlog, and Director of Product Development, Yumi Yang and our entire amazing team at Santa Monica Studio. The belief in the game’s vision and the passion for storytelling across the team is undeniable.

Previous entries in the God of War franchise have sold over 4 million units throughout their shelf life, putting the new God of War on track to match its predecessors or to set a new series sales record.
In the new game, living as a man outside the shadow of the gods, Kratos must adapt to unfamiliar lands, unexpected threats, and a second chance at being a father. Together with his son Atreus, the pair will venture into the brutal Norse wilds and fight to fulfill a deeply personal quest. You can order your own copy of God of War by clicking here.
