Rumor: God of War 4 due out September 2012

Though Sony has yet to announce the game formally, it appears the next entry in the God of War series may debut during the fall of 2012.

According to the latest issue of PSM3 magazine, God of War 4 is currently in development and has a premiere date set for September 2012.

“PSM3 has heard from another source that God of War 4 is coming, and will hit in September 2012,” the mag is reporting. “Our source works closely with the God of War universe, and let slip he’d be working on a related project at the same time.”

To date, neither Sony nor franchise developer Sony Santa Monica has uttered a word about God of War 4. However, last month a job listing at the studio pointed to the possibility of the series getting a multiplayer component.
