God of War IV getting announced next week?

PlayStation’s official Facebook page is teasing a mighty big reveal for next Thursday.

An image at the top of the page displays the message “Will vengeance bring redemption?” complete with the date 04.19.12.

That’s all the clues we’ve been given but it might be more than enough. The PlayStation-exclusive God of War series has always carried a heavy theme of vengeance in its plots. In the conclusion to the main trilogy, God of War III, protagonist Kratos finally got the revenge he had long sought, bringing about some heavy consequences along with it.

Redemption, then, would likely be a key theme for God of War IV which is being heavily rumored right now. We could be wrong of course, but it sure does look that way, doesn’t it?
