IMDb Indicates Possible 2010 Release For God Of War III

Update: Spike TV will air the 2008 Video Game Awards on December 14, which is when we'll see the debut trailer for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and, as we've just found out, God of War III.  Maybe an estimated launch date will come along with it...?

Original Story:

Up until the time an official source provides the media with a release date for a high-profile blockbuster game, everyone attempts to find hints or clues in every possible corner of the Internet. In the case of God of War III, someone at N4G must've recently checked the IMDb database on a whim.

As it turns out, we get the unfortunate evidence that GoWIII may not release until 2010. English actor T.C. Carson is handling the voice acting duties for Kratos in the game, and at his IMDb page, this gig is right at the top...with a release listing of 2010. Now, either they know something we don't - which we suppose is possible - or it's just an estimated placeholder date that doesn't mean anything. The most optimistic launch window we've seen is March 2009, which circulated immediately after Sony debuted the teaser trailer during their press conference at E3. But that seems more and more unlikely as time goes on, and this new source could be closer to accurate. Then again, Dave Jaffe got everyone all keyed up by saying he was completely blown away by seeing GoWIII in action, so it can't be too far off, right? Sony hasn't provided us with their best guess yet, so we'll just have to rely on these tidbits of info to keep the guessing game alive.

Anyway, we'll let you know as soon as we hear anything more concrete about a release date for God of War III, but I think I speak for all PS3 owners when I say, "please, oh please, make it sooner rather than later!"

God I hope the game isn't pushed into 2010 that would bring a tear, but I am actually more excited at this point to see Uncharted 2 information than GoWIII. I know, I know, I am a blasphemer but I want more Nate Drake action. Kratos I never played so maybe I am biased.

Coverton, you should play GOW & GOW2. IMO those are among the best of the best PS2 games.

I really want GOW3 on 2009, but if they need more time to get Kratos kickin' asses like a God of War, take all the time you need

I would rather wait for PS3 game than to have glitchy buggy games that cause more frustration than entertainment. I have dealt with rushed to the gate games on my 360 and it bothers me. So, while it does suck to wait I would rather do that than be pissed and trade a game in.

2010 is getting pretty far back, I really hope it releases sooner. I dont want to wait more than a year for it but I do want it to be as godly as possible.

Coverton: Neither of the GoW games were buggy or glitchy in the least. They really are must-plays.

Sorry I may have been a bit misleading in my previous posts. I don't think the previous games were buggy or glitchy I just never got around to playing them but judging from how hotly everyone is defending and recommending them I may go pick them up on Friday when I get paid. I am just stating here that if they need to push III back to 2010 then I would gladly wait than have them bring it out a year early and it be frustrating. Sorry for any confusion.

As seen in this post on the God of War III page on IMDB, it might not be true.

Because this project is categorized as being in production, the data is subject to change; some data could be removed completely.

Though Michael Clarke Duncan as Atlas!!! YES!!!

I'd be really surprised if it was pushed back to 2010. the games been in development for some time now, and Jaffe's comments a little bit back lead me to believe that it's further along than a 2010 release would indicate.

I see this happen all the time. Imdb is a resource, and it's pretty good for that, but it's never reliable for news; late or current.

Yeah I totally agree. I love the site for its information but I wouldn't believe their estimates of anything really. But if they are just putting a date out there I think it would've been better if it was Q2 '09 instead LOL.

I've been saying for a while that a March 2010 release is extremely likely.

God of War 1 had three years of development. God of War 2 had two years of development because their engine was in place. Now they have to make a new engine on a new system for God of War 3. It makes complete sense.

The last time I said this here I got, like, 3 thumbs down. Do you guys not like rational thinking or would you be so heart broken by waiting 3 years for a stellar game, rather than 2.5, that you would resort to thumbing down an intelligently thought out post in a desperate attempt to change something you cannot control?

By the way I'm just half joking in my previous paragraph. Thumb me down all you like. :)

The thumbs are to display agreement/disagreement. Disagreeing with your opinion does not mean a lack of rational thought. Kinda arrogant to think that your opinion is so important that only the irrational would disagree.
By the way I'm just half joking in my previous sentence. ;)

If the PS3 released in 2006, add 3 years (your words) and that's an 2009 release.

man people that complain for waiting are annoying,i mean some people complain because the game takes too long but in the end it will be a game that barely has flaws i cant say perfect cause nothing really is,i personally dont mind waiting because it shows that sony cares and wants things right for their costumer

Yeah true, we all want the devs to make the game perfect, but we would prefer the game to come out sooner. It's life, and this matter can be associated with just about anything other than gaming too.

IMDB is rarely accurate, I declare it a place holder with which Mr. Carson is simply agreeing, still I don't think we will see it until the holidays '09.

I've waiting for the March 09 release date amazon and gamestop both had it for march then I went on and a couple of weeks ago and they have it now listed as tba, I've been wondering the new date. I think it will be out holiday 09 at the latest. Would have been nice killzone 2 feb gowIII march. infamous in may. But they can take all the time they need because this game is going to kickass and be worth the wait.

actually, imo, if a game is determined to be a quality game, the waiting is worthy no matter how long, as long as when it is done it can blow people away and make people jaw drop on the ground, then it is ok.

Do not ruin a game "--could have been great otherwise"-- and make it just a mediore one by rushing it to get released. Such is my idea, quality is the most important in terms of big release. MGS4 for 3.5 years development is well justified by its quality once it is done.

14th? I guess I could tune in for those trailers, even if the awards themselves are purchased by M$ and the show may have no redeeming social purpose.

@ Matheson, if you are new to the site, and if you continue on with this kinda attitude and words, you will be gone and disappear from this site in less than one than. cuz Ben will soon come up and clean you up.

if you are old user for this site, you've already known the rules and atmosphere -- bashing or cursing either consoles or peers is not tolerated. So mind your words and attitude please.

@ WorldEndsWithMe -- your words is already very kind to him.

(Not that I believe IMBD) I just said while looking at the psx e-mail before I got to the link for this specific article. With Uncharted 2, GT5, WKC, KZ2 and possibly R&CF2. It just seemed logical for sony to save GOW3 for 2010. As much as I want it, March 2010 is a better move.
