Rumor: OPM Gives God Of War III A Fall 2009 Launch Date
'sigh' We're relatively certain that this is nothing more than a mistake (or a bad guess) on OPM's part, but we still have to report on it. The Internet is already going crazy over the scant possibility that such a listing could be true, and it's our job to tell you about it.
Apparently, the European edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine features a full layout of God of War III, and although it may not feature more details than we already know, it does list an estimated release date...and lo and behold, it says Fall 2009. So once again, we're off on a whirlwind rumor tour that will touch every major source, and when it hits home over at SCEA, Sony will more than likely respond with the classic, "no comment." Then, some other official is going to pop up and say we won't see GoWIII any time this year, and it won't hit store shelves until March. We can almost guarantee this is going to happen, but there's still a very small part of us that wants to hope. It's a naive part, but we try to rationalize: we try to look at the situation and say, "well, look at all this gameplay footage we've seen, and check out all the details we already have. How could this game still be a year away?" We've said that more than a few times, but reality always comes along to smack us out of our fantastical reverie.
And it's gonna happen again. But in the meantime, we'll just try to keep a positive outlook and imagine how sweet "God of War III" would look sitting at the top of our holiday wish list.
