Amazon Prime Video is said to be negotiating the adaptation of the hit title from Santa Monica Studio into a television series.
After The Last of Us (HBO) and Twisted Metal (Peacock), it would be the turn of God of War, another Playstation exclusive, to see itself adapted in television seriesthis time by Amazon Prime Video.
Amazon’s video-on-demand service is indeed negotiate rights on the title with Sony and Playstation according to Deadline, and it would be the creators and executive producers of Expanse, Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Children of Men, Iron Man), as well as the producer of The Wheel of Time and Agents of the SHIELD, Rafe Judkinswhich could stick to it.
If we add to this the development by Amazon Studios of Fallout and probably soon of Mass Effect, always for Prime Videoas well as other competing series like The Witcher on netflix or Halo on Paramount+even the recent cinema release of Uncharted as well as the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima, we can say that video games are booming at the moment in terms of live adaptation.
Recall that Amazon is also at work on The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, a new series based on the works of JRR Tolkien.
If the God of War project succeeds, it remains to be seen who could embody Kratosthe ex-Spartan, and whether history would care about his uprising facing the greek gods or, as in the last installment of the series, would take place in Scandinavia with the Norse gods.
God of War: Ragnarok, meanwhile, is expected for this year on PS4 and PS5still within the Nordic framework, where it should wrap up the story of Kratos and his son Atreus.
