Amazon has confirmed the production of a series based on the God of War franchise, which can be seen through its prime video platform.
Earlier this year it was already learned that the company was considering adapting the Sony Santa Monica franchise to television with a Live Action series.
Although now they have not given too many details, The Hollywood Reporter confirms that the series has been in development since last March and, as was rumored then, the series would have the creators and executive producers of The Expanse, Mark Fergus and Hawk Mostly.
His showrunner (which will be responsible for maintaining the coherence of the work) will be Race Judging, who already had this work in the wheel of time.
At the moment they have not confirmed in what part of the temporal line of the saga the series will be set, although it seems clear that it will depart from the 2018 game by having used its cover as a promotional image.
The Hollywood Reporter, in fact, reaffirmed these clues by revealing their synopsis:
«When his beloved wife dies, Rates undertakes a dangerous trip with his distanced son to spread his ashes from the highest peak, his wife’s last desire.
Rates soon realizes that the trip is an epic search disguised, which will test the ties between father and son and will force Rates to fight against new gods and monsters for the destiny of the world… ».
This series is the second project consisting of an adaptation of the video game announced by Amazon after Fallout, although it is still far from the many Netflix productions with Cyberpunk, Castlemaine, Resident Evil, Assassin’s Creed, Horizon and a few more.
The most recent, in fact, is the animated Dragon Age series: acquittal, released on December 9.
