As previously announced, God of War is coming at some point in 2022. Unlike the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West from Guerrilla Games, which allows players to upgrade from the PS4 version to the PS5 version for free, God of War and other future cross-generation PlayStation Studios games will allow upgrade for a $10 fee.

The 2018 God of War was a soft reboot of the PS3 franchise, changing up the gameplay and introducing a new setting and numerous new characters. The changes were met with enthusiasm, with God of War selling over 10 million copies and being critically lauded.
