Amazon Reportedly Wants to Make a God of War TV Show

Another PlayStation property looking to expand to other mediums.

Sounds like God of War is joining the stable of PlayStation live-action adaptations, as Amazon is reportedly interesting in bringing Kratos to Prime Video.

According to a new report from Deadline, Bezos and friends are looking to create a TV show based on Sony Santa Monica’s action games, but there’s no details on whether this series would take place in the series’ depiction of Greek mythology, which served as the series’ basis during the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 era, or the Norse mythology setting that begin with the 2018 reboot. This continuity will conclude in God of War: Ragnarok, which is set to launch on PlayStation 4 and 5 this year. Deadline’s story says The Expanse creators and executive producers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby will be involved, as well as The Wheel of Time executive producer/showrunner Rafe Judkins. Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions will also be part of the series’ development, but none of the above parties commented on Deadline’s original story.

While the God of War show is likely still a way’s off, PlayStation has been in the midst of developing a handful of adaptations for its properties. Including the recently-released Uncharted live-action movie starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, which was alright when viewed as an action movie divorced from the source material, though some would argue it was a mistake trying to adapt Naughty Dog’s action games into a film, to begin with. But that’s not the only Naughty Dog property with a live-action adaptation in the works, as an HBO series based on The Last of Us is set to premiere in 2023.
