The team over at Santa Monica Studios have confirmed that God of War has gone gold.
The news comes from Cory Barlog, Creative Director of Santa Monica Studios, who tweeted out the milestone this morning, following a blog post. Going “Gold” means that development of the game has finished and been sent off to manufacturer’s for production. This is the process that creates those shiny new discs for its launch on April 20th.
“Going gold means so much more to me with this game. It has been a long and exhausting journey filled with laughs, arguments, and a healthy dose of fear – with a side of doubt. This was the scariest, most wonderful thing I have ever done and I can honestly say it would never have been possible without the full-throated support of Sony and the tireless work of the incredible team at Santa Monica Studio.” Barlog said in the blog post. “We have been through a lot together and I would not change a thing. You are the best damn team a director could ever hope for and I am thankful beyond words for every ounce of passion and pride you put into this game.”
The game is available for pre-order through Amazon.ca, who still has copies of the game’s collector’s edition in stock. This might be worth the investment if you are into collecting game statues of your favorite series.
God of War releases exclusively for the Playstation 4 on April 20th, 2018.
