A Sony spokesperson has revealed that the company is not working on a movie or TV adaptation of its SIE Santa Monica Studio-developed God of War series, reports the New York Times.
While Sony has a lot of projects in the pipeline based on popular franchises, including Uncharted, Ghost of Tsushima, and Twisted Metal, God of War is not in the running to be adapted to the silver screen, despite rumors to the contrary.

The news comes from the same article that posted a new screenshot of the Uncharted movie, showcasing Mark Wahlberg (Sully) and Tom Holland (Drake) in action.
To be fair, you might be surprised that Sony isn’t planning a TV or movie adaptation of God of War, as it’s a prime candidate for either being such a massive franchise. Still, it’s not as if we won’t be spoilt for choice in the future give how many other IPs are getting this treatment.
Sony is currently working on God of War Ragnarok for the PS5, which has yet to attract a release date.
