God of War III dated for March 16 in US [Update]

Thursday, 28th January 2010 17:14 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Update: Here. We. Go.

SCEE’s just told VG247 an EU date will be announced on the EU PS Blog at 6pm GMT.

Update 2: No confirmed EU date yet.

SCEE just said it is aiming to release in the PAL regions in the same week as the US.

Original Story: God of War III has been confirmed for a March 16 release in the US.

The news was confirmed on the US PS Blog.

It pretty much coincides with the date given by GameStop a while back.

The box-art for both the standard edition and Ultimate Edition [Note: not the same as the Ultimate Trilogy Edition EU is getting - JC] was also confirmed.

As an added bonus, that much asked for new trailer for the epic hack-and-slash will finally air on February 11.

Earlier in the week, SCEE told us they were aiming for a March 19 release for the UK, although nothing is confirmed yet.

On the back of this, expect something very, very soon.

    I think I will also have to secretly slip the fella of the house a Valium in his drink in order to commandeer the PS3.

    Kratos is my male equivalent of Lara Croft. *sigh* I don’t do bad things to myself looking at him though like some do to Lara. :-D

    “You may have read that the God of War III U.S. release date has been confirmed today as the 16th March 2010. Whilst I can’t confirm the exact date for PAL, I wanted to let you know say that we are aiming to release God of War III across PAL regions during the same week. I will confirm this as soon as I can so watch this space, the wait will be over soon!”

    Same week but no exact date… I’m still going with 17th Central Europe, 19th UK.

    @23 I don’t think they are worthless.I believe they are trying to conclude on to what special editions they will release in EU so when they do that they can finally give a release date
