PSM3’s reporting that the unannounced God of War IV will feature an online co-op mode.

Spoilers for God of War III below.

The UK mag, which reported in April last year that the sequel would launch in 2012, said it will have an online co-op mode featuring Kratos and his dead brother Deimos.

The full rumour, read in its latest issue (via Sillegamer), says: “Why is it hot? It’s bringing double Kratos to the series. GOW4 was confirmed to PSM3 mid-2011 by a reliable source, and rumours point to a multiplayer twist. Mad idea? Online co-op with a (possibly) dead Kratos and (very) dead brother Deimos teaming up to escape the afterlife.”

In March 2011, developer Sony Santa Monica posted a job listing looking for a “senior online programmer” to join the GoW team.

The franchise’s last big release was God of War III in March 2010 for PS3, with spin-off Ghost of Sparta coming out in the tail end of that same year for PSP from Ready at Dawn.
