Netflix isn’t planning a God of War series, but game director would like one

It seems God of War director Cory Barlog would love to watch Netflix’s adventures of Kratos and Boy.

The latest God of War game was a masterpiece by just about any metric – not just in terms of gameplay, but storytelling as well. So it’s no surprise that rumors are circulating about a Netflix series that could adapt or build on Kratos and Atreus’ adventures.

The bad news is game director Cory Barlog shut down these rumors, stating that a TV series isn’t happening. The good news is he’s open to the idea.

“True. This is not happening,” Barlog wrote via Twitter. “Hmmm … I wonder if we should do something about that @netflix?”

Netflix is working on series for Castlevania and The Witcher, along with a streamable version of Minecraft: Story Mode.

If those projects go well, perhaps Sony will partner with Netflix for brand-new God of War adventures.
