God of War 3 Remastered was officially announced by Sony last week during an event celebrating the 10th anniversary of the series.
This announcement came as a surprise as earlier rumors had suggested a God of War: Ascension Remaster for the PS4, but that rumor has yet to be confirmed.
Industry Insider Shinobi602, clarified that God of War: Ascension is still happening for the PS4, and that he was not aware that Sony was planning to remaster God of War 3 as well.
The person I spoke to about that works at a Sony studio, however I no longer have contact with him unfortunately. In a metrics listing, “GOW: A – PS4″ was listed, so I was a bit surprised GOW3 was remastered first. I spoke to another individual earlier today after the announcement to do some fact checking and it turns out Ascension remaster is supposedly still a thing but coming separately later.
Shinobi added that the Remaster took more work than anticipated, and as a result, they couldn’t do both at the same time.
Yea no problem, and I agree as I said the same thing. Apparently remastering them was a bit more intensive than initially planned so couldn’t do them at the same time.
Now, such a remaster shouldn’t be surprising, given the track record of Sony remastering PS3 games for the PS4. We’ll have more on this topic as it develops over the next few weeks.
