God of War Series Heading to Amazon Prime Video

The popular PlayStation video game "God of War" will be getting a series adaptation from Prime Video. The series will be co-produced by Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios in association with PlayStation Productions.

Vernon Sanders, head of global television at Amazon Studios, said, "The God of War is a compelling, character-driven franchise that we believe will captivate our global customers as much with its expansive and immersive worlds as its rich storytelling. We are honored to share in the adventure of exploring the God of War mythology in such a momentous way with Sony Pictures Television, PlayStation Productions, and Santa Monica Studio."

"We are so proud and excited to be working with our friends at Amazon Studios and our partners at PlayStation Productions to adapt this beautiful and heartbreaking game into a premium live-action series. Rafe, Mark, and Hawk are crafting a transportive series that charts a path through the ancient mythological journey of Kratos", said Katherine Pope, president of Sony Pictures Television Studios.

The franchise is comprised of seven games and was launched in 2005. It follows the story of ex-Spartan warrior Kratos and his path of revenge against  Ares, the Greek God of War.

"God of War is one of PlayStation's most awarded video games, so we're excited to partner with Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios to bring our beloved franchise to fans and new audiences in a bold and authentic way," said Asad Qizilbash, head of PlayStation Productions.
