Can we see a Netflix live action series for one of the iconicest exclusive names in Sony? If Manager of God of War Cory Barlog (he isn’t), was in charge, we’d! Barlog has taken Twitter to weigh up a gaming podcast issue. In the tweet below you can see his response. The first question was: “How else can Netflix-style IP games borrow from? In all the main letters, Barlog responded, GOD. In the past, the possibility of a War-God film has existed, but nothing has ever materialised. At least, I think so. Obviously, this design was a one-dimensional hack and slash computer from the days of Kratos.
Of course, after Netflix waved with the Witcher during this holiday season such debates have continued throughout the fandom. Geralt of Rivia’s adventures beautifully adapted into a small screen and became one of Netflix’s most watched series. The rest of Hollywood hits the iron again if something like this happens. Barlog immediately sent a follow-up message, reminding everyone that it is just his personal opinion and should not start churning the rumor mill over such a project.
The director of God of War, Cory Barlog would like to see Netflix TV series dedicated to famous game, but for now it is nothing more than a dream. Barlog has expressed confidence in a God of War Netflix TV series in the wake of The Witcher’s success. He was also quick to clarify that his tweet was not an indication of an upcoming announcement, writing by the way, this is not a suggestion or anything. I just think the games would make great TV shows because you spend so much time with the characters in fantastic worlds “.
However, Twitter users quickly responded and started talking about how to handle God of War’s hypothetical adaptation on Netflix. A user asked Barlog not to make a God of War movie in light of the situation of the uncharted movie.
God of War was released on PS4 in 2018 and is still a much loved game for its exceptional graphics and compelling combat, but mainly for its empathic characters and well-told story. There is no doubt that a multi-part series could explore the game’s parent-child relationship in new and meaningful ways.
