God of War: Ascension Remastered PS4 Still In Development, Will Be Released Separately Later – Report

God of War 3 Remastered was officially announced by Sony yesterday 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, who had leaked the God of War: Ascension rumor, 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.

This is still a rumor as for now so take it with a grain of salt. Such a remaster shouldn’t be surprising though, given the track record of Sony remastering PS3 games for the PS4.

Let us know what you think about this rumor in the comments below.

  • Rumen Mironski

    Here is why playstation now service is a waste of money. I never had played god of war ascension when I had my ps3 because of money. I got my ps4. I didn’t have my ps3 anymore. I saw ascension on ps now which and said I rather have a game I don’t have to rent but fk it. I rented for several days. I I beat the game hours before my service expired. I had to rush to play it. Now they are doing remasters of the game wtf. I am happy for that but dam I should have just waited. Sony just get rid of the ps now service and only remaster the good games. I haven’t play god of war 3 in awhile. I would love to play it again on the ps4. Please also make god of war 4.

    also you gotta love how everyone is say that sony keep porting over… they have only ported over one game and its hardly a port. its way more and it includes dlc. but they try and bring up tearaway but is not a port at all… they have pretty much made the game for scratch because the game doesnt translate from vita to console.

  • Corey

    i love gow… its easily my favorite franchise. but i really dont understand just porting 3 to ps4… why not the saga? i dont think i will get this because i have 3 already and a photo mode doesnt interest me.

  • PachterStation

    Is that the best Sony can do? They’re totally obsessed with re-releases of God of War. God of War 5 should be on the horizon. Bashing X for hours on end and quick time events, The Order being the latest game, you can’t exactly call them AAA games for game play. God of War 3 still looks ace on the PS3, no need for a PS4 version. Ascension was nowhere near as good as God of War 3, more so the graphics. Still, there won’t be very many AAA games this gen.

      Sony have so far released one AAA remaster, The Last Us.

      Next week Bloodborne is out, the week later, MLB 14, then we have Until Dawn, The Tomorrow Children, Tearaway Unfolded etc. all before the summers out. These are just a small selection of the games on offer.

        Right this article made me laugh when it said it’s not surprising since Sony is known to remaster ps3 games for ps4 when in reality they’ve remastered one Sony owned games which was tlou with God of war 3 going to be the second. Meanwhile you have the x1 with 4 remastered games about to be 6 with halo 3 odst and state of decay with rumors of Alan wake and gear of war. So you ask me one system Def is known to remaster more than the other and it’s not the one this article tried to make sound like.

    • Corey

      no need for a ps4 version… yeah there is if they are going gow 4. ps4 has been purchased by a lot of new people coming to the ps from xbox

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    be nice if EVERY god of war game came to PS4

  • datdude

    If God of War 4 is announced at E3…then this remaster makes sense as it releases in July and people would be excited about the new games possibilities and might want to return to the God of War universe. But if no new God of War is announced, I feel this remaster may land like a dud…it will sell to those who bought a ps4 who are new to playstation, but many who have played previous God of War games in the franchise might be hesitant to buy this without the enticement of a new game coming.

    • Sunny

      There was a teaser at the end of the GoW 3 remaster video hinting GoW 4

      • datdude

        I disagree…I need to see the game in action, or get a confirmation trailer at least, at E3. Until then, it’s all speculative, and that’s not good enough.

  • jacksjus

    As much as I love GOW I really didn’t care for this one.

    • xbox1rules23

      i saw a comment on n4g that they thought god of war ascension was better than 3. 🙁

      • jacksjus

        To each their own opinion, but that is insane.
