God of War is one of the most beloved games for the PlayStation console. Studios have been fighting for years to bring the bloody tales of Kratos to the big screen but have been unsuccessful.
Now that Halo is set to premiere on Paramount+ and The Last of Us to debut on HBO Max in the near future, Amazon is looking to swipe up their own iconic video game franchise for a streaming series.
According to Deadline, Prime Video is in talks with PlayStation to adapt God of War as a live-action TV series. The Expanse creators and executive producers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby as well as The Wheel of Time producer Rafe Judkins are all looking to join the adaptation.
If finalized, God of War will join The Last of Us and Twisted Metal as the latest PlayStation exclusives to make the jump to live-action TV. Not counting some of the other flagship games adapted for the big screen like Uncharted and the upcoming Ghost of Tsushima movie.
However, The Last of Us is headed to HBO while Twisted Metal is set for Peacock.
But God of War won’t be Amazon’s only video game adaptation. Amazon Studios is currently developing a Fallout TV series from the creators of Westworld starring Walton Goggins, and a Mass Effect TV series is also set for Prime Video.
For those unfamiliar with God of War, the series stars Kratos an ex-Spartan who wages war against the Greek gods. Following the conclusion of the original trilogy, Kratos started a new life in Scandanavia where he encounters a new set of Norse gods and the troubles that come with them.
