God of War will develop action TV series for Amazon Prime

Video is reportedly in talks with pictures to develop a action TV series based on the games, according to a report.

The series is expected to be led by Mark Fergus and Hawk Otsby, the executive producers behind The Expanse, as well as Rafe Judkins, the executive producer of The Wheel of Time. Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions will also be involved.

God of War is a long-running PlayStation exclusive, but the series will likely try and capitalize on the popularity of the most recent incarnation of the series from Sony Santa Monica Studios. 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.

Details about the show’s premise are still sparse, but if the television adaption does come to fruition, producers will have a lot of ground to cover. God of War’s elaborate Greek-inspired history — where you play as the demigod Kratos — starts back in 2005 with the release of the first game for PlayStation 2. The series is now on its eighth installment, God of War: Ragnarok, which is expected sometime this year and has transitioned its setting into the Norse realm of Midgard.

Sony has struck several deals adapting some of its most popular games for TV and film. And if you were looking to watch all of this new content in one place, you’re going to be disappointed — each show is signed to a different streaming network, and its films will air in theaters (at least at the time of their initial release).

Sony most recently signed off on a live-action remake of Twisted Metal on Peacock.
