Those God of War 2 rumors in regard to the PS5 just keep turning up, and apparently there will be a “whole mountain of exclusives” coming for Sony’s next-gen console. A new PlayStation 5 pre-order date prediction could be an immense misfire if accurate as it would seemingly give Microsoft the edge for attracting brand-indifferent consumers.

A new YouTube podcast video from Moore’s Law Is Dead has been offering up some alleged details about the state of PS5 exclusives and games in general, and what fans can possibly expect from Sony. Yet again, a sequel to God of War was discussed, and there was no ambiguity in the statement made about the potential title. In fact, the channel’s host, Tom, made this striking comment about the situation: “they have God of War 2 that they’ve shown behind closed doors”. It seems he was referring to a possible demo, but whatever stage the game is in, the noted tech blogger seems confident that SIE Santa Monica is preparing it as a big surprise for PlayStation fans.

There do seem to be quite a few signs pointing in this general God of War 2/PS5 direction too: We already reported about Cory Barlog’s intriguing Twitter header image and now a principal gameplay programmer at SIE Santa Monica, Geoff Harrower, has basically teased that big things are on their way and that he is deeply excited about them. In addition to that, it appears that a “whole mountain of exclusives” is coming according to Moore’s Law Is Dead. Apparently, Sony still has a surprise launch title to reveal to PS5 fans and there will be so many exclusives that gamers can pretty much tick off probably any game they have in mind as a potential PlayStation 5 exclusive and it will be among the selection offered.

It’s quite a claim to make, but the host reasons that a lot of games that were originally in development for the PS4 eventually started being redeveloped for the PS5, as the former console’s popularity and sales success had already been established. If the latest PlayStation 5 pre-order date prediction of October 1 is accurate, then Sony could do with having a mountain of exclusives and God of War 2 to offer future PS5 owners. Because with Microsoft announcing that pre-orders for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will commence on September 22, that would give the Redmond-based company more than a whole week of being able to convince undecided and brand-indifferent consumers into making an order for its next-gen console.
