Rumors surfaced a few days ago claiming Sony would release the much-anticipated God of War sequel for the PlayStation 5 in 2021. Those rumors have turned out to be completely false, though, after being soundly debunked by the man behind God of War himself, Cory Barlog.

A few days ago, word on the grapevine claimed Sony was working hard on the development of a God of War sequel, with a 2021 launch potentially on the cards in a bid to give prospective PlayStation 5 owners something to look forward to. Well, there's some bad news on that.

Game Director of God of War, Cory Barlog, has soundly debunked those rumors. In a tweet, the Santa Monica Studio lead man has put paid to all of that by sharing a gif of a Transformer laughing before saying "no"—in response to the rumors. 

So, no, the God of War sequel isn't coming in 2021. It would have made no sense anyway, seeing as there's been no marketing material so far, and we're already past the midway point of 2020. Of course, the God of War sequel is in the works, but there's little to no chance of it releasing in 2021. Fans of the series will have to wait a while longer to see their favorite dad of war swing his Blades of Chaos once again.
