Sony's next God of War game isn't coming this year, Kratos says.

Actor Christopher Judge, who is playing the vengeful god, recently changed the game's date in his Twitter bio from 2017 to 2018.

Admittedly that isn't much to go on, but we'll likely find out for sure at E3 in a month's time.

God of War is a soft reboot that was announced at PS Experience in 2014 and unveiled at E3 last year.

It is a sequel to God of War III, but features a third-person over-the-shoulder camera rather than the cinematic camera of prior installments.

According to director Cory Balrog, it was inspired by a sympathetic depiction of Emperor Palpatine in a cancelled Star Wars TV show.
