Sony has debunked recent rumors that it’s developing a God of War movie or TV adaptation. The company has announced extensive plans to bring some of its popular PlayStation video game franchises to the big and small screen, including Uncharted, The Last of Us, and Ghost of Tsushima. Those plans have sparked speculation from fans as to what other properties might be getting the film treatment, and God of War has been a popular pick.

God of War tells the story of Kratos, a Spartan warrior/demigod from Ancient Greece who went on a murderous vengeance quest against the gods of Olympus across the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3. More recently, Kratos ventured to the realm of Norse mythology in a soft reboot of the God of War series for the PlayStation 4, which released to widespread critical acclaim. God of War has been one of Sony’s most prominent and bestselling first-party game series for more than 15 years, so it makes sense why some fans have been hoping for a film adaptation.

According to a new report from The New York Times, however, there is currently no such God of War movie or TV show in development. The report references several projects Sony has confirmed, including the HBO Last of Us series, the upcoming Tom Holland-led Uncharted movie, and a TV series based on the Twisted Metal car combat games. Unfortunately for Kratos stans, though, the God of War adaptation has been officially debunked by a Sony spokesperson cited by the Times.

Does that mean a God of War movie won’t ever happen? Of course not. Sony’s game-to-movie pipeline is a relatively new initiative, and the company can only choose so many properties to start off. If Uncharted, the Ghost of Tsushima movie, and others perform well, God of War could certainly be up for consideration in the coming years. For now, though, Kratos’ live-action debut will have to wait.

Overall, it’s refreshing for game fans to finally see some quality adaptations starting to roll out. Video game movies have historically been (rightfully) panned by both critics and audiences, but that trend has started to change in recent years with movies like Sonic the Hedgehog and Detective Pikachu and shows like Netflix’s Castlevania anime. Sony has plenty of great franchises that could be fun on the big screen, so it should be exciting to see how the coming projects turn out. God of War, however, will have to wait for its moment in the Hollywood spotlight.
