Cory Barlog Thinks God of War Could Lend Itself to a Netflix Series
Cory Barlog, the man behind God of War II and 2018's God of War reboot, thinks the God-killing saga could lend itself well for a Netflix-style TV series adaptation, after other popular game IPs like Castlevania and The Witcher did so well recently.
(At least, I think so)

Barlog was quick to clarify there's nothing in the works as of yet and it is currently just his wish.
By the way, this is not a hint or anything. I just believe that games would make great TV shows because you spend so much time with the characters in fantastic worlds.
Games, like TV, are like relationships with the characters, where movies are more like a date.
Both can be great.
Certainly, 2018's God of War rekindled everyone's interest in the IP. The game turned out to be one of the best-selling PlayStation 4 games (having surpassed 10 million units sold in May 2019) and one of the most critically acclaimed titles released this generation. It won both Wccftech's staff and community award for Game of the Year in 2018, and Kai rated it 10 in his review.
God of War is one of those rare titles that define the console generation. Kratos’ fighting has been refined to its very best and the lands of Midgard are filled with wonders of all manner to explore and defeat. It’s been nearly the entire lifespan of the PlayStation 4 console since Kratos has seen new adventure but the wait has been absolutely worth it. Santa Monica Studio’s journey is still far from over, but they’ve once again shown why Kratos is one of gaming’s greatest anti-heroes.
There are other announced and rumored game IPs adaptations coming to the small screen, by the way. New animated shows dedicated to Assassin's Creed, Devil May Cry, Dragon's Dogma and Cuphead are on the way, while Resident Evil has been only rumored so far.
