God of War is now Gold as announced by Cory Barlog, the creative director at Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Santa Monica Studio.
There are two big milestones for a game, the “greenlit” and the “going gold.” The first one kicks off the real development of one title, and the second one is the final and last achievement.
Cory Barlog has shared his thoughts on this achievement, so let’s take a look at what he said:
“Going gold means so much more to me with this game. It has been a long and exhausting journey filled with laughs, arguments, and a healthy dose of fear – with a side of doubt. This was the scariest, most wonderful thing I have ever done and I can honestly say it would never have been possible without the full-throated support of Sony and the tireless work of the incredible team at Santa Monica Studio. We have been through a lot together and I would not change a thing. You are the best damn team a director could ever hope for and I am thankful beyond words for every ounce of passion and pride you put into this game.”
In addition, he thanked his father James Barlog saying:
“Because this story is about fathers and sons, I wanted to thank my father, James Barlog, a source of inspiration and a great writer, who instilled within me the drive to create and the fortitude to survive the difficulties that come with that vocation.”
God of War is an exclusive PS4 game, releasing on April 20, 2018.
