i believe this was set after GoW 1 and before GoW 2

the weapon he is using is Athena's blade

CoO & GoW 1 = blades of chaos

GoS & GoW 2 = Athena's blade

GoW 3 = blades of exile

I won't spoil anything, but there's a scene after the credits in GOW3.

This is set right after he killed his wife/daughter, became the Ghost of Sparta and went from serving Ares to serving Athena. The chronological order for the games is (including this one but not counting a couple downloadable mini-games for PC/phone): GoW:A, GoW: CoO, GoW1, GoW: GoS, GoW2 and GoW3.

No. God of War Ascenion takes place after Kratos killed his family and is about his quest to renounce his allegiance to Ares.

No. This game takes place after Kratos killed his family. Also the end of God of War 3 implies he survived his suicide attempt. Plus David Jaffe says in God of War 4 he's going to fight either the Egyptian or Norse gods.
