No further information is available, and a Sony representative declined to comment.

Sony is no stranger to God of War compilations. The company has previously released the God of War Collection, which bundled PlayStation 2 games God of War and God of War II for the PS3, and the God of War Origins Collection, which included franchise PSP games Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta, released for the first time on PS3.

God of War: Ascension is the next core entry in the series. It is due out on March 5, 2013, and is a prequel to the original trilogy that will tell Kratos' origins story. The game's multiplayer mode will include persistent features as players develop their Trojan or Spartan soldiers over time.

Performance on the battlefield can yield blessings from the gods in the form of new perks, weapons, and abilities. There will also be a number of different combat roles for players, depending on the god with which they associate themselves, such as Hades, Poseidon, Zeus, or Ares.
