God of War: Ascension is a prequel to the original trilogy that will tell Kratos' origin story. It is a PlayStation 3 exclusive and includes a multiplayer mode, a first for the series.

The God of War franchise's last outing was God of War: Ghost of Sparta for the PSP in 2010, which featured events that took place between the original God of War and God of War II. The God of War Origins Collection, featuring God of War: Chains of Olympus and God of War: Ghost of Sparta, was released in September 2011 for the PS3 in HD.

The last entry in the main series was God of War III, released in 2010 on the PS3, whose story seemingly concluded the main franchise.
