We know that God of War is supposedly due out in the first half of 2018, but Sony may have just accidentally leaked the highly anticipated title's release date ahead of an official announcement. Spotted by the eagle-eyed Wario64, the US PlayStation Store added a 22nd March, 2018 launch date to the game's page overnight. However, once word started to spread, the date was quickly changed to the 31st December, 2018 -- clearly a placeholder.

To make matters even more interesting, Amazon UK has decided to slap a date on the official God of War art book, apparently set to release on the 15th March.

Could God of War hit the PlayStation 4 in March? It's entirely possible, and if that PlayStation Store date turns out to be real, then someone's really buggered up. Let's not forget that The Game Awards and PlayStation Experience 2017 are mere days away -- a confirmed God of War release date would be a big reveal for either event.
