This, although a rumor, is set to go down as a pretty bad news for all who love Kratos and his hack and slash approach to life.

Per reports, Sony's upcoming third person action-adventure title 'God of War: Ascension' could face the much-hated verdict of being delayed, although the game is poised to arrive in March this year.

The new information was revealed on the game's official page in the European PlayStation Store where it was shown the release date as April 19. This was first spotted by German site Playfront, while the U.S. page has no release date at all.

Although there is no certainty to this happening, but this was indeed true, per a Gamingbolt report, "there could be several reasons. Maybe Sony came across some issues with the multiplayer during the beta and want to work on it some more? Or maybe they want to push the game away from March due to the fact that other big games are getting released in the same month."

Playfront managed to get an update on the story by stating that the date that was shown to be April 19 is actually a bug and the release date remains to be March 13, 2013 as planned. Now it will only be revealed on the official date set for the game if the title will indeed arrive or be delayed.

'God of War: Ascension' is set to be the seventh installment in the 'God of War' series and a prequel to the entire series. It will be the first installment in the series to feature multiplayer that is being developed with Stereoscopic 3D.

"Vengeance is born in the fires of betrayal in this prequel to the best-selling God of War franchise. Six months have passed since Kratos stood over the bodies of his wife and child, his hands stained with their blood - tricked by Ares into murdering the only people he ever loved," the official page states.

"Swearing to avenge them, Kratos broke the blood oath that bound him to Ares, but oaths to Olympus are not so easily broken... Sentenced to an eternity chained within a prison for the living damned, Kratos battles insanity at the hands of the Furies. He will be tested as he seeks freedom, redemption for his sins, and the clarity to avenge his family."

The game will see Kratos attempting to sever ties with the God of War Ares (who tricked Kratos into murdering his wife and child) by defeating the three Furies. 'God of War: Ascension' will focus on vengeance as its central theme.
