It looks like the Norse based continuation of Kratos’ story was accidentally leaked earlier than expected, and it was done by the US PlayStation Store. Twitter user Wario64 first spotted the release date of March 22,2018.

Digging into the release date, even more, Wario64 found this Amazon listing for “The Art of God of War,” with a scheduled release date of March 15, 2018.
I’d take this all with a grain of salt, as Sony has now removed the March release date and replaced it with a placeholder date of December 31, 2018.
This is pretty big news if true, but it’s also a big mistake. I don’t think this should be an issue for Sony, I mean the hype for God of War is there, people are invested in the series, but the only issue I notice is the leak comes days before the Video Game Awards and the PlayStation Experience, both set for the next week.
