As it turns out, God of War: Ascension shipped over 3 million units worldwide, grossing over $100m in revenue as a result.
The information comes from the LinkedIn profile of a former director of product development at Sony Santa Monica Studio. In the section for describing duties involved in a former role, ex-Sony Chacko Sonny writes that he “led the studio comprised of two teams at a peak headcount of over 150 professionals, to complete the most recent installment of the God of War series (God of War: Ascension).”
“Title reviewed at 80 Metacritic, and shipped more than 3M units (grossing over $100M), securing a strong ROI for the product and franchise,” the duty list continues.
In other things God of War, Cory Barlog said late last year that he would love a God of War (PS4) PC port.

Although there won’t be another God of War game for quite some time, a prequel comic called God of War: Fallen God is scheduled to come out this June, which will explain what exactly happened after the end of God of War 3.
