There is already a lot of hype for Amazon Prime's live-action adaptation of God of War but fans are also concerned about one thing: Will the new show stay true to the beloved video games? Amazon Studios head Vernon Sanders assures gamers that the series is not going to stray from the games.

Amazon Studios' Head of Television Vernon Sanders recently spoke to Collider where he pointed out that he is confident in the streamer's ability in producing successful adaptations of books and comics.

"We do incredibly well with adaptations, from Invincible to The Boys. I mean, we just covered so many of them, right?" Sanders said. "And so we know that there's such a passionate fan base for God of War. But the thing that we're always looking for is whether there is a real emotional core, if there's a real narrative story, and I think [that’s] part of what makes God of War so special."

He then shared how showrunner Rafe Judkins and writers Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby pitched an excellent first season.

"At the center of it all is this story of fathers and sons, and families, set against this giant epic landscape," Sanders said. "So what Rafe and Mark and Hawk have come up with for the first season, and for the series, I think, is both incredibly true to the source material, and also compelling on its own. If you never played the game, you will fall in love with the show and feel very much invited in. So we think it's going to be huge."

It's a great idea and we certainly believe Sanders has a reason for being confident about the God of War adaptation. With that in mind, we can't wait to learn more about the new series soon.

For now, the God of War series has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
