Last month, Santa Monica Studios announced that a new documentary called Raising Kratos will be coming soon which will feature the three-year development of the game; God of War. A date for the documentary is now revealed to be on May 10, when it debuts on the PlayStation’s YouTube channel.
This means that we do not have to wait that long for the documentary as it starts this week in three days. The team behind the documentary has also announced that the film will release on 12:01 am PT on Friday, May 10, which is at the end of this week.

The documentary is an exploration into the massive undertaking it took to change the course of the God of War franchise. It also gives us a chance to see the stories of people who created this work of art.
All creative endeavors, especially those of this magnitude, require an incredible amount of dedication and focus that constantly toe the fine line that separates both success and failure. The hope is that once people see the experience of Santa Monica Studio unfold on the screen, they will recognize the undying passion for their work and the incredible respect they have for their craft.
We will get to see the cinematic journey of the three-year production, and 400 hours of footage, that show the journey of second chances rooting in family, sacrifice, struggle and doubt.
God of War released in 2018 and was so popular that it sold 3.1 million copies in just three days after launch. It went on to win 5 BAFTA awards and won Game of the Year at the GDC Game Awards.
