Facebook Rumor of "God of War IV" Disputed Because It's On Facebook
A recent rumor started on Facebook claims that God of War IV is in the works. What is supposed to be an announcement of the fourth chapter in the popular franchise for the Playstation 3 has been quickly dismissed by Sony developers. "One warning sign that this is simply an unfounded rumor is that it is on Facebook."
Other game announcements and news have been widely posted on Facebook, 95% of them disputed and later dismissed altogether. One user explains, "it's very much like those messages you get from friends that they answered some question about you in an app. Utter bullshit."
The rumor was started by a new logo and announcement posted on Facebook, claiming that "God of War IV" was "Coming in 2012", but has now proven to be a screenshot from a fan-made trailer. "People read this on Facebook," the fan in question said, "and they actual believed it? Owned!"
