The fourth entry in the God of War series simply titled ‘God of War’ was phenomenal and it has taken Sony Santa Monica to new heights and now it turns out that the studio is working hard on a sequel.
Though there is no hurry behind the sequel it is highly rumored that it will be announced following the release of Sony’s next-gen console the PlayStation 5.
The God of War sequel might feature Ragnarok, which is supposed to bring destruction and cause the world to end. Looking at how well God of War was created it is certain that God of War Ragnarok will continue along similar lines.
God of War had sons of Thor and Thor in a brief cameo squaring off against Kratos so it will be fun to see which Norse mythology characters will God of War Ragnarok will bring to the audiences.
PlayStation 5 will allow the developers to create a better-developed experience for the characters to blossom in and the progression should be exciting.
Game Director Cory Barlog once said that the development of God of War took around 5 years, though the sequel shouldn’t take as long because prior to making God of War there were debates about even making the game and creating an entirely new universe for the characters to be in.
Since all that is already established, the developers have to now port the entire game system to the new console.
There have been openings in the Sony Santa Monica Studio which did point towards a sequel and game director Cory Barlog has stated that he wishes to create a sequel to it is certain that God of War Ragnarok is in the works.
There have been countless hints where the developers have hinted towards Ragnarok and it will be an exciting event in the hands of the studio.
Environmental Artist Nate Stephens recently said, “We still want to be God of War. What I want to say is, the first battle in this game when you’re fighting The Stranger is really an epic fight. It ends with you two destroying the entire environment around you. It was really hard to create, I myself was working on the lighting for this level, and it was super hard to get it to work”.
It certainly doesn’t feel as though God of War could be more than a couple years away from being released but it is certain that it will be developed for the next-generation Sony console.
