The previous game in the franchise released in 2019 and now God Of War 5 is on its way. Since its launch on PS4 last year, God Of War has sold over 10 million units, thus reaching a new milestone.
So let’s dig in regarding all the details of the upcoming game.
As per the latest reports, the game has been in development for over a year and a half. It is still currently in the works. There is a chance that the new God Of War may be announced at the Playstation 5 reveal event later this year. Therefore, we can expect a teaser later this week. The previous God Of War went into production 2014 before releasing in 2019. However, Cory Barlog tweeted that the next instalment won’t take five years to develop. This means we can expect the next chapter to release in late 2021. Seeing that the game will be a PS5 exclusive, it will release after the console is launched.
What To Expect From The New Game?
Creative Director Cory Barlog teased that the new game could focus more on Kratos and Faye’s meeting. She said that Faye is playing an important role and is the reason behind God Of War 5. The highly anticipated game will be a sequel to 2019 game God Of War 4
Over the years, the God Of War franchise has seen significant developments in terms of graphics, visual effects, and storyline. Kratos, who started the tour as a relentless God, turned into a responsible father in the previous edition. Kratos and Atreus triggered the apocalypse during the last game. This means that the end is near but won’t happen until the next game in the series. The last game in the franchise hinted towards Thor being the antagonist. This makes Thor a crucial aspect of the plot for God Of War 5; similarly, it is speculated that the new game will focus more on Atreus as the story progresses
The upcoming game is rumored to be titled as God Of War Ragnarok. As the name suggests, this could mean a completely new beginning for the God Of War franchise. Therefore, we can see the end of Norse Mythology in the next game. But it will open doors for the franchise to explore newer worlds. The game can jump into Egyptian mythology in the following editions.
