God of War 5 has yet to be confirmed by developer Santa Monica, but a follow-up to the critically acclaimed God of War (2018) is almost certainly in the works, especially after a coy tease from the game director Cory Barlog.
On Tuesday, game director Cory Barlog once again teased the upcoming announcement of God of War’s 5 following months of the job from Santa Monica Studios strongly hinting that Kratos and Atreus will return on the PlayStation 5. The Santa Monica executive responded to a tweet by gaming publication IGN asking gamers which highly anticipated PlayStation but unconfirmed sequels they’re most excited for. The post mentioned Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Uncharted 5.
WILL CRATOS DIE IN 5?
Now coming to Norse Mythology and what has been shown in the latest GOD of WAR game. In the end, we see a mural in which Kratos is shown bleeding (and possibly dying). First, it could just be bleeding and not death so Kratos is not dying. … SO KRATOS IS NOT DYING AND HE WILL KILL ALL THE NORSE GODS EVENTUALLY!
WHEN WILL GOD OF WAR 5 AVAILABLE?
Games as visually stunning and story-driven as God of War take at least a few years to complete despite that, but at least Santa Monica can carry some of the grunt work it did from the 2018 release over to the eventual sequel. With that in mind, it’s possible that we could see a God of War 5 announcement trailer sometime in the next year or two. Some kind of announcement before the end of 2020 feels very likely.
It doesn’t seem like the game will be a PS5 launch title when it hits shelves in during the 2020 holidays, or else gamers would have heard something by now. But rest assured, Dad and Boy will be returned.
