Barlog took charge of answering the question, and revealed that much of the decision comes down to the fact modern God of War games take a good four-five years to make. If there was a third game in the Norse saga, it would mean that the whole thing would take about 15 years overall.
In addition, the team decided not to stretch the story out too far, although God of War (2018) wasn’t exactly a small game, so presumably Ragnarok will be packed with content that will help tie up all the loose ends.
God of War Ragnarok is currently in development for PS4 and PS5 and will launch in 2022. The game sees the return of Kratos and Atreus, who will be battling Thor, God of Thunder and Freya. Players can expect more input from Atreus this time around in regards to combat, while the addition of Fimbulwinter will see all 9 realms changed in different ways.
Speaking of Thor, his appearance has been praised by British powerlifting champion Darren McCormac as the ‘peak of male performance.’
