At Sony’s PlayStation 5 Showcase, the company showed our first glimpse at a sequel to 2018’s God of War. We got almost nothing in the way of details and didn’t see the game in action at all, but we got one key tidbit: “Ragnarok is coming.” We also know the game is coming sometime in 2021. An official title wasn’t confirmed either, though fans have taken to calling it God of War 2: Ragnarok for the time being. A PlayStation Blog post merely refers to it as “New God of War title.”
God of War director Cory Barlog hinted at a possible announcement earlier in the day by changing his Twitter avatar, but it wasn’t clear at the time if he was dropping clues or just teasing fans. The previous God of War game left the door open to a sequel, with an original story that took series protagonist Kratos out of the Greek pantheon and into Norse mythology.
In the video, we see an icy God of War omega logo adorned with Norse runes, while Kratos intones over the image, “The time draws near. You must prepare yourself.”
