Many eyes are on the 2018 God of War sequel, both for its exciting Ragnarok setting and how secretive Santa Monica has been in the project. However, according to the original God of War director David Jaffe, a cross-generation release seems plausible.
Purely speculation, the director of the first two God of War games said that “I’m sure the new God of War will be PS4 [y] PS5 “, adding that” Jim Ryan practically said it. ” Referring to several interviews in which the PlayStation CEO declined to comment on the cross-generation status of the God of War sequel, despite stating that the PS4 will remain compatible, Jaffe’s conjecture makes perfect sense.
While Jaffe could certainly be right about his prediction for God of War Ragnarok, it’s worth noting that it’s just a prediction. For whatever reason, players and various media outlets began to regard Jaffe’s comments as official confirmation of the sequel’s cross-generation status, despite Jaffe not having any information about the project. Shortly after the news broke, Jaffe took to Twitter to reiterate that he has no inside information and that he was simply “voicing his opinion” regarding the likelihood of a cross generation. Adding that “it is not [su] place to reveal any GOW information, ”Jaffe was quick to put out the rumors.
Still, Jaffe redoubled his stance in the tweet, saying that “of course” God of War will be multigenerational. Despite having “zero knowledge” about the game and Sony’s plans (or lack thereof) for a PS4 release, the creator of the God of War franchise remains confident that the game will be on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Aside from Ryan’s comments that Exclusive games will be cross-gen for years to come, and the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West to be released on both consoles serves as further proof that a PS4 version of God of War is likely. Ragnarok.
While Jaffe could certainly be right, nothing is official until Sony makes a statement on the game’s platforms. Being a fan like everyone else, Jaffe’s comments during his God of War broadcast should only be viewed as an opinion from someone familiar with the industry and how it works. With big moments in their God of War 2018 gameplay, like Jaffe’s reaction to the return of Blades of Chaos at the midpoint of the game, the game developer’s take on the intergenerational situation isn’t the only thing the game is worth. shame about the fun. stream.
With players also in the dark regarding the official God of War Ragnarok release date, hopefully Santa Monica will get going in regards to some official news soon. For now, players can only guess when the game will arrive and what platforms it will be on when it does.
The sequel to God of War is in development.
