God of War Ragnarok , the new chapter of the series in development on PS5 and PS4, will have a surprising and inevitable ending together , in the words of the director in charge of the project, or Eric Williams of Sony Santa Monica.
As previously announced, God of War Ragnarok will represent the ending of the Norse saga of Kratos , so it is clear that he will put a point at least at this phase of the protagonist and of the series in general, although this obviously does not mean the total conclusion of God of War. . As we have seen, it was necessary to conclude the Nordic history with the second chapter of this one also due to the amount of time that the development of each game requires, which would have lengthened the times in the case of a trilogy.
In an interview published by IGN, Eric Williams , who replaced Cory Barlog at the helm of the God of War Ragnarok project, with the previous director working on something new in the meantime, reported that the ending will be “surprising, but inevitable “, obviously without expanding the concept too much.
It may suggest that, while following the story already started with the previous chapter in an organic way, thus leading to a conclusion that is necessarily linked to the events experienced so far, it will also involve innovative elements and twists that will represent surprises.
The interview also highlights some other features of God of War Ragnarok, in particular regarding the new characters shown so far such as Thor and Angrboda , but also other elements such as the role of Odin and in general the particular vision that the developers they applied to the tradition of Norse mythology.
