You won’t hear Kratos screaming “boy” anytime soon.
Santa Monica Studio, in charge of the development of God of war 2 (temporary title) on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, announced a significant deadline for this production.
Here is the justification offered in a letter to fans (see below): “Since the release of the teaser from the upcoming God of War last year, we were flattered by the love the community showed us. We are very grateful to see so many people excited to experience the next chapter in the adventures of Kratos and Atreus.
We are focused on delivering top quality gaming while safeguarding the well-being and health of our team, creative partners, and families. Taking these details into account, we have chosen to push back the release window to 2022.
Thank you for your continued support. We have some exciting things in development that we can’t wait to share with you! “.
The bad news is accompanied by a “shocking” revelation today that this game is also being developed for PlayStation 4. Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios, confirmed the matter in a question and answer session. on the official Sony blog: “When it makes sense to develop a title on both PS4 and PS5, for example with Horizon: Forbidden West, the next God of War or GT7, we will continue to do so. If PS4 owners want to play this game, they will get the chance. If they want to play the PS5 version instead, the game will also be available to them ”.
