During the PlayStation 5 showcase, Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Santa Monica Studio officially teased the highly anticipated sequel to its hit 2018 game, God of War.
When God of War was originally released back in 2018, players were blown away by the game’s story, gameplay, and graphics. The ending of the game teased more to the story, with Kratos’ son (spoiler alert) being revealed as a version of the Norse god Loki.
Unfortunately, however, nothing else about the sequel to the game was revealed. Fans were forced to sit in silence for years, waiting for even a drip of information about the game in any way, shape, or form. Now, the waiting is finally over.
At the end of Sony’s PS5 showcase, a sequel to God of War was officially announced, teasing that “Ragnarok is coming”. The game is set to release in 2021 on PlayStation 5.
Currently, no details about the game are known. More than likely it’ll follow up all the lose storylines seen in the first game, including the aforementioned “Loki” plotpoint.
In terms of what Ragnarok means, the word is Nordic in nature and essentially describes the end of the world or the apocalypse, for lack of a better word. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, Ragnarok is the “final destruction of the world” after a battle between Aesir and Loki.

This could give us a major hint as to what the game to be about. At this point, however, it’s anyone’s best guess as to how they’ll adapt it.
If the game is truly coming next year, here’s hoping that we learn more about it in the next few months. With just a teaser, fans will surely be thirsty for more.
