Social networks are becoming a hive of clues, little clues that generally go unnoticed. Phil Spencer, head of the Xbox division, had an Xbox Series S on one of his shelves, but no one noticed. Now it has been discovered that Cory Barlog, creative director of God of War, he also did something similar, because he anticipated the sequel of the title starring the relentless Kratos long before its announcement.
As it usually happens these days, he did it through social networks and without anyone noticing the clues he had hinted at. It is not strange, considering that he published a board with ideas back in 2019, when no one had an idea about the new installment they were preparing. However, during the presentation event For PlayStation 5, the teaser trailer that closed the conference left the following sentence: “Ragnarok is coming” (“Ragnarok is on the way”), the same sentence that can be seen on the aforementioned board.
So it was posted by Barlog as a reminder of the brainstorming that had emerged over the six-year development of God of War, an entirely new installment that continues Kratos’ story. This time, however, it is set in the nordic world rather than in classical Greece.
Reminiscing about how crazy the last 6 yrs has been so I thought I would create a GOW BTS THREAD of photos + thoughts. Buckle up, gonna’ be long.😁
It all started out as scribbles and notes on a board and a stack of note cards. Big board image is an early breakdown of the story. pic.twitter.com/a1iZB0SllK

The story of Kratos and Atreus continues
In God of War for PS4 we follow the path of Kratos and his son Atreus. The woman of the god and the mother of the child perish, so the characters will begin a journey to scatter their ashes from the highest area.
God of War Ragnarok (title not yet confirmed) will be released in 2021, as announced at the aforementioned event. In principle, it is only confirmed for PS5, although video games such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Horizon Forbidden West will also be marketed on Sony’s current generation console.
