God of War 5 will not be announced at E3 2019 this year but we can be pretty certain that it will be present at E3 2020 or Playstation experience 2020 as a PlayStation 5 game.
God of War 5 release date
The fifth entry in the God of War franchise has not been announced yet, so neither Santa Monica or Sony Interactive Entertainment has revealed specific details. However, a teaser announcing a new game in the next year or two isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
The game will probably be released at the end of 2020 or at the start of 2021. Either way, we’re expecting God of War 2 will be coming to Sony’s PlayStation 5.
God of War 5 story
Well, it is important to remember that the God of War franchise likes to spin its source material into something new, meaning that there is a limit to its predictive power. Moreover, it should be mentioned that the new God of War has already seen the prophecies of Norse mythology broken, thus making it even clearer that interested individuals shouldn’t expect future instalments to proceed exactly as what Norse mythology says. Due to this, what we learned in the new God of War provides us with a good idea of the general direction of where the franchise is headed, but we should expect plenty of swerves along the way.
God of War PS4 theme
Back in April 2019, a new dynamic theme appeared on PS4 to celebrate the anniversary of the God of War reboot. The theme showed Kratos and Atreus rowing, however, the theme contained a secret message (discovered by eagle-eyed God of War fans on Reddit).
The boat the pair are rowing in has runes etched on its side which translate (in English) to “Ragnarok is coming”. Could this be hinting that the God of War sequel will be a focus on Ragnarok (essentially the Nordic mythology version of the apocalypse)?
