During a panel at the PAX East gaming event, Ben Prendergast, the voice actor of Tyr in God of War: Ragnarok, hinted about the future of the series, leading to speculation about a possible sequel. Prendergast’s comment that “this game isn’t the last you’ve seen of Tyr” has caused excitement among fans of the franchise. Tyr is a mysterious character who assists Kratos and Atreus throughout their journey in the latest game, leaving plenty of open threads for a sequel.
Although Prendergast signed an NDA and knows only a little about the planned future of the series, his comment suggests that a sequel to Ragnarok is to be expected. The popularity of the franchise, along with Ragnarok’s sales of over 11 million copies in a few months from release, reinforces this assumption.
Unlike its predecessor, God of War: Ragnarok is unlikely to receive any DLC, indicating that the return of Tyr in a new game may be the next step for the series. Although the tacit announcement may have surprised some fans, Ragnarok was not announced as a sequel to 2018’s God of War until two years after its release. Nonetheless, it seems that something is definitely in the works.
God of War: Ragnarok received highly positive reviews from both critics and players. The game currently has a Metacritic score of 91 out of 100 based on 109 critic reviews, indicating universal acclaim. The game’s storyline, characters, graphics, and gameplay mechanics were all highly praised. Critics also noted that the game had a strong emotional core that added depth and weight to the already compelling story. Many also praised the game’s voice acting, music, and sound design for creating a truly immersive experience.
The game’s success was not limited to critical acclaim. It also sold over 11 million copies in just a few months after its release, making it one of the best-selling games on the PlayStation 5. Its sales figures were a testament to the anticipation and hype leading up to its release, as well as the quality of the game itself. It also set a new record as the fastest-selling PlayStation 5 exclusive game ever, surpassing the previous record holder, Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Overall, God of War: Ragnarok‘s reception was a resounding success, with many fans eagerly anticipating the possibility of a sequel.
