God Of War Director Teases PlayStation 5 Sequel

Cory Barlog, director of God of War, has opened up about how the PlayStation 5 will shape the next game in the series.

Speaking on the latest episode of Gary Whitta’s Animal Talking podcast, Barlog teased just how big God of War Part 2 will be (not an official title, but if I say “God of War 2” y’all come for me).

Barlog teased eager GoW fans about how the sequel will work with the PS5’s tech, saying: “There’s some really cool stuff that I think we’re going to be able to do.”

This is definitely interesting considering all we know about the PS5’s haptics, which reportedly will be sensitive enough to allow players to “feel in-game rain.” What’s even more interesting is that this is the closest we’ve come to any sort of official confirmation that God of War Part 2 is even happening.

The 2018 hit ended on a cliffhanger and scooped enough awards and fan praise to almost definitely secure a sequel, but any confirmed developmental news and official announcements have yet to surface.

Barlog went on to add: “This [console generation] feels like it’s going to be a bit different… we’ve gotten a really good foundation of understanding so transitioning in between generations is going to be a bit less of a massive leap of faith.”

Chatting specifically about the PlayStation 5’s SSD and its promise to dramatically cut loading times, Barlog spoke of how this will work for the next God of War game, saying: “We’ve [previously] gone to great lengths in this series, to try to hide any kind of loading.”

Sounds like God of War Part 2 and the PS5 are a match made in heaven! Hopefully we’ll be seeing some official word of the as-of-yet-unannounced game soon.
