The PlayStation 4 was a huge success for Sony, now the market leader. The Japanese manufacturer can now count on its PlayStation 5, which is out of stock all over the world. But if the PlayStation has been crushing Microsoft's Xbox for three generations, it is no accident. Sony can count on a large catalog of exclusives since the first machine . Among the popular franchises is obviously God of War, developed by Santa Monica Studio. And while its reboot was a huge critical and commercial success, its sequel was announced and carries the sweetness of God of War Ragnarök.
A game, at first glance, intended to be a PlayStation 5 exclusive.
Recently Jim Ryan raised doubts about a cross-gen God of War Ragnarök . Kratos creator David Jaffe agrees.
Kratos creator believes God of War will be released on PlayStation 4 and 5
David Jaffe is not just anyone in the gaming industry. The man is at the origin of Kratos, hero of the God of War franchise which has been making the heyday of the PlayStation for several generations. But David Jaffe no longer works for Santa Monica Studio, and is therefore not close to the development of future games. This does not prevent the man from having his own opinion as to the machines which will host God of War Ragnarök.
As the tweet below shows, David Jaffe gave his opinion during a live. Regarding a God of War Ragnarök on both Sony consoles, the man explains “ I'm sure the next God of War will be released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 . Of course, Jim Ryan suggested it ”.
This intuition is reminiscent of Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales and Horizon II Forbidden West cases. The games, at first glance PlayStation 5 exclusives, weren't . These were also available on PlayStation 4.
It would seem that Sony's strategy is simple: not to force the transition to the PlayStation 5 . The Japanese manufacturer is banking on time for its new machine to become more democratic. A strategy that Microsoft also adopts with its Xbox.
Seems like #GodOfWarRagnarok will be cross-gen title after all!
“I'm sure the next #GodofWar will be # PS4 , # PS5 . Of course it will ”david jaffe says.
