The PC version of God of War has set some records since its release last week. And also the Steam-Charts took the title by storm and knocked long-placed games off the throne.
But what about its successor title? Sony is planning a PC port for God of War: Ragnarök? Creative Director Cory Barlog von Santa Monica Studio thinks it’s possible.
PC ports on the rise
Lots of exclusive console titles from Sony have already made it to the PC. In recent years, the publisher has massively expanded its contingent in this direction. To Horizon: Zero Dawn and Days Gone 2018’s God of War is the latest Playstation game to receive a PC port.
God of War seems to be as successful on home computers as it is on consoles. Many are now wondering if the upcoming sequel to the masterpiece will eventually be released for the PC. The question was also officially raised in an interview with the online magazine Game Informer Cory Barlog, the creative director of the development studio Santa Monica Studio.
Cory Barlog has worked on several God of War titles. for God of War 2 2007 and God of War 2018 he served as creative director. Also for the sequel God of War: Ragnarök (buy now ) which is due to appear in 2022, he takes on this role.
Will there be a PC port for God of War: Ragnarok?
When asked if Ragnarök will get the same treatment as its predecessor, Barlog replied that nothing has been decided at the moment, as Sony is proceeding game-by-game when it comes to releasing PC ports. That means Sony depending on the success of the game decides.
“Right now we’re going game by game, we look at each one and we’re like, ‘Okay, that’s the best thing’ and then we see how it goes. Are people enjoying it? Did we do it right? Is there something we did wrong? What can we do better in the future if we do it again? But ultimately it’s Sony’s decision.”
In the same interview, Barlog also spoke about how first-party Playstation studios like Santa Monica Studio had collectively pushed Sony to allow PC ports of PS4 titles. If God of War: Ragnarök is as big a success as Kratos and Atreus’ first great adventure, then nothing should stand in the way of a PC version.
Currently, God of War: Ragnarok is set for release in 2022 for the PS5 and PS4 planned. To get in the mood, we put the PC version of God of War through a test and also did a graphics comparison between the PS4 Pro and the PC.
