It was leaked hours before being officially announced, but Kratos will be the next PlayStation character to debut on PC. He will do so with God of War, his 2018 game, a kind of conceptual reboot that nevertheless continues the story of its protagonist. After Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition and Days Gone, this version for PC has not been developed by any Sony studio. The Japanese company itself has confirmed this in a statement sent to Arstechnica.
Sony Santa Monica acts as supervisor of the project, although the developer who is working on the adaptation is Jetpack Interactive, a Canadian studio located in Vancouver and specialized in ports. Among the games they have adapted are Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare II, Dark Souls 2 on PC and several games in the NBA Live saga. VGC further notes that one of Jetpack’s senior programmers points out on his Linkedin which form for the development of God of War: Ragnarok, which suggests a possible computer version in the future.

The story takes us to Norse mythology, the land of the Vikings. Kratos and his son Atreus They live in an inclement place, cold as the iceberg and full of dangers. They will soon be immersed in a new adventure, which will forge their relationship as they discover more about themselves. This title directed by Cory Barlog begins a new saga, which will conclude with the sequel.
God of War: Ragnarok will mean the denouement of the argument in this mythology, but it will not shelve the saga. Preview for PS4 and PS5, nothing has been said about a hypothetical PC version yet.
