Will God of War Ragnarok Release on PC? Cory Barlog Answers
Will God of War Ragnarok be on PC? The director of the game, Cory Barlog, says that he has 'no idea' about it if the game will come on computers.
Today God of War, Sony Santa Monica’s masterpiece for PS4, arrived on PC, and on the occasion of the launch, the director Cory Barlog gave a long interview to Game Informer in which he revealed that he did not know if the sequel, God of War Ragnarok, will be available outside the PlayStation ecosystem and release on PC. Let us find out what the director has to comment on this development.
Will God of War Ragnarok Be On PC?
When asked if there will be a chance to see God of War Ragnarok, coming to PS4 and PS5 this year, on PC before having to wait four years as happened with the God of War reboot, Barlog said: “I have no idea. Right now, we’re taking it one game at a time, kind of looking at each one and determining, ‘Okay, is this the best thing?’ And we’ll gauge how it does. Do people enjoy it? Did we do it right? Is there anything we did wrong? What can we do better in the future if we do this again? But at the end of the day, ultimately, it’s Sony’s decision.”
Also in this interview with Barlog, it was asked how much influenced the decision of Santa Monica Studio was in the choice of Sony to bring God of War to PC. Apparently, the studios themselves have requested the Japanese company several times to get their games on Steam and Epic Games Store, feedback then welcomed positively by the management.
“I think it was the collective of studios all over saying this is a really good idea. We should be looking into this” he replied. “Eventually, I think it reached that tipping point. When we had sent so many suggestion box suggestions that they were like, “I’m tired of hearing all this. Fine, we’ll do this.”
“It’s a process,” Barlog added. “We’re still figuring it out as a company and as individual studios how to do this and what the process and strategy will be.”
Sony released Horizon Zero Dawn on PC in August 2020, while Days Gone arrived a few months later. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, on the other hand, will be available on PC in the course of 2022.
While God of War Ragnarok will release sometime this year 2022, God of War (2018) is now available on PS4 as well as PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Sony Santa Monica Studio released a new trailer for the PC version of God of War that you can check out below.
