Cory Barlog the director of God Of War has today hinted that future instalments in the game could be based on Egyptian and Mayan Mythologies. The game’s latest instalment is for the first time moving away from Greek mythology to Norse mythology and we should expect a lot of new mythology changes in the future. He told Gamespot “Moving on, the next mythological belief system he interacts with became the Norse era of God of War. But we may end up going on to the Egyptian era and the Mayan era and so on and so forth.” This also adds the possibility that the video games in the future can potentially revisit Greece which will be a huge nostalgia fix for veteran fans of the series.
The game is also taking on more modern video game trends such as exploration and massive open world mechanics. With the head of Sony Santa Monica Studio adding “What became apparent to me was that we were watching this franchise wane a bit,” Studstill continued.“It was getting old. The storyline with Kratos being the hardcore badass – I think people were starting to say, What’s next? I felt like, in order to reinvent, we really needed to turn a lot of things around.”
