Will Sony release a God of War Ragnarök PC version? The sequel to the reboot from 2018 is known as a PlayStation-exclusive, but it might still come to PC, just like the previous game. There are first hints that it could get a port.
God of War Ragnarök is finally here, with the game having released on November 9 for PS4 and PS5 to rave reviews. Many fans, myself included, have had an amazing time seeing how the story of Kratos and his son Atreus continues after the brilliant reboot in 2018. The best way to play that first game is probably on PC now, even though everyone knows that God of War is a PlayStation-exclusive series. But the port was really great and made a fantastic game even better.
What about GoW Ragnarök though? Will the sequel also come to PC? First hints towards a possible PC version have been revealed, including in an interview with series creator Cory Barlog and a tasty clue left by one of the developers.
God of War Ragnarök: PC Version Not Confirmed Yet
The answer is simple, but complicated: God of War Ragnarök will probably come to PC, but there's no guarantee, as a port hasn't been announced yet. We will explain why it is likely in a minute. But let's first look at what has been said publicly about it. Cory Barlog, co-creator of the series and director of the 2018 reboot, was asked about a PC version of Ragnarök in an interview by Game Informer. And he was very coy about it.
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.
Now, this is obviously not very encouraging. We still believe that God of War Ragnarök will come to PC though. Why? First of all: Because Sony is still bringing all of their major titles to the PC, it's just taking a while. We already got Horizon: Zero Dawn, Days Gone, most recently Spider-Man and also the Last of Us remake is coming to PC.
Of course, the first God of War game also came to PC and was a big success. We assume that Sony will do the same with the sequel. Why wouldn't they?
But we also got another, more concrete hint towards a PC version recently. This one comes from Jetpack Interactive, which was the lead development studio for the PC version of God of War (2018). On its updated LinkedIn page, it states that the studio “continues to work with Sony Santa Monica on the God of War franchise”. That pretty clearly suggests that Jetpack will also make a PC version for Ragnarök.
Obviously, this is just speculation until we get the official confirmation of a PC port. But like we said, this could take a while. God of War (2018) and Marvel's Spider-Man took a whopping four years to come to PC, Horizon took three and so on. At least The Last of Us Part 1 is coming a little quicker than that. But you should still be ready to wait a little while...
