There are several reasons for this choice. The most important reason is that the first episode took us five years to develop. As for the second, I don’t know exactly how long we’ll take in the end, but chances are it will take us that long. And if we imagine making a third person, we will end up in about 15 years telling one and the same story. I sincerely believe that it is pulling the rope, that it takes too long to conclude this story.
And with everything the team had in mind and Eric’s different proposals, I think we could finish the script with this second episode. Because the thing we wanted to do from the start, the heart of our motivation, is the relationship between Kratos and his son Atreus. We could obviously continue to pull the length, but is it really necessary? By doing this, we lose sight of the primary interest of this relationship.
It will therefore be more of a diptych for this Nordic mythology, which should therefore allow us to see the clash between Kratos and Thor, but probably Odin as well. We remind you that the Santa Monica team hesitated between Norse or Egyptian mythology before embarking on the reboot of GOD OF WAR, and it is not impossible that the rest of the adventures of Kratos will subsequently take place in Egypt.
