Eric Williams, director of God of War: Ragnarok, was a guest on a recent podcast hosted by Kinda Funny Games. Thanks to him we learned that the developer would like to tackle the development of the next Castlevania. He also referred to the potential future of Santa Monica Studio's latest game. It appears that there is nothing to expact a story expansions.
Those who have looked at the plot of both Nordic installments of the series have noted that several issues remain unresolved. Hopes for their closure were sparked by Cory Barlog, the director of most of God of War games released since 2007. He laconically answered fan speculation and questions, ultimately stating that the aforementioned issues "are a story for another game.".
One could therefore assume that Santa Monica is at least preparing a story expansion for Ragnarok (since we know that a direct sequel is not in the plans). Apparently, however, there is nothing to expect. The aforementioned Eric Williams stated that the game contained everything it was supposed to contain. Thus, the story presented in it is complete. His statement on the subject can be found at the end of the video below. The excerpt in question begins at one hour and 18 minutes mark.
God of War: Ragnarok has been available since November 9, only on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. As expected, the game was received very warmly, although one review drew attention to itself with a rather harsh score. Also PETA seems to be the displeased, appealing for a way to omit scenes depicting violence against animals.
