The director of God of War Ragnarok, Eric Williams, said shortly after the game’s release that it was unlikely to obtain a DLC, but apparently, that view has changed. The Snitch, a well-known leaker, has claimed that a God of War Ragnarok DLC is currently under development at Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Santa Monica Studio.
The leaker claims that he obtained these specifics from the same reliable source that disclosed Rise of the Ronin screenshots before the game’s official reveal. However, we may expect it sometime this year.
Sony Santa Monica had recently advertised open positions on their website, specifically seeking candidates with “knowledge of God of War (2018) and God of War Ragnarok.” Some assumed the postings were for a full-fledged sequel, although it’s possible they were for downloadable content or an expansion instead.
Previous Leaks Linking to a Potential DLC
A voice actor for God of War previously made a cryptic comment about Tyr’s possible return earlier this year. Many people at the time assumed that the voice actor was hinting at Tyr’s position in the God of War TV series, but the most recent leak sheds doubt on that theory.
God of War Ragnarok, unlike the first game in the Norse saga, concluded the story in a way that left players feeling fulfilled. The game, however, was designed with spin-offs in mind, henceforth setting a possibility for a future DLC
Atreus was given a lot of screen time in God of War: Ragnarok. Thus, if the leak is to be believed, it would not be too far-fetched to have a spin-off centred on Kratos’ son, similar to Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
