Christopher Judge, The Voice of God of War’s Kratos, Hints at 2018 Release
At last year’s E3 Conference, Sony kicked off their presentation with some gameplay footage of the next God of War title. After the epic video, fans wanted to know when they could fight the gods of Norse Mythology with the franchise’s hero, Kratos. Sony and developers Santa Monica Studios have kept a tight lid on the release date, despite the outcry from fans, but voice of Kratos Christopher Judge may have spilled the beans.
In previous titles, Kratos was voiced by Terrence Carson. This time around, actor Christopher Judge will provide the dialogue for the hero. Judge is most well known for his role as Teal’c on the action/sci-fi series Stargate: SG1. The actor took to Twitter to announce his role shortly after the new game’s big reveal. Despite the tight lips surrounding the project, a closer look at Judge’s Twitter profile shows that we won’t be slaying Valkyries until some time next year:
With no confirmation from the developers, this should be considered speculation. As stated previously, Santa Monica Studios has kept pretty quiet in terms of the expected release date for the new God of War. Game Director Cory Barlog was once asked by a fan if there was a definite release date set, in which he replied, “it will be done when it’s done.” With this year’s E3 just around the corner, fans may get a confirmation in the near future.
Some fans often get so excited for a game that they get anxious and/or impatient for that title’s release. It seems that Santa Monica Studios is trying to avoid giving out a time frame in which fans can expect the new video game, and that may be for good reasons. With a high profile project such as God of War, the developers may be doing their best to not rush things. Setting an unrealistic goal and pushing out a title just for the sake of sales is a format that has been seen too often in recent years, and with a poor outcome. So, if Santa Monica wants to take their time to provide the best quality video game they can, so be it.
Do you think that the latest installment to the God of War franchise is worth waiting another year for? Are you ready to meet the son of Kratos? What other titles are you looking forward to?
