God of War creator David Jaffe has stated that whereas he isn’t aware of Santa Monica Studio’s plans, he strongly believes that God of War Ragnarok can be cross-gen.

In a video posted to YouTube, Jaffe defined that his feedback about Ragnarok most positively being cross-gen throughout a God of War stream have been picked up by the media, and reported as information. However, he was basing his feedback on what he’s learn within the press, particularly remarks by Sony Interactive Entertainment CEO, Jim Ryan. Jaffe then went on to criticize those that react negatively to the concept of video games being cross-gen, arguing that it wouldn’t make sense for Sony to disregard thousands and thousands of PlayStation four gamers in relation to Santa Monica Studio’s flagship sequence.

Although Ryan declined to touch upon Ragnarok‘s standing up to now, he has stated on a number of events that PS5 variations of cross-gen video games, like Horizon: Forbidden West, can be constructed from the bottom as much as make the most of the brand new {hardware}.
