"God Of War" has been deemed by many as a masterpiece as it continues to rake in good reviews from both game critics and players.

With the success it's been getting as of late, it's no wonder that sequels could be being worked on.

Five more games

Game Director Corey Barlog recently sat down with Kotaku Splitscreen's Jason Schreier as he spilled out some more intel about "God of War" and as to why it took him quite a while before the game went gold. They also talked about the future of the franchise as Barlog revealed what could be up ahead for the father and son tandem of Kratos and Atreus.

When asked as to whether he got worried in showing that Odin's behind all what had happened in the game, but not actually showing the god himself would be almost like a tease to its player base, he replied "totally," though he pointed out that it's what he wanted. He further explained that the most compelling series for him are the ones that don't do everything in the first adding that they've set a lot of stuff up so that the power of the characters including the interactions in the following sequels will be more resounding.

That said, Schreier then asked the game director as to how much of the future game plan he has in mind. Barlog said that he's thinking of five more "God of War" titles, though he made it clear that he wants to figure out how to make the development a lot quicker since he revealed that they started from scratch and redid a lot during those five years of development.

'Infinity War' Easter eggs

Meanwhile, it has been discovered that the new "GoW" had some "Infinity War" Easter eggs on it.

This part may have a bit of spoilers ahead for those who haven't played the game yet so this pretty much says that you've been warned.

The game has this talisman known as the Shattered Gauntlet of Ages ("GoW" version of Infinity Gauntlet). Its description stated that it's an ancient relic of Hel deemed to be too powerful to remain whole. Fragments (stones) of its former strength are said to be scattered throughout the realm. The fragments/stones that the game refers to are as follows:

  • Ivaldi's Corrupted Mind (Mind Stone)
  • Eye of the Outer Realm (Space Stone)
  • Asgard's Shard of Existence (Reality Stone)
  • Njord's Temporal Stone (Time Stone)
  • Andvari's Soul (Soul Stone)
  • Musphelheim Eye of Power (Power Stone)

Equip any of the three above-mentioned stones and see the item work wonders.
