The studio mentioned in the post that the re-envisioning of God of War and portraying it in a different light was a great risk that they took and it paid off handsomely, all thanks to its fans. “When Cory Barlog first brought us this transformative vision of a father and son embarking on an incredible journey together, a journey to honour a wife and a mother… but also one where a boy would teach his father how to be human again; and the father (Kratos) would teach his son how to be a measured god, we knew we had something special for our fans.”
“Yet, change is hard. Change to a longstanding franchise comes with immeasurable doubt, a studio defining risk and a huge leap of faith.
