    Killing Kratos off, not going to happen. The God of War franchise lives and dies with him.

    Atreus having a spinoff, could be a possibility. Maybe clashing with Kratos at some point. Dad vs. son (à la Kratos vs. Zeus)

    Not so long ago I would have said the same about Uncharted and Nathan Drake but here we are. But I'm not seeing a good reason to kill Kratos. Just doing it for change is lazy and Santa Monica aren't lazy. Any change could spell some separation from traditional God of War, something seismic like Assassin's Creed becoming a RPG.

    God of War has just been revitalised and the PS4 was hugely popular, this is not the time to shake it up again.

    The way I see it, the shakeup that was planned was having Atreus become the face of the new God of War. I viewed GoW (2018) as the first of the transition series. Otherwise I see no reason why Atreus was introduced to the series. Perhaps they don't kill him off, perhaps they just have him sort of retire ala Marcus Fenix with the Gears series.

    They've, IMO, successfully transitioned from Marcus being the lead character to him being a background character after introducing his children. I believe they likely originally planned to kill him off, but due to how popular he is with the fans, they kept him around as important background filler.

    Or maybe they do a Batman and Robin, except with Kratos and Atreus. They've gone to a lot of work to establish a base from which to push Atreus.

    Regards,

    Atreus exist because of Last of Us and of how uncreative and obvious game creators can be.

    There's a beta for it? :(

    Argh usually I always try to get multiple codes for big game beta / alpha. But nowadays I never follow any beta / alpha anymore


    The downside of having jobs with uncertain work hours....
