Santa Monica Studio’s Bruno Velazquez has said that God of War Ragnarok‘s PS4 version will be the developer’s “best” last-gen game, or at least that’s what the team has endeavored to make. In a lengthy interview with Eurogamer, Velazquez revealed that Santa Monica Studio knew “from the very get-go” that God of War Ragnarok will be a PS4 game – an interesting comment in light of Sony’s infamous “we believe in generations” stance.

“When it comes to God of War Ragnarok, from the very get-go, we knew that this was going to be a PS4 game, because we wanted to support the fanbase – we had so many people that had enjoyed the game on PS4,” Velazquez said. “So from the very beginning, we knew, okay, this is going to be a PS4 game; we’re going to make this the best PS4 game we can make.” He added that having a PS5 version is just “icing on the cake.”
God of War Ragnarok was originally announced as a PS5 game. The corporate overlords at Sony later changed their stance to announce PS4 versions for a number of games including Horizon Forbidden West.
