God of War Actor Christopher Judge Seems Very Happy to Be Returning as Kratos in PS5 Sequel
God of War Kratos actor Christopher Judge shared some fun videos on social media following the reveal of the PS5 installment.
Despite seeing virtually nothing related to the game itself, likely the most notable announcement for many during yesterday’s PS5 Showcase came when Santa Monica Studio confirmed that it is indeed making another God of War game. The reveal was met with joy from many at the studio who have been secretly toiling away on the project for quite some time now, but perhaps no one else seemed more excited than Kratos himself.
Christopher Judge, who played Kratos in 2018’s God of War reboot, took to Twitter shortly after the announcement of the PS5 installment in the series and gave fans a little treat. In the first of two videos that Judge posted, he showed himself playing around with the settings on a microphone slowly. After fiddling with it for a moment, Judge let out a bellowing, “Boy!” from behind the camera. It was perhaps the best way of all to confirm that Judge would once again be playing the role of Kratos in the upcoming entry.

The second video Judge shared saw him showing off some of the God of War memorabilia that he has lying around in what looks to be the actor’s home. After turning around the camera to then have it show his face, Judge stared sternly into the lens at first before he then put a big smile on his face and began shimmying. Judge also notably used the hashtag “#GodOfWarRagnarok” which could perhaps be the game’s full title. Such an announcement hasn’t been made by Sony or Santa Monica Studio just yet, however, with the reveal trailer simply saying that “Ragnarok is Coming.”

While there is a whole lot that we still don’t know about God of War on PS5, we should start to hear a lot more about the game in the near future assuming that it can hit its planned 2021 release window. I have major doubts about that launch window (especially given the year we have currently had) but I can’t wait to learn more. At the very least, the confirmation that Christopher Judge will be returning as Kratos is enough to get me excited for now.
