God Of War star wants to see Atreus 'grow into a man' in next game

God Of War star wants to see Atreus 'grow into a man' in next game

Atreus' actor Sunny Suljic thinks that "there are so many routes where Atreus can go" in the next God of War game.

What’s next for the God of War series? It’s a great question, but almost certainly not one we’re going to get an answer to any time soon.

At the time of writing, we still don’t know when God of War Ragnarök’s New Game Plus mode is being added to the game. It was originally given a ‘spring 2023’ release window, but we’ve been in spring for a while now, so it’s a bit weird that we’ve not heard anything. Needless to say, given that we're still waiting for that, it’s probably going to be quite a while until the next instalment.

However, it sounds like Atreus’ actor, Sunny Suljic, has some ideas for what he’d like the next game to cover. Namely, he’d like Atreus to “grow into a man”.

“I think there are so many routes where Atreus can go, and people working on the narrative aspects will have a better idea of this than I would,” Suljic told TheGamer in a recent interview. “I think it would be cool to see Atreus grow into a man. I’ve had the opportunity to grow up with the character as well, so I feel like I can see myself a lot in the character as well, so I feel like we’re both developing at the same time.”

He also spoke about his experience working with Kratos’ actor, Christopher Judge: “After working with Chris for so long, he’s like a father to me. So a lot of these scenes felt real as we were doing the takes and it was really impactful. It felt like a lot of the work wasn’t even coming off the script, it was all natural dialogue and which was kind of a foreign feeling to me compared to other projects.”

Given how well received Ragnarök was, there’s no doubt that if (hopefully, when) we get another instalment, it’ll be sure to knock our socks off all over again. There was a four-year gap between the last two games though, so don’t get your hopes up for anything being announced soon.
