The voice of Kratos in God of War: Ragnarok says he tried to quit the sequel over its change of director.
In a series of tweets last night, God of War: Ragnarok actor Christopher Judge revealed that he was responsible for the God of War: Ragnarok delay, having required multiple surgeries in the autumn of 2019. Judge also revealed, however, that he almost abandoned the project for an entirely different reason.
At the end of his string of tweets, Judge said that “[God of War director Cory] Barlog told me at Tribeca [film festival] that he wouldn’t be directing the sequel.” Earlier this year, it was revealed that Barlog had taken on a new role at developer Sony Santa Monica, and would be returning to Ragnarok as a producer rather than a director. He’s been replaced by God of War veteran Eric Williams, but Judge wasn’t initially convinced by the change of lead.
