Earlier this week, Sony confirmed that its upcoming PC port of God of War is being developed by Jetpack Interactive, with Santa Monica Studio overseeing the project. However, a new rumor suggests Jetpack Interactive might also be working on a port of God of War Ragnarok, the upcoming sequel. The rumor comes from the LinkedIn page for Warren Lee, a tools and systems programmer for Jetpack. In his profile, Lee lists God of War Ragnarok as one of the projects he's working on. This has led to a lot of speculation that Sony is already planning a PC port of the game, before it's even been released on PS5!

As pointed out by Game Rant, it's possible this was some kind of mistake on Lee's part, and he meant to list the 2018 God of War, instead. However, given Sony's recent embrace of the PC platform, it's also possible the company is already making plans to port Ragnarok. It's incredibly unlikely Sony would release Ragnarok on PC the same day it releases on PlayStation 5, but it is possible that it won't be as long a wait for the sequel. If Ragnarok ends up matching or exceeding the quality of the previous game, it would make sense that Sony would want as many players to enjoy it as possible.
The God of War franchise is an incredibly important one for Sony. Kratos has become one of the company's biggest icons, even appearing in recent ads for UEFA Champions League, alongside Atreus. Not every PlayStation fan is happy about so many first-party games heading to PC, but it will no doubt expand the audience for the God of War series.
