PS5: Generation change according to the GoW director very easy – games up-to-date

from Andreas Bertits
Cory Barlog, God of War Game Director for the PS4, said the move to the next-gen PS5 is easier than switching from the PS3 to the PS4. He is also enthusiastic about the console's SSD.

When a new generation of consoles appears, this can be a major challenge for developers. Over the years they have got used to the "old" system and can handle it well. Then something new comes onto the market that they first have to familiarize themselves with. But when switching from the PS4 to the PS5 should it be different.

A simple generation change

According to Cory Barlog, Game Director of God of War, this time around it is not all back to the beginning. "With every generation you always have the feeling that we have mastered them, and then they say:" Oh, there is a new generation "and you say:" But I only just got the current one! "However, I think "It's going to be a little different this time around. It feels like we have a really good foundation for understanding, so the transition between generations will be a little less of a massive leap into the unknown."

Cory Barlog is particularly evident from the Playstation 5's SSD (buy now) excited. According to him, it allows you to do really cool stuff. The next-gen should enable the developers of various studios to provide many surprises. What does that mean for a potential God of War 2? Will we maybe get an open world this time? The developers didn't dare to do this for the last game. The PS5 should now offer the possibility to create a really detailed and lively open game world. Maybe Cory Barlog will surprise us when he announces his new game at some point.

So far we don't know what he's working on with the "Sony Santa Monica" studio. Apparently, a show around the PS5 is planned for the end of August. Maybe we'll find out more then.
