A writer at Santa Monica Studio says the story for God of War Ragnarok isn’t done yet, even after the recently released free Valhalla DLC. Fans were happy to discover that the new DLC, which pits Kratos against several roguelike challenges in the realm of Valhalla, wasn’t just a fun little add-on but also included some substantial story content that acted as an epilogue to the base game. It seems like there might be a bit more story on the horizon.
Taking to Twitter/X recently, Santa Monica Studio senior writer Orion Walker stated, “You really think the credits are the end of the story? C’mon. C’mon now.” Walker is referring specifically to the end of God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla and how some players believed that rolling credits on the DLC would mark the end of Kratos’ journey. That doesn’t seem to be the case as fans are currently speculating that more story content will arrive in the future, possibly in the form of more DLC or an expansion.
Back in October, a report surfaced claiming that Santa Monica Studio was working on some sort of half-sequel to God of War Ragnarok (similar to Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales). Since Valhalla is less of a “half-sequel” and more of a small (but significant) bit of additional content, fans believe that the true, larger story continuation is still to come. Half-sequels, as they call it, are a great way to keep players invested and satisfied with new content while mitigating the long waits between big new entries.
You really think the *credits* are the end of the story? C'mon. C'mon now. #GodOfWarRagnarokValhalla

As revealed in the ending of God of War Ragnarok, there’s still potential for more stories to be told in this universe – even if it doesn’t include Kratos in future entries. With the Greek and Norse saga now concluded (for the most part), fans are setting their sights on what comes next, with several mythologies to explore including Egyptian, Japanese and Celtic.
God of War Ragnarok: Valhalla is now out for PS4 and PS5.
