God of War Could Have Been Set in Ancient Egypt Concept Art Revealed

God of War 2018 was first planned to take place in the deserts of Egypt, according to Sony Santa Monica Studio.

Gearnuke reports that Barlog described how he had the deciding vote when it came to the setting, which is something the developer has touched on before, saying that a Norse setting allowed for more of a focus on Kratos than an Egyptian civilisation would.

Unfortunately for Barlog, he soon found out what Yoshida felt about the game; "In fact, he only told one of my friends, who he saw at a party", continued the director; "said, 'Oh, you're working on God of War?". Barlog also talked a bit about the pushback the team ran into during the development and testing phase. He shared many interesting behind-the-scenes details, development issues and even concept art that has never been seen before.

A lot of fans feel that the Norse setting for the latest God of War adventure was the flawless fit.

Barlog said that the team's vision for a new God of War was in its infancy at the time God of War Ascension was released.

The ending of God Of War implies that the Norse setting will remain for at least one more game, but it's entirely possible the series could move onto Egypt at some point later.
