We have absolutely no idea where Kratos will find himself at the end of next year's Ragnarök but, assuming he survives the ordeal, he'll no doubt want to move on somewhere new. Where? That's up to Santa Monica Studio, but the fans are very clearly hoping that the next lot of God Of War stories embrace the gods and monsters of ancient Egyptian mythology.
Take a look a God of War Ragnarök in action below:
In the universe of God Of War, it's been established that the various pantheons of gods all exist alongside one another, though they all essentially stay within their own borders and abide by their own rules. That's why Kratos was able to segue from Greek to Norse mythology the way he did, and that's why he would absolutely be able to head to Egypt to start new adventures there.
While Kratos could go anywhere and meet any number of new gods, Egypt seems to be the clear frontrunner. Just take a look at this stunning piece of concept art from Eric Ryan that imagines Kratos and Atreus facing down fearsome new foes in a new region. With well over 16k upvotes on Reddit, it's safe to say it has the support of fans.
Interestingly, Kratos has actually been to Egypt before. A prequel comic released earlier this year tells the story of how Kratos travelled through Egypt on his journey to the Norse realms.
Whether or not this would remain canon in the wake of a God Of War game with an Egyptian setting remains to be seen, but I'd certainly hope so. Having Kratos return to a region he'd previously visited to make amends or pay for past sins would be an interesting way to continue his journey of redemption.
