You might have been very happy when Sony confirmed during its E3 2016 press conference that a new God of War game is in the pipeline. You might have also been a bit confused to hear Kratos sound different in the God of War 4 trailer, and that’s because the original voice actor for Kratos has not been brought back for the new game. Someone else is voicing the iconic character of this franchise.
This was confirmed by none other than the original voice actor himself on Twitter. TC Carson confirmed that he’s not voicing Kratos in God of War 4, saying that “Sony went in a new direction. Let ’em know what you think.”
Carson has long been the voice of Kratos. In all of the character’s game appearances, he’s the one who voiced him, even in Mortal Kombat and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, God of War 4 is the first time he’s not going to voice Kratos.
Kratos is now voiced by Stargate SG-1 actor Christopher Judge, who confirmed on Twitter that he’s been brought in to voice the iconic character for the new God of War game.
The game is in development and Sony hasn’t confirmed yet when God of War 4 is going to be released. As expected, the new game is focused on Norse mythology.
