Make no mistake about it, as awesome as 2018’s God of War is as a game, if not for Christopher Judge’s performance as Kratos, the game would not have been as impactful without him.
His depth, his emotion, the greatness that he brought to Kratos as he completely changed the meaning of the word ‘boy’ for Gamers forever! Seriously. The series, in my opinion, would not be the same without him.
Sony Santa Monica also agrees, because according to Mr. Judge, they delayed God of War Ragnarok due to his physical condition. Christopher couldn’t walk and needed major surgeries to be able to.
💯 in my feels right now. I need to be forthcoming. This has been approved by no one. To the beloved fandom, Ragnarok was delayed because of me. August 2019, I couldn’t walk. Had to have back surgery, both hips replaced, and, knee surgery. They waited for me too rehab…— Christopher Judge (@iamchrisjudge) September 30, 2021
Of course, additional issues such as the rise of the COVID-19 pandemic certainly didn’t helped, causing the team to work apart, so Christopher shouldn’t put all the blame on his shoulders. He added that SSM was 100% supportive of the situation going on in his life.
No threats, no ,” who do you think you are?” Nothing but love and support. And @SonySantaMonica has never said a word about the delay, and what caused it. Studios are assholes, but this company from top to bottom, should give us hope. What they did for the crew is way more…— Christopher Judge (@iamchrisjudge) September 30, 2021
That I can’t talk about, but I’ve said to all involved, it’s not he classiest thing that ive EVER heard about in this business. Everyone involved in the GofW franchise puts their hearts and souls in every frame you see. I want thank everyone that’s has allowed me to play…— Christopher Judge (@iamchrisjudge) September 30, 2021
And laugh, and love, and cry, without judgement, but with unconditional support and love, in this thing of ALL OF OURS ❤️❤️❤️❤️— Christopher Judge (@iamchrisjudge) September 30, 2021
Another big shock is that Christopher was ready to leave the project upon finding out that Corey Barlog was stepping down from the Director role to working on other projects.
Last thing. Barlog told me @Tribeca that he wouldn’t be directing sequel. I quit.(no joke) he said, do you trust me?(yes) He said Eric is a beast. I said he better be… UPDATE, ERIC WILLIAMS is a motherfuckin BEAST!!! @SonySantaMonica— Christopher Judge (@iamchrisjudge) September 30, 2021
