God Of War 2 Ragnarok, Beau Anthony Jimenez, a veteran sound designer who has worked on several notable Sony games such as The Last of Us: Part II and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, continues his work with PlayStation. Jimenez announced on Twitter that he has joined the PlayStation Sound team, and his first project in this role is a major project: God of War 2: Ragnarok.
Jimenez wrote, “Beyond that, I am thrilled to announce that I’m joining the PlayStation Sound team. “We are honored to help contribute to the PlayStation tradition of pushing the industry forward with seemingly special experiences … starting with the next God of War title!
In addition to Sony games, Jimenez has contributed to Ori and the Blind Forest, The Witness, Destiny 2, and multiple expansions of Destiny 1, including Rising of Iron and The Taken King.
Jimenez describes himself as a “buzzing and sound designer” who is “driven to push the boundaries of game sound and help steer the team toward excellence.” God Of War 2 Ragnarok,”As an interactive sound artist, Beau is driven to explore the relationship between a powerful soundtrack and the technology that controls it: how the two can be improved, dexterous, and cleverly intertwined to create a dynamic sound scene that resonates emotionally with the player,” his official bio says.
The God of War sequel was announced in September 2020 as the “new God of War title,” but fans quickly switched to calling. The game sees the return of Kratos and Atreus as they explore more ancient Norse worlds and encounter more powerful deities looking for retribution. God of War 2: Ragnarok, or whatever its name is, is set to release in 2021 on PlayStation 5. Whether or not it will also release on PS4, as with Horizon: Forbidden West, remains to be seen.
