God of War Ragnarok Might be Missing Something Important
It’s no secret that God of War: Ragnarok is seeing incredible success right now. The game’s been all over social media, with people sharing their top-notch experiences. One professional composer is really happy to see all the love the game is getting – though laments one small detail. She asserts that, despite the fact that her work made it into the final game, she received no credit for it.
this was incredibly disappointing and discouraging for me to learn, and i’d hate for anyone else to go through it.
game devs, please credit EVERYONE who participates in the development of a game. it only makes sense.
have a beautiful day 💙

She begins her Twitter thread by saying: “i’m so happy to see so many folks enjoying God of War Ragnarök! i worked on the editing/arrangement/implementation of the Freya chase scene and Thor boss fight music.”
The senior audio and technical designer on the God of War Ragnarok project has shown his support for this effort, replying with sympathy and a promise to make things right.
I’m very sorry to hear about this Jessica! I fully agree everyone who contributed to a project should be credited.
It may indeed be too late but I will definitely ask about this.

It’s a wave of support that, seemingly, everyone responding to the post shares in. The studio itself, however, has not yet responded.
