The God of War series may one day feature an Egyptian or Mayan setting

This year’s new God of War game will serve as a sort of soft reboot for the franchise, transposing series protagonist Kratos from his default place in the realm of Ancient Greek Mythology into the world of Norse gods and monsters. However, according to the game’s director, that could just be the start of Kratos’ overseas travels.

Speaking with Game Informer in their latest magazine issue, God of War game director Cory Barlog said that Kratos could eventually venture beyond the realm of Norse Mythology, and he specifically name dropped both Egyptian and Mayan settings as potential future options:

"The Greek games were the Greek era of God of War. Moving on, the next mythological belief system he interacts with became the Norse era of God of War. But we may end up going on to the Egyptian era and the Mayan era and so on and so forth."

Obviously this means that the God of War development team is already looking towards the future, specifically subsequent games that it could make if God of War proves to be a success. Now, obviously it’s still way too early to be speculating too much, especially since God of War isn’t even out yet, but it’s still exciting to know the Barlog and his team are already planning for the far future.
