God of War hasn't received any major single-player DLC at present, although director Cory Barlog has revealed that it's not down to lack of ideas. 

Speaking on the GameOverGreggy Show, Barlog confirmed he had pitched some DLC suggestions for the critically acclaimed daddy epic, but realised quickly they were probably just a bit too ambitious.

'I had a really fun idea for a DLC that I only regret because I would love to have done that,' he said. But it was too ambitious.'

'It would [have] ended up being its own thing,' Barlog continued, suggesting it may have been similar in scope to The Last of Us' Left Behind expansion. 'Rightfully so, everybody said, 'Dude, this is crazy, this isn't DLC, this is a little too big.'

He also expressed regret that the team at Sony Santa Monica were not able to release God of War's New Game+ mode in time for launch.

God of War was released on PlayStation 4 in March last year, and sold over five million copies during its first month on sale. Given its success, we wouldn't be surprised if Sony was already staffing up for a sequel.
