Does Kratos die in God of War Ragnarok?

Kratos does not die in God of War Ragnarok. With Atreus, Freyr, Freya, and his other allies at his side, Kratos succeeds in stopping Odin and bringing about the fall of Asgard. At the end of the game, he sends Atreus off on his own journey to find more giants and continues to protect the nine realms with Freya by his side as his companion.

In the final cutscene, Kratos sees an image of of himself being worshipped and loved and overcome with emotion he remarks that this is a path ahead for himself he previously could never see before. With these shrines detailing the paths of the individual characters in the game, this suggests that at some point in the future, Kratos will finally be worshipped and become a God of War heralded and not hated.

Of course, with this being the end of the Norse saga of his journey, we have to assume that this future for Kratos will happen elsewhere in the world. But, as God of War Ragnarok teaches us, not all prophecies or foretold futures end up coming true as the one showing Kratos’ death did not come true.
