The latest God of War is packed with secrets and references to past titles and other pieces of media. However, director Cory Barlog says that fans haven't found all of the secrets that the game holds. It's not just a small thing either, as he talked about it being a relatively major Easter Egg.

This quote from Barlog will surely get God of War fans excited to jump back into the third-person action game. His cryptic teases will serve as a way to spark the flame within the community. Whether or not fans will be able to crack the code on the game's final secret remains to be seen, but there's no denying that they will try their best to do so.
The already found secrets of God of War have really shown how much care and craft went into every design aspect of the PlayStation 4 exclusive. It clearly was a passion project for Sony Santa Monica and director Cory Barlog has been vocal about how much the game means to him from a personal standpoint. All of the hidden references have made the latest entry in the series a celebration of its past, and
