“God of War’ – Ragnarök Is Reportedly Planned For 2022 November Release Date”
Many people anticipated that God of War Ragnarök would be the next huge game to be delayed, and that it would instead be released in 2023. According to a recent source, not only will the action game be released in 2022, but it will also be released in November.
According to Bloomberg,
According to Bloomberg, three people familiar with the game’s production confirmed the November release date and rejected claims that it had been pushed back to the following year. Two of those insiders also claimed that Sony would reveal the exact date later this month.
Sony never officially announced a release date or month for Ragnarök, but according to the story, it was aiming for a September release. This is supported by PlayStation Game Size on Twitter, which recently noticed the game’s placeholder date change from September 30 to December 31 on the store’s backend (it’s more meant to signify a movement in months than than a specific day). Internally, however, it has been postponed multiple times due to the pandemic’s realities and “other production issues.” It’s still possible that the game may be delayed, so it’s not a certain that it will be released in November, but that is the current plan.
This correction follows a GameReactor story stating that the game would be delayed until 2023. After the Bloomberg report was published, the outlet apologised for the error.
Users were concerned that the game had been delayed due to Santa Monica Studio’s secrecy. There haven’t been any new trailers for the game since September 2021, save from an accessibility update in April. Some fans believe it was pushed due to its absence from Summer Game Fest Live and Sony’s latest State of Play.
Even before the Bloomberg report, there was other evidence pointing to a 2022 release, in addition to the aforementioned PlayStation Game Size revelation. A Korean rating body recently gave the game a rating. It was still set for 2022, according to Animation Director Bruno Velazquez, who tweeted in April. Sony also has a significant gap in its holiday lineup, with The Last of Us Part I launching in September and little else following, implying that Kratos will be the first-party title to fill that void.
