Sony will indeed have one of its marquee upcoming games out before the end of the year, as God of War: Ragnarok will reportedly release in November. That’s according to Bloomberg, which notes the potential for the game to still be delayed. Previous speculation has suggested the PS4 and PS5 game would be pushed back to 2023, but for now, Ragnarok is slated to come this fall.
Bloomberg stated that Raganrok’s official release date should be announced before the end of June, but nothing is set in stone yet, and it’s possible the date could still shift beyond November. It was apparently intended to be released in September at one point, only to be pushed to the new November window.
In May, Ragnarok was rated for release in Korea, suggesting the game was due out in the relatively near future. Sony has yet to officially announce Ragnarok’s release date, however, so all of this information should be taken with a grain of salt for now.
God of War: Ragnarok was originally set for launch in 2021, but Kratos actor Christopher Judge suffered an injury that delayed production. The PS4 and PS5 game will face a little less competition this year in the first-party race, as Microsoft and Bethesda’s Starfield has been delayed until 2023.
Some people continue to believe that Ragnarok will be delayed until 2023, but the game’s animation director said earlier this year that Ragnarok remains on schedule to launch in 2022. Developer Cory Barlog gave an update on Ragnarok earlier this year, saying everyone on the team is “heads-down, hard at work” on the project.
“We are perfectionists,” Barlog said, adding that he hopes to be able to share more updates and insights into Ragnarok as soon as possible. “We don’t want to hold any of this back. So please, hold tight – know that something cool is coming.”
