God of War: Ragnarok could still make its 2022 launch window. Bloomberg sources say the big PS4 and PS5 game will be released in November, despite recent claims it may be delayed until 2023. Sony’s Santa Monica Studio is poised to announce the release date later in June, the tipsters said. The debut is said to have been pushed back from September, but otherwise there don’t seem to be any concerns.
European sources to talk until game reactor had maintained that the game would not be ready until next year. The no-shows at both the June 2 State of Play event and this week’s Summer Games Fest have fueled speculation about a long delay. The Bloomberg contacts said there had been “several” internal and public delays for Ragnarok since the 2020 announcement, with at least part because of the pandemic and the need for remote work.
Sony has not commented on the rumor and there is no guarantee that the new god of war will stay on track. A November ship date wouldn’t be surprising, though. Game developers often plan to release their biggest titles during the all-important Christmas shopping season, especially before Black Friday (the day after American Thanksgiving in November). And when Ragnarok could easily be the most important PlayStation game of the near future, a Christmas premiere could be crucial to Sony’s bottom line.
