Last year Sony officially confirmed the development of God of War Ragnarok, the sequel to the last serial version released in 2018. The first teaser said the title should appear in 2021, but doubts are gradually growing about that.
God of War Ragnarok Delayed To 2022?
One of the most eagerly anticipated games for the PlayStation 5 is God of War Ragnarok, the continuation of the last part of the action game series published in 2018. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) officially confirmed the development of the title as part of the last major State of Play edition last year with a small teaser. It only said that the title should appear in 2021. At the moment, however, doubts seem to arise.
In a recently published GQ interview, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan spoke about the fact that the company would go into this year with a good feeling. The reason for this are the planned releases of exclusive titles such as Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Returnal, and Horizon: Forbidden West.
It is noticeable here that Ryan did not say a word about God of War Ragnarok, which now arouses fears among some fans that the title might not be released in 2021 anymore.
These fears are given additional weight by the usually very well-informed industry insider and Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier. A message he posted on Twitter recently suggests that the next adventure for Kratos and his son Atreus will be extremely unlikely to come this year.
Sony Interactive Entertainment has not yet officially confirmed that the release of God of War Ragnarok would have to be postponed. For this reason, Jim Ryan’s failure to mention the title, although it is quite conspicuous, should probably not be overrated.
Accordingly, it remains to be seen until SIE or the Sony Santa Monica developer studio again publicly comment on the game as part of an update.
