When Sony Santa Monica first unveiled the sequel to PlayStation 4’s hit God of War, fans were keen to decipher the code provided by Ragnarok. The studio initially had a specific release period in mind, but after a global pandemic, the team will change the expected release period from 2021 to 2022 due to the reality of the state of the game. I decided that.
The news of release window delays is initially recent Playstation blog As for posts, Santa Monica has also created its own dedicated post. A tweet from a California-based studio confirmed that the God of War sequel is expected to be dropped by the end of next year.
“Since the release of God of War’s next teaser last year, we’ve been humbled by the amount of love the community has shown us,” said the tweet above. “We are very grateful to see so many people looking forward to experiencing the next chapter of the journey of Kratos and Atreus.”
“We continue to focus on providing the highest quality games while maintaining the safety and well-being of our teams, creative partners and families.”
The delay is always a bit disappointing when it comes to excitement, but the decision to postpone the release date is usually a wise decision. It’s a good idea to spend some extra time making sure that the shipped experience is promised and that the team wants to share it with the world. An alternative is to rush something out of the door and spend time fixing things that were broken because they were released too early.
In the blog I introduced earlier Position, Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Sid Schumann has confirmed that God of War is among the titles released on both PS5 and PS4 systems. There is still a shortage of consoles of this generation. Given that, cross-generational confirmation is especially good news.
