God of War Ragnarok Expected Released Date for 2022

Initially teased in 2020, God of War Ragnarok was expected to launch in 2021 first. However, at the Sony PlayStation Showcase on September 9, 2021, Sony’s developer Santa Monica and the publisher PlayStation Studios revealed that God of War Ragnarok has been delayed till 2022.

They didn’t share a release date for 2022. At this moment, there is no official or confirmed release date available for God of War Ragnarok. We only know that the game is definitely coming in 2022, but when, that is not confirmed yet.

Representatives from Sony have confirmed at multiple instances that the game isn’t delayed again, and will launch in 2022. Recently, Jason Schreier, Bloomberg journalist and reliable Sony insider confirmed via Reddit that the game is still on track and will release later this year.

On the official PlayStation website as well, God of War Ragnarok’s release date is mentioned as “2022.” Sony has also released a list of 22 games to look out for in 2022, and God of War Ragnarok was included in it.

If we take a look at the leaks, it is expected that the upcoming God of War game will release in Q3 2022. A PlayStation Database leak also hinted that God of War Ragnarok will release on September 30, 2022.

Why is God of War Ragnarok being delayed?

Sid Shuman, head of PlayStation Studios has explained that Santa Monica Studio is taking more time before releasing God of War Ragnarok in an attempt to “deliver the amazing God of War game that we all want to play.”

He also stated that “Developing a game that will follow in the footsteps of the stellar God of War will no doubt take a lot of time and polish. So we’re happier seeing the game delayed and perfected than rushed out.”

Before that, the game got delayed in 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic but it is currently on track now. There will be no more delays, hopefully. And, we will soon be able to witness the launch of the iconic sequel.

Will God of War Ragnarok be available on PS4 and PC?

It is known that God of War Ragnarok will likely be available on the PlayStation 4 as it will feature a cross-platform release launching on both PS4 and PS5. Herman Hulst, head of Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studio, mentioned that the game which was earlier expected to be a PS5 exclusive will be arriving on PS4 as well.

However, there is still no update if God of War Ragnarok will be available for Microsoft Windows PC. Just like the prequel, we expect that the game will initially be exclusive to PS4 and PS5. Later, we can expect the release on PC.

God of War Ragnarok: Gameplay, Story, and Trailer

God of War Ragnarok will be the direct sequel to 2018’s God of War. The ending of the prequel sows the seeds for the Old Norse tale of Ragnarok. During the ending, the Norse god of Thunder, Thor comes to Kratos’ house potentially to seek revenge for Kratos killing his sons and his brother Baldur.

As the threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer, Kratos and Atreus find themselves choosing between the safety of their family and the safety of the realms…
