God of War: Ragnarok Delayed

The head of PlayStation Studios, Herman Hulst, shared an update about God of War: Ragnarok in a PlayStation Blog Q+A. He said:

We have, currently, two very big, very narrative-driven games in development: Horizon Forbidden West and the next God of War. And for both of those, they’re frankly affected by access to performance capture and talent. For Horizon, we think we are on track to release this holiday season. But that isn’t quite certain yet, and we’re working as hard as we can to confirm that to you as soon as we can.

And for God of War, the project started a little later. So we’ve made the decision to push that game out to next year, to ensure that Santa Monica Studio can deliver the amazing God of War game that we all want to play.

With these things, something’s gotta give. It cannot be the quality of our titles, and it surely won’t be the health or the wellbeing of our amazing team.

He also confirmed that the game will be cross-gen, released for both the PS5 and the PS4.

Here’s the originally released teaser for the new game:

The God of War franchise shifted dramatically with their 2018 release titled only God of War. After Kratos destroyed the God of Olympus, he traveled to lands of Scandinavia. He worked to leave his old life behind. He married and had a child. The game opens with Kratos giving his late wife a proper Norse send off. She had one request: that her ashes be transfered to the highest hills in the land.

Kratos and his young son Atreus travel the lands searching for their path to this mountain of mythical proportion. Their journey brings their family closer together, and closer to the secrets of the Gods. The sequel will most certainly be expanding on the story from the last game, especially since Thor and Loki were both mentioned in the series. (Shhh, no spoilers!)

God of War: Ragnarok is now set to be release some time in 2022.
