The recent announcement of the postponement of Starfield and Redfall to 2023 has prompted players, insiders and analysts to try to understand if God of War Ragnarok could suffer the same fate, despite the Sony Santa Monica game is scheduled for this year. Does God of War Ragnarok come out in 2022 or is it really in danger of being postponed?
Fear arises from the fact that we are now halfway through the year and Ragnarok’s marketing campaign hasn’t actually started yet, an anomaly for a big AAA blockbuster ideally coming out within six months of now. Jason Schreier has stated that nothing is certain in this industry and he would not be surprised, therefore, of a postponement to 2023, despite Cory Barlog has repeatedly reassured the players.
Even David Jaffe fear the postponement of God of War Ragnarok to 2023 but it must be said that the father of the first God of War he’s no stranger to strong statements on Cory Barlog as well and about the work of Sony Santa Monica. However, within the Californian studio there seems to be some certainty that God of War Ragnarok will be released in 2022, the latest update dates back to April when Cory Barlog stated that GOW Ragnarok is not yet ready to be shown but it is also It is true that in the last few days there is a lot of talk about a PlayStation showcase scheduled for early June and this should be the key event to present God of War Ragnarok to the public.
One thing is certain, with the game released in the fall, Sony has to start the communication and marketing campaign during the summer months, generally this type of maneuvers are carried out at least six months in advance of the market debut. It’s hard to really get out of balance, summer events are the testing ground to understand when God of War Ragnarok will be released, do you think when we will actually see the game? Will Kratos be able to meet the appointment with 2022 or not?
