Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West are just a couple of the big-name games that have graced the PlayStation this year. However, God of War Ragnarok, which is set to release later this year, is perhaps its most significantly exclusive. It’s possible that fans wanting to get a look at the highly anticipated sequel this month will be a little disappointed.
An unofficial tweet regarding a State of Play for the sequel on May 27th was met with the response, “Too soon, last I checked,” according to verified source Ashhong on Resetera. This is consistent with what creative director Cory Balrog stated earlier this month, namely that it was “simply not ready to be exhibited.” However, God of War Ragnarok animation director Bruno Velazquez recently reassured fans that the game will still be released this year as originally planned.
According to Cory Barlog, the question would be quite in line with his recent video intervention, in which he celebrated the anniversary of God of War but also argued that it was not yet the right time for a more detailed presentation of God of War Ragnarok, a game that will have to wait for a while but will be well worth the wait, according to the creator.
According to various sources, the new game for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 will be released sometime in the second half of 2022, which means that a presentation with a possible State of Play dedicated will need to take place over the next few months, but it is possible that it will not take place in May and may not take place at all in June, depending on when we find out more information.
Additionally, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier stated in a Reddit thread in February that the game will not be postponed until 2023. Currently under production for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, keep an eye out for official release date announcements — and maybe some additional gameplay footage – in the coming months.
