God of War Ragnarök: Creative Director comments on the release date

God of War Ragnarök: Creative Director comments on the release date

God of War Ragnarök

When Sony announced the next game in the God of War series in September 2020, the short video read "2021". But it is becoming increasingly unlikely that we will be able to play the action game this year.

God of War is probably still taking some time

At the last State of Play a few days ago, was God of War, which some believe the subtitle is Ragnarök, is not mentioned. A game that is due to appear in 2021 and of which there was not even gameplay to be seen, should be shown soon. Therefore, fans suspected that the release will not take place this year. Industry insider and games journalist Jason Schreier also said that he did not believe that the new God of War would appear in 2021.

Cory Barlog, the game's creative director, has now commented. While he does not explicitly mention God of War, it is clear that he is referring to this game. On Twitter he just said "WHEN. IT'S. DONE." What he wants to say is that "God of War: Ragnarök" will appear when it is finished. According to Corey Barlog, the fans here should trust him because that would just be the best for everyone. He's not wrong about that. Developers should take the time to really get a game in good shape and condition. At Cyberpunk 2077 we saw what happens when that isn't the case.

So it is rather unlikely that we will get the new God of War this year.

'God Of War: Ragnarok' 2021 Release Date Unlikely, Says Renowned Industry Journalist

  • The first teaser of 'God of War: Ragnarok' was released in September last year
  • The company seems to be leaving it out of its plans for the year
  • Sony is yet to issue any formal communication regarding the release of 'God of War: Ragnarok'
  • Although the first teaser of 'God of War: Ragnarok' was shown on PlayStation 5 Showcase Stream in September last year, the gameplay footage has not been released yet. The teaser ended with the text, “Ragnarok is Coming” fading in and was shortly followed by “2021,” which many believe is the tentative launch date. 

    However, Jason Schreier, a renowned gaming industry veteran, thinks a delay is likely as the company seems to be leaving it out of its plans for the year. He was replying to a tweet posted by @Nibellion, who is recognized by most gamers as one of the top sources when it comes to breaking video game-related information or leaks on social media.

    Nibel cited GQ’s recent interview with Sony Interactive Entertainment president and CEO Jim Ryan wherein the latter had left out “God of War: Ragnarok” from the company’s 2021 roadmap. Instead, the PlayStation boss enumerated several others in the offing for the PS5. 

    “Sidenote: in the Jim Ryan interviews today, he kept mentioning ‘Horizon 2: Forbidden West’ as a title for the second half of the year. No mention of the ‘God Of War’ sequel, fwiw,' he tweeted.

    This apparently caught the eye of former Kotaku full-time journalist Schreier, who then shared his opinion on the matter. @Schreier answered: “I've got a nice shiny bridge to sell anyone who thinks 'God of War' is coming out this year.”

    What’s interesting about this is the fact that in the magazine interview, Ryan was asked about another hotly anticipated exclusive -- Gran Turismo 7 -- for the PS5. A PR representative purportedly took over the call and explained that “Covid-related production challenges” have pushed “Gran Turismo 7” back from 2021 to 2022.

    As for “God of War: Ragnarok,” Sony is yet to issue any formal communication regarding how release dates were affected by the pandemic.

    While many still think that the impending PlayStation State of Play presentation might offer clues about the development status of certain games, Cory Barlog, the creative director behind the 2018 “God of War” and “God of War: Ragnarok,” has denied anything related to the franchise in the show, through a recent tweet. god of war
