Developer insists that God of War: Ragnarok is coming out this year

Santa Monica Studio still hasn't given God of War: Ragnarok a specific release date, but one of the developers working on the game confirms that it hasn't been delayed to 2023.


Sony hasn't released much info about God of War: Ragnarok after dropping new footage last year. The last time that this kind of lull period happened to a PlayStation exclusive, Guerilla Studios delayed Horizon Forbidden West to 2022. Although the game ultimately pulled in excellent reviews from critics and sold well with audiences, fans can't help but wonder if Santa Monica Studio will push back Kratos' next Norse romp to 2023.

Despite multiple confirmations from official sources, fans remain skeptical that God of War: Ragnarok will be out before the year ends.

The good news here is that one developer working on the game insists that Ragnarok is still on track to come out this year.

When asked by fans on Twitter to reassure them that the studio hasn't delayed Ragnarok, Animation Director, Bruno Velazquez, replied by saying that the game is coming this year. The reply comes just after the game's producer, Cory Balrog, reaffirmed that the studio is hard at work on Ragnarok but isn't quite ready to show off the game in its current state just yet.

Ragnarok was originally scheduled to come out in 2021.

If it's any consolation, Nvidia and Sony appear to be working on something to help tide fans over in the meantime. The official Nvidia GeForce Now Twitter account recently posted a photo with a silhouette that obviously belongs to Kratos. This implies that 2018's God of War is coming to the video game streaming subscription service, a fact that was leaked last year.

With no official confirmation from Santa Monica Studio and Sony, fans are at the mercy of the slow-turning hands of time.

Speaking of Ragnarok, most fans believe that the highly anticipated sequel is Sony's only big game left on the docket for this year. However, one developer just revealed that Sony is sitting on "bangers" that might be released if not announced this year.
