In this way, all the drama ended. PlayStation just announced that God of War Ragnarok will already hit the promised 2022 release window, coming out in the very traditional “big game” slot in early November. especially, November 9, 2022.
The newsletter It also comes with a new ‘CG’ trailer for a game called ‘Father and Son’ which is only 30 seconds long, but I suppose they wanted to release Something Next to this news:
In it, we can hear the voice of an older Atreus, who is no longer a child, and more of a teenager, it seems. Father and son fight enemies and end up facing a giant wolf, which I suppose is Fenrir from Norse mythology. Fenrir was the son of Loki and Angerboda, which is uh curious, given that Atreus he is Loki, we know Angerboda is introduced in this game, and it seems to be related to the age of Atreus… Who knows what weird twists we’ll get in traditional mythology with this sequel.
God of War Ragnarok’s release date turned into a little controversy after nothing had been said or revealed about the game since September 2021, and everyone thought we might be heading for a delay. A recent leak said that Sony had been planning to reveal the date about a week ago, but that didn’t happen, and Sony Santa Monica’s Cory Balrog wrote on Twitter that if it was up to him, he’d share more, implying that Sony wanted to wait until some reason. . This escalated into actual harassment of Santa Monica developers during the release date, including a woman who said she sent pictures of the penis as part of a harassment campaign to extract a date, causing the studio to issue a statement penalizing the most frantic parts of the fan base:
Exactly why it all escalated to this point is unclear, but the very simple version of the story is…Sony was going to reveal the date last week, and they decided to wait a week for some reason. That’s pretty much it, it seems, and unlike Xbox’s Starfield, which has been pushed back to 2023, PlayStation is already going to have a big holiday this year, and it looks as though Elden Ring might have a 2022 GOTY competition after all.
Again, there’s still a lot about Ragnarok that we don’t know, and we you did not I’ve seen all this much of the game, at this point. But honestly, I’m fine with them because they haven’t really done much yet what we already know. It doesn’t seem like it needs anything else to sell itself at this point, as if you’ve played the first game (as millions have), you’ll undoubtedly want to play the second too.
We’ll see if Sony makes a bigger demo of the game later, or if we leave the rest a mystery. Now we have the history, and that was the only major question left.
