2018's God of War was a fantastic reboot of the over-the-top and grandiose action-adventure series starring the fallen demi-god Kratos, and developer Sony Santa Monica Studios plans to release the follow-up sometime in 2022. Revealed during Sony's June PS5 reveal event, the next game will see the return of Kratos and Atreus as they explore more of the ancient Norse realms and encounter more powerful gods looking for retribution. Even more information about God of War: Ragnarok--and a new trailer--was released during the September PlayStation Showcase event. Here's everything we know about the upcoming God of War sequel so far.
Release Date: Is God Of War Ragnarok Coming In 2021?
The next God of War game is poised to be one of the PS5's biggest upcoming games. However, with the shifting changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for more development time, the sequel was recently delayed to 2022. Sony Santa Monica Studios explained the delay vita Twitter, asserting its need to "remain focused on delivering a top-quality game while maintaining the safety and wellbeing of our team, creative partners, and families." During the PlayStation Showcase in September, Sony announced that Ragnarok will be released at some point in 2022 for PlayStation 5 and PS4 (more on that next).
