God of War: Ragnarok has a release date for sometime in November 2022 according to a Bloomberg report by Jason Schreier. In this report, Schreier cites three people familiar with the game's development at Santa Monica Studio. While this is not an official announcement by Sony or the team, it's a good indication that things are on track for a Q4 release.

Given the year that was 2020 (and then 2021), and the ongoing global pandemic, we find ourselves in a situation where God of War: Ragnarok recieved some delays. The game was originally expected to release last year in 2021, but that did not occur. The COVID-19 pandemic shook the industry, with new remote working models coming in to effect, which changed the landscape of the development process. Ragnarok, among countless other games, had their release dates affected by this. 

God of War: Ragnarok was originally announced during a PlayStation 5 Showcase. Not much was actually revealed, in fact, the teaser shows little more than some runes with a voice (presumably Kratos) telling us the time draws near and we must prepare. The teaser concludes with the phrase “Ragnarok is coming” as well as the aforementioned date: 2021.

As for what we might expect story-wise from God of War: Ragnarok, it’s all in the name. Ragnarok is a Norse mythology event involving the end of the world in the form of the death of gods, natural disasters, and the world being covered in water. But because of the actions of Kratos during 2018’s God of War, events might not happen exactly as planned. Plus, there’s the after credits sequence where a certain someone shows up to have a friendly chat with Kratos.

While not much is known about God of War: Ragnarok’s release date, aside from the fact it’s in 2022, players at least know what major events will likely take place in the game. Be sure to check back with us as we update this once a precise release date is announced.
