Update 6/10/22 7:37 a.m. PT: A new report from Bloomberg's Jason Schreier states that God of War: Ragnarok has not been delayed to 2023 and is currently still on track to be released this year and is targeting a November launch. The report also states that a date isn't set in stone, and that the game could end up getting pushed to 2023 after all. The rest of the article remains as originally published
God of War Ragnarok will reportedly be delayed until 2023, pushing the sequel to 2018’s smash hit, God of War, significantly back from its original release window of 2021.
According to a report from Gamereactor, several European sources confirmed that God of War Ragnarok will be pushed back to 2023 by Santa Monica Studio. This news doesn’t come as a surprise for several reasons, not the least of which is that many games have been pushed back as developers struggle to catch up from pandemic delays. It’s also worth noting that Sony didn’t mention Ragnarok at all during it’s recent State of Play, which would have been a great place to bring up a title as highly anticipated as the next God of War.
Santa Monica Studio has yet to confirm the news, so it should be taken with a grain of salt until you hear directly from Sony on the matter. It’s not looking good, however, as quite a few folks are already skeptical that Ragnarok could make the 2022 release window. Of course, this just gives you more time to revisit 2018’s God of War or visit it for the first time if you haven’t checked it out already. Shacknews’ own Ozzie Mejia gave the game a high score in his God of War review.
We’ll be sure to update this story if and when Sony confirms the news, but for now you should head over to our 2022 video game release date calendar to see what is coming out this year that you can plan to play.

I just listened to an interview with the guy who voices Thor. He said they recruited him to the role by coming to his house and explaining the game's story to him. He described it as a "rich tapestry" and said they were there for five hours.
