God of War Ragnarok is one of few major blockbuster games left that had a 2022 launch window before heading into the year and still haven’t been delayed, but though we’re almost halfway through the year at this point, a concrete release date for the sequel remains elusive. A recent Gamereactor report claimed that the game had been delayed into 2023, but journalist Jason Schreier, who currently writes for Bloomberg, said not long afterward that based on what he’s heard, that isn’t the case.

He has now doubled down on that. In the ResetEra thread where he initially shared the aforementioned message, Schreier recently returned to provide another update, saying that as per another, more recent recent conversation with a Sony source, God of War Ragnarok is still targeting a 2022 launch- though of course, as Schreier himself points out, that’s not a guarantee. If there’s anything that these past couple of years have taught us, it’s that you should never bet against delays.

“Heard from another Sony source this morning that the game is not delayed,” Schreier wrote. “As usual, this is not a guarantee that the game will come out in 2022 and video game development is so turbulent that you should never trust a release date until the product in question is in your hands. But this Gamereactor report appears to be false.”

Developer SIE Santa Monica itself has stressed on multiple occasions over the last few months that God of War Ragnarok is going to launch in 2022, while other recent developments, like a classification rating in South Korea as well as retailer listings of merchandise, have indicated that a launch could be not too far away.

As for when that launch arrives, that remains to be seen. A recent update made to the game in the PlayStation Network backend might suggest that the game is targeting a Q4 2022 release, which would make sense, considering the fact that September is already occupied by The Last of Us Part 1.
