It’s four years to the day that the God of War franchise saw the launch of its soft reboot, taking it to completely new heights in terms of critical and commercial success. Given how well-received the 2018 title was, it’s no surprise that the wait for its sequel, God of War Ragnarok, has felt quite long. With the game expected to launch sometime in 2022, fans have been hoping that Sony will have new updates on the game to share soon- but it seems we’re not quite there yet.
Celebrating God of War (2018)’s fourth anniversary, developer SIE Santa Monica Studio recently shared a message from the game’s creative director Cory Barlog on Twitter. After thanking fans for their support on the previous game, Barlog spoke briefly about its sequel, saying that while development is moving full steam ahead, the team isn’t yet ready to show anything new.
“We haven’t said a lot about this,” Barlog said. “That’s because everybody is heads down and hard at work. We are perfectionists.”
“There is so much going on right now that I just wish that I could share it with you, but it’s just not ready to be shown,” he added. “But I guarantee you, the moment, the very second that we have something that we’re ready to share, we’re going to share it. Because we don’t want to hold any of this back. So please hold tight, know that something cool is coming, and that we, everybody here at Santa Monica, are so incredibly thankful for all the support that you’ve given us.”
Whenever it launches, God of War Ragnarok will be available on PS5 and PS4.
4 years ago, God of War (2018) released! We’re grateful to all of you who joined Kratos and Atreus on their journey, and we’re so proud of the team who worked to bring it to life.
