Another rumour has emerged about the continuation of the story of Kratos and Atreus.
So far, we’ve heard that God of War: Ragnarok for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 might hit stores and the PlayStation Store in September, as merchandise (T-shirts, headgear, etc.) for the game surfaced… However, you’d better hold off on that release window because a very reliable site and its author have told us that the sequel to God of War, which was released in 2018 for PlayStation 4 and then recently for PC, will arrive a little later…
According to Jason Schreier, writing for Bloomberg, “God of War Ragnarok, the latest entry in the long-running series and a direct sequel to 2018’s God of War, was announced in 2020 for PlayStation consoles. Sony has delayed the game several times since then, publicly and internally, as its developers deal with the pandemic and other production challenges. It was planned for September this year, but it was recently bumped to November.” This release window also showed up in the PlayStation Database.
Supposedly, an announcement will be made later this month about when the game will be released. Then we might finally get a deep-dive gameplay demo of the new God of War because Sony is still behind on that, so Kratos and his son are lagging in that respect, and we don’t see why they can’t be a bit more transparent about it. Maybe the PlayStation 4 port is giving issues for Sony Interactive Entertainment (PlayStation Studios?) Santa Monica…?
Here’s the official description of the game, which will delve into the Nordid end of the world: “From Santa Monica Studio comes the sequel to the critically acclaimed God of War (2018). Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as they prepare for the prophesied battle that will end the world. Together, Kratos and Atreus venture deep into the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for war. Along the way, they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, gather allies from across the realms and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters. As the threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer, Kratos and Atreus find themselves choosing between the safety of their family and the safety of the realms…”
