PlayStation Studios Santa Monica (or Sony Interactive Entertainment Santa Monica Studio…? seriously, what is up with their naming conventions) originally scheduled it for a different day, but not for the reason we initially thought!
So God of War: Ragnarok will not be released on a Friday. We point it out because AAA games tend to launch on a Tuesday or Friday, and so did the previous adventure of Kratos and Atreus (God of War was released on Friday, April 20, 2018, for PlayStation 4). Still, this time, it may seem unusual that the continuation of the franchise’s storyline, which has moved into Norse mythology, has now been scheduled for a Wednesday.
Yes, but a last-minute decision resulted in the now-finalised release date. Sony uploaded a trailer, and at the end of it, the release date was November 11, a Friday! The same day that Todd Howard and Bethesda Game Studios were due to release Starfield before Microsoft pushed it back to the first half of 2023, but the change in release date has nothing to do with one of the essential Xbox-exclusive titles ever!
One logical theory is that the release date was changed to November 9 because Wednesday is named after Odin, and there are nine realms in Norse mythology. The original announcement date with the announcement of the collector’s editions that sold out in no time and were then dumped on eBay by the scalpers was set for June 30. However, it was most likely changed to the sixth of July purely for logistical reasons. It is the view of Jason Schreier of Bloomberg, who wrote it on the ResetEra forum.
So it would have been possible to release two significant games on the same day, but Microsoft gave Howard more time to get Starfield to the stores without their typical bug pile, but Sony brought the launch of God of War: Ragnarok two days FORWARD. Kratos and Atreus return on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on November 9.
