Last September, actor Christopher Judge revealed on Twitter that if God of War Ragnarök had been so rejected, it was above all because of him, after a major surgery where he had his two hips replaced, operated from the back but also from the knee. Awaiting his speedy recovery and the end of his rehabilitation, the Santa Monica Studios team had never communicated on the reasons for the postponement of the game, out of respect for Judge, who praised such discretion. If Sony Interactive Entertainment has confirmed a release for 2022, the date remains quite unclear for the moment. Some people were talking about the month of April, just to stick to the release period of the first GOD OF WAR on PS4, but only 4 months after its release, and no promotional campaign really launched (press invited to play the game, trailers drums beating), at Jeuxactu, we can't believe it.
On the other hand, for a few hours, rumors around the date of September 30, 2022 have been circulating, especially since the PlayStation database revealed this date. Leak or placeholder? There is still room for doubt, but given that September 30, 2022 falls on a Friday, which is a usual day for releases of PlayStation games and other blockbusters, everything suggests that the data collected seems plausible. Still, this will allow developers to continue to finish and refine the game for several more months. If it comes out well next September, it will be 4 years of development between the first God of War PS4 and its sequel, which will be available on PS5 and PS4.
