It has been a while since Sony provided any sort of update regarding God of War Ragnarok. The last time we saw the game was last year during the PlayStation Showcase event in September. Even though it looked pretty cool at the time and Sony confirmed it was delayed to 2022, the company hasn’t been open about the development progress. Until now that is.
To celebrate the fourth anniversary of God of War 2018, game director Cory Barlog posted a heartfelt video message on Twitter. In the video, Barlog says that out of everything, he is most thankful to all the fans that have made the success of the 2018 release so wonderful.
Barlog says that Sony Santa Monica Studios is hard at work with the upcoming sequel.
We haven’t said a lot about this. That’s because everyone is heads-down hard at work. We are perfectionists. Everyone is tidying up the groundwork on level 3. There is so much going on right now I just wish we could share it with you but it is just not ready to be shown. I guarantee you the moment, the very second that we have something ready to share, we will share. Because we don’t want to hold any of this back. So please, hold tight and know that something cool is coming and that we, everyone at Santa Monica are so incredibly thankful for all of the support you have given.
While this wasn’t the update we were hoping for, at least it is something. God of War Ragnarok was originally planned to release last year in 2021. However, Sony officially delayed the game pushing it to this year.
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.

It is already April and we don’t know when the game is going to land. Barlog didn’t confirm a 2022 release date but there’s a very slim chance that the game will be delayed into next year.
