The internet is abuzz this morning with rumours of God of War Ragnarok being delayed to 2023. Last night, sources at GameReactor claimed that Sony is delaying the game to release in early 2023. According to the report, while Sony has yet to announce the game’s delay, all signs point to an early 2023 release according to the game’s current development cycle. However, after this rumour hit the internet, it was quickly shut down by Jason Schreier.
In a comment on ResetEra, Schreier responded to the ongoing rumour mill saying that two of his sources close to the project are not aware of the game’s delay.
Schreier says that the God of War Ragnarok delay is “hard to prove” which is a lot more believable than GameReactor’s “several European sources” which they cite in their report. In a comment, Schreier says:
It’s hard to definitely prove a negative but Someone Who Would Know Firsthand just told me they haven’t heard anything about a slip to 2023, as did Someone Else Who Might Know Secondhand.
Of course, the rumours have arrived right after the latest State of Play stream where God of War Ragnarok didn’t appear. Many believed that Sony would host some sort of gameplay showcase or update regarding God of War Ragnarok but the game was missing in action.
This perhaps has led many to believe that the game won’t make its initial 2022 release window but right now, it seems quite dramatic. Last week, we reported that the game’s release date leaked through official merchandise set to launch on 30 September. This is not the first time we have heard about the game’s September release so right now, until Sony delays the game, expect to play it in September.
