From PlayStation Universe: "Could we be Loki enough to see Kratos return on a Thor's Day in March? It's starting to look increasingly likely that a timely release date is on the cards."
MARCH 22nd !
Been the most likely date all along. Release the reboot on the same day the original released, why not?
Besides, Thursday is Thor.
March seems like the most likely time to release this
I just found out Thursday was named after Thor
Now you know.
Hmmm, now I know lol
Wednesday is Odin’s day (not Odin but one of his many other names, Wotan maybe) and Friday is Frigg’s day. There is another one named after a god but I forget it. I don’t think this has anything to do with the release date but it is a fun fact.
In Norway wednesday is Onsdag (Short for Odins day perhaps). Torsdag (Obviously thor). These are some kind of remnants of our viking past when we still use some form of their words for things although modern norwegian doesnt sound too much like old norse. icelandic is probably closer to the old norse language though, but I dont know for sure. maybe some icelandic people on here can shed some light on this.
@RevXM That’s probably it, Wednesday is just English lol. I went back to the book where I read that because I was irritated trying to remember. “In English, the gods have left their names in our days of the week. You can find Tyr (Odin’s son), Odin, Thor, and Frigg, the queen of the gods, in, respectively, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.” I’m pretty sure Sunday and Monday are also Norse. Saturday is the only one that isn’t I believe.
Thursday would be an extremely odd day. Games are generally released on Tuesdays or Fridays are starting to become a big day for releases.
You know Thursday is Thor, right ? It’s base on Norse God.
while that is true... 1) as other's have said: thursday -> thor's day, makes perfect sense for their marketing. 2) the original GoW also released on march 22nd (with almost all GoW games releasing in march anyway) so releasing this on the anniversary of the first GoW also makes sense.
Yeah terrible pun, got it not worth a pat on the back.
^Phantom, it's not a pun; Thursday literally means 'Thor's day' in old English. I'm certainly not claiming I knew that before now either, but this is why it makes a nice fit - the marketing just rolls off the back of this fact.
Come on Sony Announce it already... Stop playing with my emotions :D .. Once i see its up on PSN for preorder , i will instantly Preorder it... How many will do so???
It's already available for pre order on US PSN. There's no date, but I think we all agree it's a lock for March. I'm waiting to see if there will be an edition with a statue. I'd love to have Kratos sitting next to Aloy and my Clicker bust.
Mmm... Clicker bust 🤤😏
Oh ,poor Yakuza 6, Ni No Kuni II , wallet :(
Just announce it already !! last night for no reason i dreamed playing GOW4 it was awesome and now i want it even more.
Oh no the puns cometh
I say March 20th instead of the 22nd but ONLY because it's a Tuesday.
Amazon has a date of June 30. Is that the official?
Placeholder date. I have a feeling this game will be delayed. It is already two weeks into Jan 2018, and a Spring or the rumored March 22 release date seems unlikely at this point. But I hope I'm wrong as this is one of the only few games I'm looking forward to play on my OG PS4 this year.
This is gonna be one Hel of a game. Also, has Kratos gotten Balder? I can't tell, but this game is gonna Frigg-in Rok. Sorry, I Loki love puns.
So goty will probably release in March?
