Sony Santa Monica developer offes yet another confirmation that God of War Ragnarok will release in 2022.
Can't wait. Sony has been delivering games this year
They've been delivering games right out the gate. The media hates playstation but we love you.
"I'm glad I hit a nerve" You made me laugh, so I guess we both happy. XD
They like you 🤣
I'll honestly pass on this one. The last one was boring to me.
I'm guessing a late November release in time for the holiday season.
Sony usually avoids holiday releases. I’m thinking September.
More like December it’s not Sony’s call it’s the king time the devs take so … and delays is still on the table if it’s not ready. My guess is Q2 2023
Not Sonys call?
They said the same thing about HFW and delayed it a few months later. No employee is going to break rank and announce a delay on Twitter ahead of corporate. I’ll wait and see - hopefully we’ll see a SoP dedicated to GoW shortly.
It would be nice to see Ragnarok come out this year. A lot of people have been waiting for it. Sony has a history of pushing their holiday releases back, but Ragnarok was already delayed out of 2021. I'm not sure Sony would push it back again.
I hope GOW comes out very soon just to silence the delay "concern". @porkChop Do Sony have a history of pushing holiday games back? Damn, that's news to me. I know they have a history of not dumping everything they have during the holidays, and leaving us with nothing for the rest of the year.
Yeah they often delay their holiday releases into the spring. I don't necessarily think there's anything wrong with that though.
Actually historically Sony doesn't release in holiday. The reason for that is because most of the big budget AAA multiplatform games release during holiday and, being the platform holder, they make 30% of all third party sales. So to them it doesn't make sense to have a first party sales canabilize a third party sale and/or vise versa. They rather get the third party sale revenue and then get the first party revenue when there is nothing major in the way. They can't get it right all the time however and thats why we had Horizon release the same month as Elden RIng.
No. "Immediately, one fact leaps out: Microsoft has a longer average interval to release than Sony, not shorter" https://www.neogaf.com/thre...
GOW never released around the holidays to begin with, it was always apart of Sony spring releases April or May always.
I would say its pretty damn common for Sony to push releases to January-February… not sure how that is new to you. I mean, the biggest release from Sony this year was a delay from an original target of late 2021 haha
@Z501 The time from announcement to release is an entirely different topic though. If you announce a game with no release date and then launch it 4 years later, it was never delayed. I was talking specifically about games with an announced holiday release date being delayed until the following year, it's very common. @Onilink Exactly. I don't know why everyone is acting like this is some crazy claim. Zero Dawn was delayed from holiday 2016 to February 2017. Forbidden West was delayed from holiday 2021. Ragnarok was delayed from holiday 2021. Days Gone was delayed multiple times, including from holiday 2018. It happens. It's not a big deal.
Glad to hear it but I can wait, the 1st one was a masterpiece so If the game needs a delay so be it, and if they can release it this year then the better.
I don't really know if any rushed PlayStation games releasing before they're finished.
I am itching to play this game feel like a kid again waiting for Xmas waiting for a release date on this game.
I was dead certain this would be 2023, so I'm so happy that this is getting released this year. Thought that Elden Ring was a dead cert for GOTY, not so much now!
It still will. They will push the It's DLC agenda. The game will be top shelf but suffer for the fact GOW 2018 exists.
The only thing that could challenge ER for GOTY this year would have been the gaming media's fondness for Nintendo titles, now that Zelda has been delayed to 2023, nothing will stop it, Ragnarok is very unlikely to reach those high 90s on meta and ER being multiplat will be a big help for it too.
After what barlog told... It didn't make any sense the talk of being delayed.... And anyone trying to downplay a gow game because of being crossgen... Gow from 2018 is better that anything of that genre on the market...
It's coming but most of us have nothing to play it on unless it's cross gen.
It is cross gen though. I can also understand people waiting to play this on PS5
Well coming up on two years out and we still don't have a proper next-gen title on either machine. Elder Ring is the best game for most not all gamers so far and its graphically challenged. Horizon West, much better graphically, is also a good game but compared to the PS4 version, not a real next gen game. Now God of War will also be on both so we know its not a real next-gen title either. Yes, it was a mistake for me personally to buy either of these console now. Others feel differently which is fine but I should have waited. By time they come out with a true next-gen only title that's worth it, they will be asking me to buy the PS5 Pro. I was actually hoping for a bit more than faster load times, a bump in resolution and frame rate for my $500 bucks. Its no longer that games that are unrealistic.......
