God of War: Ragnarok Delayed to 2023?
Sony’s latest State of Play mainly focused on the third-party content and its first PS VR2 games, the Summer Game Fest or a separate event might be when Sony makes the news official. Recent rumours linking The Last of Us Remake to September may also reserve a spot for Joel and Ellie in forthcoming showcases, but Ragnarok’s postponement would space them out in the calendar.
The game was first announced at the PS5 launch event, with a 2021 window which caught most people by surprise. The game is one of the biggest exclusives for Sony Interactive Entertainment and it is only normal for them to take their time with its release. Santa Monica Studios have also proved able to deliver a revolutionary game as seen with the 2018 God of War.
