Sony Interactive Entertainment ha confirmed what was already an open secret for months. God of War: RagnarokAs the sequel to the 2018 game is unofficially known, it won’t arrive this year. While Sony had anticipated its launch throughout 2021, today they updated the community to inform them that We can enjoy it until 2022. At the moment, yes, we do not know the exact date.
Additionally, Hermen Hulst, head of PlayStation Studios, announced that God of War: Ragnarok
Hulst himself points out that the development of God of War: RagnaroWhat started after that of Horizon Forbidden West. The reason for the delay, unsurprisingly, is related to the project schedule. Santa Mónica Studio needs more time to finalize its work
Hulst mentions that the creative team behind God of War: Ragnarok could not compromise its health and well-being to deliver the video game in 2021. It is clear that Sony is trying avoid at all costs a controversy over crunch, since these negative situations tend to damage the image of companies. Fortunately, it seems that the industry is slowly beginning to pay more attention to the care of its employees to avoid labor overexploitation.
Although Sony does not mention it, perhaps because it is a well-worn “justification” in the industry, the pandemic is likely to have affected the development schedule of God of War: Ragnarok. Sony’s internal studios had to adapt to remote work, and the pace of progress is certainly not the same as face-to-face work. At least, of course, during the first months of adaptation. Let us not doubt that other projects will also be postponed in the following months.
