God of War: Ragnarok had not been delayed to 2023, despite some rumours suggesting otherwise, several industry insiders claim.
One of the most anticipated games of 2022 is SIE Santa Monica's action-adventure God of War: Ragnarok, which was initially scheduled to release last year but got delayed to 2022 since the dev team needs more time for polishing and bug fixing.
God of War: Ragnarok still does not have a release date to this day but it is expected to launch in 2022. However, that date is not set in stone as some reports have emerged this week, suggesting that the game has been internally pushed to early 2023.
The rumour comes from Gamereactor Spain , who cite "various European sources".
Since that report was published, several industry insiders have claimed that the rumour about the God of War: Ragnarok delay might not be true. Bloomberg's Jason Schreier states on ResetEra that "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."
Former God of War Director, David Scott Jaffe also claims that his source at Sony is still adamant that God of War: Ragnarok is a lock for 2022 release.
"My source at Sony says GOW still a lock on 2022. I 100% trust they believe that; I don't 100% know for sure if the majority of team (dev and otherwise) has all the data. But they probably do," Jaffe tweeted.
Sony are expected to host a God of War: Ragnarok focused the State of Play soon where they should be finally revealing the release date and other details.
