God of War Ragnarok is on the way and fans of this epic action-adventure series are eager to experience the next chapter of Kratos’ adventures, with his now-teen son Atreus, in Midgard. However, this experience might be coming to PS5 a little later than first thought. Players waiting to play the sequel to Santa Monica Studios’ God of War might have to wait to find out what happens next because one insider claims that the internal release date for God of War Ragnarok has been delayed by over three months.
Santa Monica Studios’ hasn’t officially confirmed when the God of War Ragnarok release date is but, recently, the PS5 wishlist feature has hinted at a God of War Ragnarok release date that’s a lot sooner than we expected: September 30, 2022.
This late-Summer release date was promising, but PlayStation Game Size (a data miner that shares release dates and update details from PlayStation’s databases) has revealed that the internal release date for this action-adventure game has been pushed back over three months to December 31, 2022.
Now, you might think it unlikely that God of War Ragnarok is going to come out on New Year’s Eve (and you’d be right, that would be quite unlikely), but it’s not impossible. However, the most popular theory online is that this is another temporary placeholder release date that has been introduced prior to an announcement.
🚨 God of War Ragnarök Release Date Changed From September 30 To December 31 (Place-Holder)
🟦 Q4 🤔

An announcement that could arrive as early as tomorrow. Summer Game Fest begins with a showcase hosted by Geoff Keighley on June 8. While we don’t know everything that’s going to appear, Keighley has revealed that it will focus on previously-announced titles – of which God of War Ragnarok is one.
However, take this suggestion with a pinch of salt – it’s hard to predict when specific announcements will pop up and Sony may want to hold-off for their own State of Play presentation or PlayStation Showcase later in the year. Only time will tell, but fear not – it’s unlikely that God of War Ragnarok will be launching on the last day of the year.
