Sony Interactive Entertainment and Santa Monica Studio are setting up God Of War Ragnarok for a release sometime in 2022. There was a recent leak on Twitter where placement graphics, like the one you see below, were posted to the PlayStation database, suggesting the game was targeting September 30th, 2022. The date spoke so quickly around that many people took it as absolute confirmation that this would be the official date and that they should write down their plans to get a PS5 to play before the end of summer. However, some new news has come to light that is making people wonder if this is really the correct date.

Another leak occurred shortly after the first one, which you can see in the following Twitter post. It shows a cut piece of art from a website that categorized the game’s rating in Saudi Arabia as an “M”. Most of the time, unless a game is very controversial, people don’t really read much into the rating system around the world as each country has its own way of rating different games depending on the region and what each area is for considers a certain age to be appropriate. However, what caught a lot of people’s attention is the fact that we’re seeing a game rating for a September title in the middle of winter. Typically, reviews aren’t posted until a game is about to be released so retailers and other businesses can plan for it. To get a review so quickly the rumor mill has now started that the game will be out much earlier than expected.
Could we see God Of War Ragnarok in the next few months? While that would be great, it also feels rushed, especially considering that people are still struggling to get the PS4, the exact console it’s supposed to be exclusive to. That means that YOU may take some of the game’s sales prematurely based on the fact that it doesn’t have a smart base of owners. Honestly, the fall sounds like the better plan as they try to bring more units to the North American and European markets. But hey, this is all just speculation of possible leaks. As far as we know, the game won’t see the light of day until November 2022 over the holidays, or be postponed for whatever reason.
