Before the alleged delay, Sony and Santa Monica Studio were scheduled to announce the God of War Ragnarok release date on June 30.
Although there was never an official explanation, many assumed it had something to do with the recent, contentious Roe v. Wade decision by the Supreme Court.
The alleged delay in the announcement makes it understandable that many people were outraged, but the kind of abuse Santa Monica Studio saw as a consequence is unacceptable.
Indeed, Cory Barlog promised that fans would get this information as soon as Sony and Santa Monica were prepared, and it seems that they were. Today, a brand-new 30-second cinematic for God of War Ragnarok was released.
There is some conversation between Atreus and Kratos, and Fenrir is revealed. It would be intriguing to watch how things turn out since Fenrir, a character from Norse mythology, is a child of Loki. The release date is, however, also included in this little film.
For PS4 and PS5, God of War Ragnarok debuts on November 9. It’s undoubtedly one of the year’s most anticipated games, and many people already consider it a candidate for Game of the Year.
Of course, it remains to be seen, but it will need to be a fantastic game to compete with Elden Ring, another well-known GOTY. Of course, there are still many unknowns, but at least fans now have a date for Ragnarok’s release.
Fenrir’s appearance here is a tantalizing tease for the franchise. Atreus’ true name could be Loki, as many viewers of the God of War conclusion have noted.
The World Serpent and Fenrir are related to Loki in mythology, which is why the World Serpent is presented in the game as being set back in time during Ragnarok.
It’s thrilling and encouraging for the game that Kratos and Atreus will eventually battle the enormous wolf in this cinematic.
Otherwise, God of War Ragnarok fans may anticipate additional details in the run-up to release.
According to rumors, a PlayStation Showcase will occur as usual in September, and it will probably be its following significant announcement. However, anything occurring earlier would also not be unexpected.
