Despite attaching a big fat ‘2021’ to the end of God of War Ragnarok’s teaser trailer, we don’t think anyone in the industry realistically expects it to release this year. However, there’s always a contingent of outspoken fans who whip themselves into a frenzy ahead of gaming events like State of Play, expecting updates on titles clearly still in the faraway future. Writing on Twitter, director Cory Barlog had a message for those people:
“I don’t know who needs to hear this,” he wrote, “but when it’s done.” He added in parentheses: “Trust that it’s what’s best for everyone.” While Barlog didn’t explicitly mention the next God of War game in his message, it’s fairly obvious what he’s referring to. Patience, boy.
