As part of a new Q&A post on the PlayStation Blog, head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst has confirmed God of War Ragnarok will now launch for PS5 in 2022. It's a delay we all assumed was going to happen, but now it's set in stone. When discussing release dates during these uncertain times, Hulst said: "And for God of War, the project started a little later. So we’ve made the decision to push that game out to next year, to ensure that Santa Monica Studio can deliver the amazing God of War game that we all want to play."
Santa Monica Studio then expanded on the news over on Twitter, writing: "We remain focused on delivering a top-quality game while maintaining the safety and wellbeing of our team, creative partners, and families. With this in mind, we've made the decision to shift our release window to 2022."
Back on the PlayStation Blog and Hermen Hulst said: "With these things, something’s gotta give. It cannot be the quality of our titles, and it surely won’t be the health or the wellbeing of our amazing team." It is also stated that Horizon Forbidden West is "on track to release this holiday season", but that's not quite certain right now.
