Announced in September 2020 with a teaser in a showcase where Sony Playstation unveiled its new console and its catalog of upcoming games, the sequel to its extraordinary game “God of War” has just been postponed to 2022.
“One more thing …” It is by this little formula that Jim Ryan, the boss of Playstation, had closed in September 2020 the showcase of the publisher, which revealed at that time the release date of his PS5 console and a foretaste of the catalog of the next games that would feed the console.
The publisher concluded by selling dreams, with the announcement of the next part of his daunting saga God of war, about which we told you moreover here all the good that we thought of the extraordinary last opus, reboot orchestrated with mastery by the Game Director Cory Barlog. This God of War Ragnarök, whose title is unofficial, was then announced for 2021.

In interview published on the official Playstation blog, Hermen Hulst, director of PlayStation Studios, specifies that the next God of War opus will also be released on PS4. Considering the size of the fleet of PS4 consoles, it would indeed be crazy to only reserve the new (mis) Scandinavian adventures of Kratos for owners of the new Sony console.
