Ragnarok’ is still coming out this year, according to the animation director
God of War: Ragnarok is still releasing this year, according to a statement from one of the developers following fan concerns.
That’s according to Santa Monica Studio Animation Director Bruno Velazquez, who responded to a tweet from a fan asking him to confirm if the game is still on schedule (April 20).
Fans feared the game wouldn’t be ready by the end of this year following a dev update released on the fourth anniversary of the game’s release. God of the war (2018).
In the clip released on April 20, creative director Cory Barlog wished fans a “happy 4/20” before saying, “God of War: Ragnarok, The elephant in the room. We haven’t talked about that much. It’s because everyone is head down, hard at work. We are perfectionists. Everyone tightens the graphics at level three.
Ragnorok is coming this year.

Barlog continued, “There’s so much going on right now that I just wish we could share it with you, but it’s just not ready to show. But I guarantee you… the second we have something to share, we’ll share it with you… So please hold on tight.
God of War: Ragnarok has been in limbo since its announcement, so it’s understandable that fans are concerned that the lack of footage to date is a sign that the game will need to be delayed.
Back in February Bloomberg journalist Jason Schreier also said God of War: Ragnarok will not be carried over to next year. It is of course possible that the release date will be pushed back at the last minute since the development process is incredibly smooth.
At the time of the latest postponement, Herman Hulst, head of global studios at Sony Interactive Entertainment, said the production of God of War: Ragnarok “started a bit later” which contributed to the delay.
God of War: Ragnarok is due out on PS4 and PS5 later this year. You can stay up to date with the latest updates at NMEit is God of War: Ragnarok central page.
