God of War Ragnarok is reportedly still on track for a November 2022 release, despite the release date and pre-order announcement rumored to be scheduled for the June 30 being a no-show.
According to Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, there was a release date announcement that was planned for God of War Ragnarok on Thursday, June 30, 2022, as per people familiar with the project. However, recent tweets from Cory Barlog suggested that the announcement had been delayed due to unknown reasons.
On God of War Ragnarok rumors: as of very recently, there was indeed a release date announcement planned for Thursday, June 30, per people familiar. Recent tweets from Cory Barlog suggest that is no longer happening. Still, as far as I know the game has not been delayed again.

Despite the delay in the announcement of a release date for God of War Ragnarok, Schreier said that, as far as he knew, the game itself had not been delayed. Kotaku had reported that the Twitter insider known as The Snitch had contacted them and alluded to getting their information from the same source as Bloomberg. In his follow-up tweet, Schreier clarified that this was false. However, after an exchange of DMs between him and The Snitch, it turned out that the latter had made no such claim, and their statement had been modified by the author of the Kotaku article.
Earlier today on enthusiast gaming forum Reset Era, Schreier mentioned that, as of last week, there was a release date/pre-order announcement planned for June 30, 2022. He had asked around to find out if the game was delayed, but hadn’t heard back yet. He went on to state that as far as he knows, God of War Ragnarok is still on track for a November 2022 release.
Previously, it was discovered that the internal release date for GoW Ragnarok had been changed from September 30 to December 31. As with all PSN pre-orders for games that don’t have a concrete release date, December 31 is usually set as a place-holder release date for titles that have yet to receive a release date.
According to PlayStation Game Size on Twitter, the new December 31 release date could imply a delay to the Q4 release window, which falls in-line with what Schreier has heard about a November release. Prior to this change, the game had an internal release date of September 30, falling outside of the Q4 period.
