Fans are hoping for a God of War Ragnarok release date announcement soon as the game has received its first age rating by the Korean rating board, GRAC. Unsurprisingly, Kratos’ latest outing has received a mature classification due to its content, which includes profanity and alcohol, according to a translation of the entry.
When to expect God of War Ragnarok release date announcement
Amid skepticism, Sony has reiterated on multiple occasions that God of War Ragnarok will release this year. Fans have expressed concerns that Santa Monica Studio has barely showcased anything and we had no updates until this month when the developer finally broke its silence and detailed the game’s accessibility settings. Although a rating board listing doesn’t guarantee anything, it does seem to suggest that we’ll get some much-awaited news soon.
According to a recent rumor, Sony has an event planned for early June, around the same time E3 would have been. Speculation suggests that we’ll see more of God of War Ragnarok at the event. However, journalist and insider Jeff Grubb quashed some of those hopes by suggesting that the upcoming event might be focused on PSVR 2, and reliable insider AccountNgt later added that Sony is unlikely to hold any “major” events until September, at least. Prior to this, a different insider claimed that there won’t be a God of War Ragnarok State of Play anytime soon.
All of this sounds negative but rumors are rumors, and it’s possible that we’ll finally hear or see something next month. We just wouldn’t advise holding your breath because we aren’t privy to Sony’s plans. That said, we’ll keep our readers posted if there are any developments.
In other news, Sony has confirmed that PSVR 2 will launch with over 20 games, and there are plans for 12 PlayStation live service games by 2025.
