God of War Sequel Delayed; Sony Confirms PS4 Release

Hermen Hulst and Sony Santa Monica confirmed rumors about the delay of God of War's sequel. Kratos' new adventure in the world of the Nordic gods will be released only in 2022 on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

Rumors about the delay of the release of the new God of War by Sony have been circulating for a long time, but only now we got a confirmation of the info. An interview with Hermen Hulst (co-founder of Guerrilla Games and head of Sony Worldwide Studios) appeared on the official PlayStation blog. He mentioned that the sequel of God of War has been 'delayed until next year', referring to the Holiday release of Horizon: Forbidden West. Sony Santa Monica also spoke out. The devs announced on Twitter that the second installment of Kratos' Nordic adventures will be released only in 2022.

Incidentally, Hulst also revealed another thus unconfirmed piece of information. In the post we read that the new God of War - just like Gran Turismo 7 and the second installment of Horizon - is being designed with not only PlayStation 5 but also PS4 in mind. Sony doesn't want to cut itself off from the people who bought one of the more than 110 million copies of PlayStation 4.

Unfortunately, the information is virtually the only solid mention of the next God of War, if you don't count Sony's correction regarding the game's title (which is still not approved as God of War: Ragnarok, via VentureBeat). Many months have passed since the confirmation of the start of work on the project in September, and during this time not a single teaser, screenshot or any other material from the game appeared. Apparently, this dry spell will last a long time.
