The story behind the delay
“I need to be honest, this has not been approved by anyone. To my dear fans, Ragnarok has been delayed because of me. In August 2019 I could not walk, I had to operate, replace both hips and operate on my knee. They waited for me for the rehabilitation ”, has counted in an extensive thread of several messages. “No threat, no ‘who do you think you are?’ Nothing but love and support. And Sony Santa Monica has never said a word about the delay and what has caused it. The studios are bastards, but this company, from the bottom up, should give us hope ”.
Judge says that what they have done for the team is more than he can talk about. All in all, he notes that the developers have put their hearts into every aspect of the game. “Laughter, love, tears,” he says, but all “with a unconditional support in this which belongs to all of us ”.
God of War: Ragnarok is a direct sequel to the 2018 game. Kratos and his son Atreus are once again the protagonists in PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. It is an intergenerational title that was recently shown as the final touch of the PlayStation Showcase.
