God Of War Ragnarok's 2022 Release Date Might Be Closer Than We Thought

Sony Santa Monica

If you can't wait to battle World Serpents and break through the gates of Valhalla, rest assured that God of War Ragnarok should be coming in 2022. While there are plenty of release dates floating around, one suggests Sony Santa Monica's sequel is closer than we ever thought.

Of course, most of us expected we'd be pummelling Thor by now thanks to the record-breaking God of War reboot releasing in 2018. As the best-selling PS4 game of all time, it was no surprise a sequel was quickly put into production. Sadly, Ragnarok was one of the many games that missed its 2021 release.

What's The Latest With The God Of War Ragnarok Release Date?

It was only recently we reported that a September release date was being thrown around for Ragnarok. Coming so late in the year would give time for the dust to settle on bit hitters like Elden Ring and PlayStation rival Horizon Forbidden West, but it's peeved those who are already tired of sitting around.

Now, the official ratings board for Saudi Arabia, the General Commission for Audiovisual Media has rated Ragnarok with an 18+ classification. The interesting bit here is that Saudi Arabia has a distinct difference between games "To be classified" and those that have the nod. If Ragnarok has bagged a bloody 18+, it could mean the board has played enough of the title to pass judgement. 

Looking at the bigger picture, the fact God of War Ragnarok has been classified in Saudi Arabia hints that Sony Santa Monica could be in the final stages of pulling back Atreus' bow and firing an arrow at the competition.

When Can We Expect God Of War Ragnarok?

There's been no official word from up high on when Ragnarok will release, but given how much departing Game Director Cory Barlog and incoming Eric Williams have shared about the state of development, expect them to let us know ASAP. The big question is, when will we be able to play?

As January whips past us, that seemingly put this month out of the running unless SSM is planning a Halo Infinite-inspired drop. Heading into February, it's a massive risk to release Ragnarok against Horizon AND Elden Ring, but it would be one way to take out your rivals with the Leviathan Axe.

This brings us to the mythical September release. Remember that ratings boards don't have to play a full game - they're largely reliant on the description and video evidence of the publisher for them to make their rating. It's entirely possible Ragnarok is being saved for an all-star release much later in the year. 

The problem is, the later we get, the more likely Ragnarok is going to but heads with StarfieldSuicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. Basically, 2022 is packed with some serious AAA titles. It might not be time to thaw Mimir just yet.
