Ragnarok Release Teased By God Of War Merch
As game delays once again become the norm in 2022, the second half of the year looks clear for God of War Ragnarok to claim the crown. Well, that's if we ever get a God of War Ragnarok release date. No matter how many times Sony Santa Monica assures us the concluding chapter of the Norse mythology is on the way, we won't believe it until Ragnarok is in our hands.
Released in 2018, SSM's God of War reboot was the long-awaited sequel to 2010's God of War III. Giving us more than a change of scenery for Kratos, it became the best-selling PS4 game ever and is held by some as one of the best video games of all time. With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 put out to pasture until 2023, Kratos should be able to flex his muscles... if we ever get a Ragnarok release date.
When Is The God Of War Ragnarok Release?
Merchandise might sound like an odd place to learn a AAA game's release date, but now, some God of War Ragnarok merch has potentially got the jump on an official Sony announcement. We know a PlayStation State of Play is on the way, but with it focusing on third-party games and PSVR2, God of War is sitting this one out.
While we're still in the dark about a mythical Ragnarok release date, Twitter account @the_marmolade points out that UK-based retailer The Geeky Zone has a tonne of Ragnarok merch. It's not exactly an announcement from Game Director Eric Williams, but with a potential September release date, it lines up with what we've previously heard.
There's some adorable merch like a Ragnarok-branded hat and Kratos plushie, and if you want to get your hands on them, you can from September. Given that Geeky Zone has since taken down the listing, it's only made us think it's the real deal even more.
When Will Sony Give Us An Official Ragnarok Date?
As the months go on without a Ragnarok release date, at least the good news is that we're getting closer to one. Remember, Lead Destruction Artist Ruben Morales teased that Ragnarok was already playable - that had us looking to a release date in the near future. It's confirmed as a cross-gen sequel, but sadly, could be one of the last PS4 games before we go native with PS5.
September is a month that has repeatedly cropped up in Ragnarok circles, and we most recently reported it when the game was rated in Saudi Arabia. It might seem strange to join the dots, but when a game is rated, it's usually one of the last steps for release. Here's hoping for a full-blown Ragnarok showcase akin to the one we just had for Hogwarts Legacy, but then again, Sony could leave us banished in the cold winds of Midgard for a little longer.
