In a latest GQ Magazine interview, PlayStation boss Jim Ryan outlined all of the first-party PS5 exclusives launching in 2021; Returnal in April, Ratchet and Clank a Rift Aside in June, and Horizon: Forbidden West in 2H 2021. The massively anticipated God of Conflict sequel wasn’t amongst these video games.
Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier, who has shut data with the video games business, additionally says Ragnarok will not launch in 2021. Whereas neither Sony or God of Conflict developer Sony Santa Monica hasn’t formally confirmed a delay, the sport’s omission from the high-profile press interview speaks volumes.
Final 12 months, months into the coronavirus pandemic, Sony pegged a 2021 launch for God of Conflict Ragnarok. New issues like work-from-home measures have impeded improvement of a number of massive video games, together with Housemarque’s Returnal, which was delayed till April, in addition to Gran Turismo 7, which has been delayed indefinitely to 2022.
