The await­ed sequel to 2018’s God of War has, unfor­tu­nate­ly, been delayed. The game–which has­n’t been offi­cial­ly titled but is known as God of War: Rag­narok and God of War 2–is now set to launch in 2022. Anoth­er shock­ing bit of infor­ma­tion, is that it will launch on both PS4 and PS5, even though it appeared to be a PS5 exclu­sive previously.

Head of PlaySta­tion Stu­dios Her­man Hulst, stat­ed devel­op­er Sony San­ta Mon­i­ca Stu­dios is being affect­ed by lim­it­ed access to spe­cial­ist tech­nol­o­gy like motion cap­ture equip­ment. The inter­view on PlaySta­tion Blog with Hulst says this is the cause of the delay for the next God of War title.

For God of War, the project start­ed a lit­tle lat­er,” Hulst stat­ed. “So we’ve made the deci­sion to push that game out to next year, to ensure that San­ta Mon­i­ca Stu­dio can deliv­er the amaz­ing God of War game that we all want to play.”

Hulst also men­tioned Hori­zon For­bid­den West, say­ing the game may miss its hol­i­day 2021 launch, but assured fans that Guer­ril­la Games is “work­ing as hard as [it] can” to fin­ish it.

With these things, some­thing’s got­ta give,” Hulst added. “It can­not be the qual­i­ty of our titles, and it sure­ly won’t be the health or the well­be­ing of our amaz­ing team.”

News regard­ing God of War: Rag­narok has been rather scarce since the teas­er was released back in Sep­tem­ber 2020. It’s unclear what will the game will even involve or the true name.
