When Sony announced the next game in the God of War series in September 2020, the short video read "2021". But it is becoming increasingly unlikely that we will be able to play the action game this year.
God of War is probably taking a little more time
At the last State of Play a few days ago, God of War, which some believe the subtitle is Ragnarök, was not mentioned. A game that is due to appear in 2021 and of which there was not even gameplay to be seen, should be shown soon. Therefore, fans suspected that the release will no longer take place this year. Industry insider and games journalist Jason Schreier also said that he didn't believe that the new God of War would appear in 2021.
Now Cory Barlog, the game's creative director, has spoken out. While he does not explicitly mention God of War, it is clear that he is referring to this game. On Twitter he just said "WHEN. IT'S. DONE." What he wants to say is that "God of War: Ragnarök" will appear when it is finished. According to Corey Barlog, the fans here should trust him because that would be the best for everyone. He's not wrong about that. Developers should take the time to really get a game in good shape and condition. At Cyberpunk 2077 we saw what happens when that isn't the case.
In addition, there is also the corona pandemic, which continues to force many developers to work from home, which lowers productivity somewhat. So it's unlikely that we'll get the new God of War later this year.

Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
