God of War returns in the sequel to the 2018 game where Kratos is in the middle of Norse mythology. He crosses paths with Modi, Magni, Freya, is constantly hunted by Baldur, with Odin and Thor the ever-present threat. Kratos and his son’s, Atreus’, actions bring about the great winter, Ragnarok. Development, and the title, of the next game, were announced at Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal live stream on September 16, 2020.

The next game focuses on how the powerful Æsir gods handle these two. What do we know so far about the game, and when can we expect it?

What is the release date for God of War: Ragnarok?

The small teaser we received at the end of the PlayStation 5 stream did not have many details. We only heard Kratos’ voice, and witnessed the reveal of the sequel’s title. No exact date was provided for the title. However, industry expert Geoff Keighley released a tweet saying, “GOD OF WAR Returns in 2021. #PlayStation5.”

While not an official announcement regarding the date for God of War: Ragnarok, it’s the closest announcement we have for a release window. We could see Kratos and Atreus return early in the PlayStation 5 cycle, which is always good news.
