If new PS5 owners hope to be next God of War The game will end in 2021, and they may have to wait a little longer. The game has been postponed to 2022, Sony Santa Monica citing the “safety and welfare” of its developers.
This news comes after last year’s talk of the developer crisis came to a head. After the release of Cyberpunk 2077 and its developers’ stories about their gruesome hours, it’s clear that more studios are trying to prioritize the health of their teams.

Much in the community could see this delay coming, and not many expected a God of War sequel to be released in 2021, to begin with. It’s been a tough year for everyone, including game studios.
With no news of a trailer or any other coverage in 2021 yet, it was pretty clear that God of War wouldn’t appear in 2021. Given the first God of War release in 2018, it seemed unlikely that a game would be released. New with the size, scope and promise of its predecessor within three years.
in official Play Station Hermen Holst, president of PlayStation Studios, stated that they were working on two hard-hitting narrative games: Horizon Forbidden West and God of War. These will be the headlines for the PS5.
One of the problems, Holst said, is the difficulty of accessing motion capture and performance capture during the global pandemic. Horizon Forbidden West is currently still slated for a late 2021 release, but God of War launched later, and as a result, it won’t be released until 2022.
The latest news we received about the sequel to God of War arrived in September 2020. A short trailer and nothing more was released, although this is the time when the speculative release date of 2021 rumbled around the community.
In terms of PlayStation exclusives, it was a slightly odd start to the PS5 life cycle. The comeback was a huge success, although this was just one game.
Xbox is teasing its new relationship with Bethesda, so it will be interesting to see how Sony steps up its exclusive game over the next couple of years.
The sequel to God of War, now slated for release in 2022, will be a big part of that success.
