After much speculation, God of War: Ragnarok finally has a release date per the PlayStation blog earlier this morning. Kratos and Atreus will be making their long-awaited return in the direct sequel to God of War (2018) which first featured the dual protagonists for the first time.

Many different rumors have come out in the previous few months, all detailing different timelines, rumored delays, and other various issues that would change when the game would get released. For the first time though, we now know for sure when the game is coming out.

God of War: Ragnarok Release Date Announced

God of War: Ragnarok will release Nov. 9, 2022, just over four months from now. This announcement puts to rest the rumors that were swirling around regarding the game's timeline, and fans of Kratos can finally look forward to their next adventure with title character and his young son featured in the 2018 God of War game.

A new cinematic trailer also debuted, teasing the themes of unity and togetherness through the father-son duo that will likely thread its way throughout the storytelling. Additionally the trailer did confirm that there would be both PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, welcome news for fans who have struggled to get their hands on the newest generation of consoles since their launch.

The November release of the game means that it'll be a big holiday marketing point for PlayStation, likely meaning if you want to wait a month or so to avoid paying full price, those holiday deals will be your best friend.
