God of War: Ragnarok is not being pushed back to 2023, producer Corey Barlog said, amid rumors that new information about the highly anticipated PS4 and PS5 game could arrive today, June 30th. Tom Henderson revealed that Sony planned to announce a release date today in addition to the game’s Collector’s Editions.
However, the report says the announcements have been delayed for unknown reasons. As for the collector’s edition rumors, Henderson said that the collector’s edition will include a 1:1 scale replica of Mjolnir Thor’s hammer and icons, a map of the game’s world, and more; while the Jotnar Edition will have a hammer and a game. Pricing details weren’t revealed in the report, and Sony hasn’t officially announced anything about premium editions of God of War: Ragnarok, if they exist at all.
Barlog and other members of the Ragnarok team have come across a lot of fan questions online about Ragnarok. Alana Pierce, a writer at Sony Santa Monica, tweeted, “Screaming people about video game release dates doesn’t do anything at all.”
She added, “Even if they date you (never) because of harassing people, you also don’t get anything if you find out before the team is ready to share.”
Common sense: yelling at people about video game release dates doesn’t do anything at all. Even if people date you because of harassment (never), you also get nothing by learning about it before the team is ready to share.

The God of War: Ragnarok development team has faced criticism from some fans over the lack of information, and Xbox boss Phil Spencer has spoken out to show support for the team.
“Can’t wait to enjoy GoW when it comes out. And thank you and your team for the amazing job of making things we love. Thanks”, Spencer told Barlog.
Just this week, Barlog urged fans to “please be patient” regarding news of Ragnarok. “If it was up to me, I would share all the information when I find out about it. But it does not depend on me,” he said. “So please be patient. I promise that everything will be revealed at the earliest possible moment.”
According to the report, Ragnarok will release in November, although the same report states that the date is not fixed and may change.
