God of War Ragnarök is one of the most highly-anticipated video games in 2022. A direct sequel to God of War 2018, Ragnarök continues to follow Kratos and his son Atreus throughout the Nine Realms and Norse Mythology. Several Gods from the mythos have already been confirmed for the title, with the highlight being Thor and Odin, as per Sony Santa Monica.
Sony has not, as of yet, confirmed a release date for the new title. However, it stated the game will release sometime in 2022, likely in the latter half of the year. This came after the developers announced that God of War Ragnarök was delayed past its initial 2021 release date.
Although a release date has not yet been given, a recent leak could indicate when the game is slated to launch.

The leak comes from the Twitter account @PlayStationSize, which is dedicated to searching through the PlayStation database to find file sizes for upcoming game updates and possible release dates.

The release date the account found for God of War Ragnarök is Sept. 30, 2022. This would line up with when Sony Santa Monica would likely want to release the game. That date doesn’t currently surround any other large video game releases in 2022, giving it the most attention possible. The closest game launch would be Hogwarts Legacy, which has an unconfirmed release date of early September.
Still, nothing official has surfaced regarding a release date for Sony Santa Monica’s newest God of War game. Fans will have to wait a bit longer for any official news on that front.
