God of War Ragnarok fans will have to wait a little longer to hear about the game as it is claimed that the release date announcement heavily rumored to take place at the end of June has been delayed.
Writing the report on Exputer, reliable insider Tom Henderson claims that the supposed God of War Ragnarok announcement that was scheduled today has been delayed. “this announcement was still the plan until just yesterday, with Sony announcing the release date of the game in addition to the God of War Collector’s Editions,” says Henderson.
The announcement was not even supposed to be done through a dedicated State of Play showcase, but simply through a PlayStation Blog post, which would have revealed the release date, the Collector’s Editions, and an update that development is going well with gameplay to follow at a later date.
Henderson says that the reason for the delay was unclear, but the actual post and Collector’s Editions trailers are “ready to go live at any given moment if given the green light.”
God of War Ragnarok Collector’s Edition Rumored Details
Henderson continues his report with supposed details of the Collector’s Edition of God of War Ragnarok, which is said to have 2 variants – Jotnar Edition and Collector’s Edition.
Both editions are said to contain a 1:1 scale replica of Thor’s Mjolnir Hammer, with the Jotnar Edition only getting the replica and the game. The Collector’s Edition will contain more goodies such as badges, a world map, and much more.
Henderson did not reveal any pricing details.
Cory Barlog recently disputed claims that the game is delayed, and assured players that news and updates about the game will come when they’re ready. Jason Schreier also mentions that the game is still on track for a 2022 release, with November 11 being the “sensible” date so as not to compete with other big-ticket releases in the same month.
