PlayStation owners will have to wait a bit longer before they can take on the role of Kratos and wield his iconic Blades of Chaos again. According to a new tweet from developer Santa Monica Studio, the highly anticipated God of War sequel has been pushed back to 2022 so the team can deliver a “top-quality game” and maintain its safety and wellbeing. The delay may also have something to do with the fact that development has expanded to include a PlayStation 4 version.
The still-untitled sequel to the 2018 God of War reboot was first announced during a PlayStation 5 showcase last year. It’s set to continue the story of anti-hero Kratos and his son Atreus as they journey through the worlds of Norse mythology.
