The release of God of War Ragnarök will be accompanied by two special editions called the Collector’s Edition and Jotnar Edition, according to a new report shared today by industry insider Tom Henderson, who claims that Sony was planning to announce a release date for Santa Monica Studios’ sequel today but decided to alter its plans, possibly due to another reputable insider having leaked the date in advance. Both of these editions will purportedly feature a 1:1 scale replica of Mjölnir, Thor’s hammer, with the Collector’s Edition offering additional bonuses in the form of badges, a map of the world, and more. A blog post for God of War Ragnarök that includes its release date and a video detailing the collector’s editions are reportedly “ready to go live at any given moment,” although it’s still unclear when the game might launch. Speculation has pointed to a November 11 release based on Sony’s release habits and the launch dates of other hit titles slated for this holiday. Cory Barlog, who directed the original God of War, took to Twitter recently to calm fans down who have grown impatient with his studio, some of whom have seemingly gone so far as to send dick pics to its developers.
Are you fucking kidding me with this now???— cory barlog (@corybarlog) June 30, 2022
I cannot believe I even have to say this but don’t fucking send dick pics to ANYONE on this team, or anyone in this industry for that matter.
They are busting their ass to make some for you to enjoy.
Show some fucking respect. https://t.co/o0xEZkWouj
PlayStation Game Size, a reputable leaker who accesses information via the PlayStation Store API has also said in a private conversation (and has given permission to publish this info) that the God of War Ragnarok store page updated at 8PM BST yesterday, which he speculated could be a change to the pre-order date.
Coincidently, the store update came just a couple of hours after Santa Monica Studio’s Cory Barlog told fans to be patient about announcements on the game.
Recently, Sony has preferred to release its major first-party titles on a Friday, leaving only a few possible dates on when the game will be released if they continue the trend.
The next Need for Speed installment is due to launch on November 4th and sources have suggested that the current plan for Ubisoft’s Avatar title is due to launch on November 18th; unless there’s a delay.
