PlayStation boss Jim Ryan has provided an update on God of War Ragnarok and when PlayStation fans can expect the game’s release on PS4 and PS5. During a new interview, Ryan noted that both Guerrilla Games’ Horizon Forbidden West and Sony Santa Monica’s new God of War will be released “in the next year,” implying that God of War Ragnarok, or whatever ends up being. officially called – it will be released in 2022. However, the statement – apparently – leaves the door open for the game to launch even later. To this end, Ryan noted that neither he nor all Sony games will rush, as gamers only remember the “best games,” and if it takes more time to reach this level, the team will be given more time.
“It is better to wait and have a great game than to rush and have a game that is [solo] good or pretty good, ”Ryan said as he spoke to TMTPost. “Players only remember [los] better games rather than acceptable games. If it’s a better game, players may want a sequel, and they’ll want to buy a sequel too, but no one really cares about a game that’s just okay. ” Of course, due to financial and product portfolio considerations, we will also push the studios to deliver a certain product within the expected time frame. But in general, we don’t want products that are good, we want the best ”.
As you may know, this comment from Ryan echoes what we’ve heard from reports and rumors, which is that Sony, under Ryan more than ever, has doubled down on big-budget premium experiences. In other words, create games that fall into the “best” category.
Fortunately for Sony, something special is brewing at the Santa Monica studios with the God of War team under the leadership of Cory Barlog. With the reboot of the franchise in 2018, Barlog and company created one of the best and most valued games of the last generation. At the moment, there is no reason to doubt that this success will continue with the game’s successor on PS5.
