Game News God of War Ragnarok: After the controversy, the director of the game continues his ridicule

God of War Ragnarok has been in the news lately, and sadly not always for good reasons. Still expected for 2022, the title has yet to have a release date, and the likely postponement of the announcement has sparked outrage among fans.

Initially: a possibly postponed notice

It all started June 30 finally, when Tom Henderson and Jason Schreier revealed that the release date of God of War: Ragnarok was supposed to be announced that day, but communication with postponed. Often, such a communication lag indicates that a significant problem, which can doubt the release date of a game, is detected. However, there is no indication that this is the case for the God of War Ragnarok.

Regarding the rumors surrounding God of War Ragnarok: there is an announcement of a release date set for this Thursday, June 30, according to people familiar with the matter. Recent tweets from Cory Barlog (director of the game, editor’s note) mean it’s been pushed back. As such, as far as I know, the game hasn’t been pushed yet.

Strong reactions from all sides

As you can read, Jason Schreier shows that to his knowledge, no postponement of the match was decided. After the publication of this information, many fans, were disappointed to know that the announcement of the release date could be postponed, attacked developers by acerbic tweets, but also by sending clear photos to some team members.

Pro Tip: Sends me pictures of penises asking me when God of War Ragnarok will actually notify me of the release date. For those who use this method, when does it work ?, says Estelle Tigani, cinematic producer in Santa Monica.

For his part, Cory Barlog, who has already declared that he is completely tired of the development of the previous episode, reacted. He was first expressed his (unfortunate) surprise at watching the players chase Ron Gilbert about the artistic direction of Return to Monkey Island, then then reacted to a tweet denying responsibility for the reactions players in The Snitch, a famous leaker, and Jason Schreier.

The director of God of War shows the right response to these attacks not finding someone on “to blame or hate”but rather “to make the world a better place to treat people who do the things you love with respect and dignity.” A reaction welcomed by Phil Spencer, boss of Microsoft’s Xbox branch. Afterwards, Santa Monica issued an official statement, intended to calm things down:

Every employee in Santa Monica works to create a game we’re proud of, and hope you enjoy it when it’s released. Our fans inspire us, and we understand the love and desire for new information. But this love must not be poisonous, nor must it be expressed to the detriment of anyone’s dignity. We celebrate our community by treating everyone – gamers and developers – with respect.

Back to calm back to flirting

As such, Cory Barlog continues his march forward, joking again about the upcoming release of God of War Ragnarok. In his tweet, we understand that the title is already on the way, and no one suggested it be postponed. A well -received teaser, along with responses mentioning good birthday dates for an announcement, inspiration, and some questions about the PC version. However, we have to wait a little until we know when we will find Kratos and Atreus.

Oh, and … Ragnarök come you moms! 🤘❤️

As a reminder, God of War Ragnarok will be released on PS4 and PS5.
