God of War Ragnarok was supposed to release in 2021 but was delayed as Kratos’ voice actor Christopher Judge went through medical procedures. The game is now scheduled to release this year on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 and it has also been confirmed that it’ll be the last game of the series.
“Something cool” related to God of War Ragnarok is coming
4 years ago, God of War (2018) released! We’re grateful to all of you who joined Kratos and Atreus on their journey, and we’re so proud of the team who worked to bring it to life.
While we’re not ready to share an update about what comes next, here’s a quick message from Cory! pic.twitter.com/Z5PHpKQppY

Recently, Santa Monica Studio celebrated 4-year anniversary of God of War, and in a video posted on Twitter, director Cory Barlog talked about God of War Ragnarok and stated that “something cool is coming” but “it’s just not ready to be shown.”
He said “We are perfectionists. Everyone’s tightening up the graphics on level three, there is so much going on right now that I just wish that we could share with you, but it’s just not ready to be shown.” While we did get a look at the game’s combat mechanics and new enemies through the reveal trailer, we don’t have an official gameplay trailer and that might be the “something cool” Cory is talking about!
