Fans of this hit cinematic title have been waiting for news of its release date — so when is God of War Ragnarok coming out? Here's what we know.

When does 'God of War Ragnarok' release?

It's been years since God of War Ragnarok was confirmed, and after much patience from fans, it seems we finally have a release date. Many were hoping to see the PlayStation exclusive hit consoles sometime in 2021, though Santa Monica Studios later revealed the title would be delayed to 2022.

In July, Sony revealed that the game would release as scheduled in 2022, hitting PlayStation consoles on Nov. 9.

Ragnarok was originally scheduled to release in 2021 alongside Horizon Forbidden West, though both titles were pushed to 2022. Forbidden West was released in February.

“For God of War, the project started a little later. So we’ve made the decision to push that game out to next year, to ensure that Santa Monica Studio can deliver the amazing God of War game that we all want to play," Sony's head of worldwide studios Herman Hulst said in September 2021 following a State of Play presentation.

Preorders for 'God of War Ragnarok' will begin in July 2022.

Multiple versions of the game will be available for preorder in July, depending on what additional goodies you're looking to get your hands on (and how much money you're willing to shell out for the upcoming game).
