“Give Us Another Trailer” – Fans Go Berserk as God of War Ragnarok Wins an Award Without an Official Release Date!

Published 05/28/2022, 2:30 PM EDT

It is needless to mention how popular God of War is. The franchise’s upcoming PlayStation exclusive title – God of War Ragnarok is one of the most anticipated video games of 2022. In fact, some exciting news has come up regarding Ragnarok. Turns out that the much-anticipated God of War Ragnarok has started bagging awards even before its release! 

Ragnarok’s release plan had undergone a major hiccup in the past when the Santa Monica Studio had to shift the release window to 2022 from 2021. As of now, there’s no information regarding any Ragnarok-related development, except a PlayStation Showcase trailer from 2020.

A lot of fans were expecting an exclusive State of Play event for Ragnarok on May 27, 2022. However, those turned out to be invalid rumors unfortunately for the fans. The upcoming State of Play event, scheduled to happen on June 2, 2022, is also unlikely to include any content related to Ragnarok. 

PlayStation Santa Monica Studios had also posted a video on Twitter last month, starring Cory Barlog who mentioned that the team isn’t yet ready to showcase the game.

As of now, most of us seem to believe that God of War Ragnarok will drop by the end of 2022 or, if not, by early 2023.

In the tweet, Santa Monica Studios mentioned Ragnarok’s ‘incredible audio team’ who made the trailer happen and congratulated all other nominees and winners. Moreover, fans were ecstatic to hear the news about Ragnarok already making big in the world of game audio.
