Sony Unintentionally Confirmed God of War: Ragnarok Title in the Latest Financial Report

Published 05/27/2021, 12:01 PM EDT


Japanese gaming giant, Sony, has recently shared an investor report, which contained images of various titles. In the report, the studio mistakenly confirmed the name of the highly expected sequel as God of War: Ragnarok. So far, the studio has only revealed a teaser trailer, which was released 8 months ago. The teaser only confirmed that Ragnarok is approaching, and it never revealed the name, release date, or gameplay.

However, this latest report has mistakenly revealed the name ahead of its release, which the studio rectified later on. Safe to say, this mistake was unintended, but it has indeed become a major talking point.

Sony has not made any official announcement nor confirmed this news. By all means, fans should take this news with a grain of salt, as the title is still under production. The financial filing merely contained information about the company’s performance and the plans for the future. The teaser trailer only contains one line, and the trademark logo God of War. This exact logo with blue color was seen inside the report with Ragnarok written underneath.

The storyline of God of War 4 teased the fans of things that are yet to come. The studio gave the fans an elaborate tease about things to come to the come. The final act of the game foreshadowed Kratos’ death, while Loki could take over. The franchise will not be the same after Kratos exits the game.

He has died many times within the storyline, but on every occasion, he came back from death. However, the franchise has changed direction drastically, ever since God of War 4 was released. The franchise carries a more serious tone with characters and a storyline that fans can follow through like a movie.

The game’s combat feels less like a hack and slash experience and more like a game of chess. This significant change has caught the entire fanbase by surprise and it seems like Kratos might die once again. However, this death might not be permanent, as the franchise cannot hope to continue without everyone’s favorite war god.
