November 9, 2022 will be released God of War Ragnarok, the new game of the adventures of Kratos and Atreus developed by Santa Monica Studio. It is one of the most important games of the period, perhaps the most important, also from the point of view of other developers and publishers. The latter would be in fact moving other games not to get in the way of God of War Ragnarok.
According to Tim Gettys of Kinda Funny, developers and publishers could be “frightened“from God of War Ragnarok. Gettys later added that he had had business phone calls with various people who said things that” shocked him. “He stated that the developers and publishers are moving away from God of War Ragnarok and are” changing. the plans “for some things. He didn’t go into too specific, but stated that all of this was done to make room for God of War Ragnarok.
Considering we’re talking about a first-party exclusive and the sequel to one of the winners of the GOTY of The Game Awards, it’s not too strange for this to happen.
No specific examples are given, but recently we have seen that Forspoken has been moved from October 2022 to January 2023 and some have speculated that the choice of Square Enix is due to the desire not to keep the game too close to God of War Ragnarok.
Of course God of War Ragnarok won’t be completely alone. There will also be Skull and Bones (November 8, 2022) and games like Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Gotham Knights, a few weeks earlier. Tell us, which of these are you waiting for the most?
