God of War Ragnarok is expected to debut at the PlayStation Showcase in September 2021.
The PlayStation Showcase will take place in September 2021, according to Sony. The first full look at God of War Ragnarok could be one of the big reveals during the PS5 games live.
The sequel to the critically acclaimed PS4 exclusive from last year was initially revealed during the PS5 September 2020 event. All that was announced at the time was a short teaser film featuring the God of War insignia and the words “Ragnarok is coming.” However, that brief announcement was enough to raise the stakes, as another big PlayStation exclusive was confirmed.
And it appears like PS5 fans will get a first glimpse at Cory Barlog’s next project at the forthcoming PS5 September event.
This information comes from @Shpeshal Nick, a co-founder of XboxEra who has previously disclosed reliable information, such as the inclusion of Final Fantasy 7 Remake in a PS Plus lineup earlier this year.
Following today’s PlayStation Showcase announcement, the co-host of the XboxEra Podcast tweeted a screenshot of a discussion a leaker had with a source.
Shpeshal Nick’s contact information had been redacted, including his name.
“Just checking again, God of War going to be there?” the XboxEra podcaster said during the interview.
In response, their contact merely said, “Yes.”
VGC editor-in-chief Andy Robinson has heard that the next PlayStation event would feature some “amazing” announcements.
“I’ve been told there are some great announcements in this,” Robinson tweeted.
On Thursday, September 9 at 9 p.m. BST, the PlayStation Showcase for September 2021 will take place.
The program will span approximately 40 minutes and will include announcements from PlayStation Studios as well as industry-leading developers, according to Sony.
“Save the date!” said the PlayStation UK Twitter account.
The “PlayStation Showcase 2021” will air live on Thursday.
“Get an early look at PS5’s future with updates from PlayStation Studios and industry-leading developers. I look forward to seeing you there!”
“Tune in next Thursday, September 9 at 1:00pm Pacific Time / 9:00pm BST / 10:00pm CEST for a look into the future of PS5,” said Sid Shuman, senior director of SIE Content Communications, in a blog post. The Showcase will last about 40 minutes and will include announcements from PlayStation Studios and some of the industry’s most innovative creators for games coming out this holiday season and beyond.
