Santa Monica Studios’ next installment in the God of War franchise has been delayed. According to Head of PlayStation Hermen Hulst, the next God of War has been delayed to 2022.

The reason for the delay is that development started a little late on the game. Here’s what Hulst said –

So we have, currently, two very big, very narrative-driven games in development: Horizon Forbidden West and the next God of War. And for both of those, they’re frankly affected by access to performance capture and talent. For Horizon, we think we are on track to release this holiday season. But that isn’t quite certain yet, and we’re working as hard as we can to confirm that to you as soon as we can.

And 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.

The next God of War game, call it God of War 2, or God of War Ragnarok, will be released on both PS4 and PS5.
