God of War Ragnarok: Studios Change Game Premieres to Avoid the Game
the arrival of God of War: Ragnarok PlayStation consoles are getting closer and closer, with the continuation of Kratos and Atreus’ adventure scheduled for November this year. And it turns out it’s not just the Norse gods who are shivering at the base in fear of the duo’s brutality: apparently, some devs are changing the release date of their own games not to coincide with the next title of the “good of war”.
At least that’s what YouTuber and entrepreneur Tim Gettys claimed in one of the recent episodes of Kinda Funny Games Daily. At the time, he said he had made some “business calls” in which some people would have admitted to be avoiding bumping into the new God of War.
On the show, Gettys said that some devs are changing the release dates of your games to avoid getting hit for the bestseller God of War: Ragnarok.
God of War Ragnarök might be so big, that games are moving out of their way!

“I think we’re getting to this interesting point where games are getting scared with God of War: Ragnarok“, the YouTuber said. “I made business calls backstage with people who said things that shocked me. Like, ‘we’re getting out’, ‘we’re turning back’ and ‘we’re making room for God of War‘” he added.
Gettys did not go into further detail, omitting which games would be avoiding clashing with the new GoW, but the choice is more than understandable — and even expected. After all, the series starring Kratos is one of the most famous in the gaming world, as well as probably being the biggest PlayStation release of 2022.
God of War: Ragnarok arrives on November 9 this year for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
