God of War Ragnarok is reportedly releasing in November

While it was a no-show at yesterday’s Summer Game Fest, Sony Santa Monica’s God of War Ragnarok is reportedly being targeted for a November 2022 release.

According to a report from Bloomberg, PlayStation is expected to announce the precise release date later this month. Despite some outlets reporting that God of War Ragnarok was going to be delayed to 2023, three sources that were familiar with the game’s development say that it is still on track to release this year.

However, game development is often turbulent and plans can always change. While a November release could be the case internally right now, there’s always the chance for a last-minute delay.

Despite widespread rumors, Sony's God of War Ragnarok was not delayed to 2023, according to people familiar with the project. Video game development is turbulent and the game could very well slip again, but as of this week, it's planned for November

The game was rated in South Korea late last month, indicating that it could be getting an official release date soon. But God of War Ragnarok was noticeably absent from yesterday’s Summer Game Fest showcase. However, PlayStation did officially announce The Last of Us Part I, and it’s coming to PlayStation 5 on September 2 and later to PC.

Last month, director Cory Barlog released a video saying that he wanted to share footage of the game, but he wasn’t quite ready yet. The last official update about it was last month when the PlayStation Blog covered the game’s accessibility features.

With Horizon Forbidden West having been released earlier this year, and The Last of Us Part I coming in September, God of War Ragnarok could potentially close out a blockbuster year for PlayStation in November.

God of War Ragnarok is set to release on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.

Communicating while in a Helldivers 2 party with friends will soon be easier than ever, as PlayStation announced Thursday that it'll be rolling out built-in Discord voice chat to PlayStation 5 consoles.

While Discord voice chat has been available on the PS5 since last year, you needed to use an outside app on your mobile device or computer to access it. With the latest update, all you'll need to do is go to the Discord tab on the console after linking your PlayStation and Discord accounts together, then choose the server, channel, or DM you want to join. So no more looking for your phone to start chatting.

Concord: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more
Two characters face off in Concord.

When PlayStation announced it was embracing the live-service model for future first-party titles, Concord was one of the first games we saw. PlayStation previously had a strong multiplayer presence, but around the time of the PS4 generation, the focus shifted almost entirely to big-budget single-player experiences. Some fans are a little hesitant about the quality of these upcoming games, and Concord will be the first one at bat, so it has a lot to prove. Now that we've seen the game in action and have a better grasp of what it will be, let's jump into the colorful world of Concord to see what it's all about.
Release date

As revealed during PlayStation's May 2024 State of Play, Concord is coming this fall on August 23, 2024. There will also be a beta test before the full release sometime in July, but no specific date was given.
Concord is coming from a Sony first-party studio so it will be a PS5 console exclusive. However, in line with Sony's new PC strategy, Concord will also launch on PC at the same time as the PS5. Be aware that PC players will be required to have a PSN account in order to play Concord.
