God of War: Ragnarok

Well, it’s finally here. The release date has finally been announced for the much-anticipated follow-up to the 2018 soft reboot of God of War. The long-awaited God of War: Ragnarök is scheduled to release November 9, 2022.

This puts to bed the long-running sewing-circle mill of debate as to whether or not Ragnarök would in fact meet its previously stated blanketed release window of 2022, or receive the Dim Mak touch of death and be delayed into 2023 or possibly beyond. To be honest, having such fears kind of felt premature — and even immature — given there is still a healthy chunk of 2022 still to be had as of the time of this writing. But immaturity seems to go hand-in-hand in the video game fan sphere.

This was on full display only a short week ago when Sony Santa Monica Cinematics Producer Estelle Tigani tweeted the following, revealing some GoW stans had been apparently DMing dick pics to help expedite the release date reveal:

Obviously, no one wants unsolicited pictures of stranger’s penises. Hell, I would argue that no one wants solicited pictures of stranger’s penises, at least if they’re not tastefully artsy. And putting aside the criminal severity of sending surprise DPs to someone who neither asked for nor wanted them, just to help expedite a video game company to tell you when you can expect to be able to buy its game… just… why? In what world does this seem like a good, solid, reasonable thing to do?

Of course, if these man-babies would’ve just waited patiently, they would’ve been informed as to when Ragnarök would be expected to come out without having sexually harassed this poor person — someone I assume has no control over this date anyway.

But the problem is, even though the offenders received a dose of scorn from the gaming community, and perhaps are currently under criminal investigation, some of these clowns might see this as a victory. After all, Sony did announce the release date in seemingly close proximity to when these dick pics were sent — a direct correlation between exposing their presumably grotesque, dust-covered, unwashed members and the announcement.

I hope we haven’t just witnessed the inception of a new fanboy tactic to add to their pathetic arsenal.

In the meantime, you can check out the trailer for God of War: Ragnarök below and get yourself excited for the special edition accoutrement Sony is also hocking. Cheers!
