It looks like God of War Ragnarök merchandise could be arriving in September
The PS5 exclusive was rated this week, but still doesn’t have an official release date
Sony is reportedly planning to release a range of God of War Ragnarök merchandise this year.
As spotted by VGC reader @the_marmolade, several t-shirts, plush dolls and accessories for the game have been added to retailer Geeky Zone, with a release date of September 30, 2022.
It’s worth noting that this could be a placeholder date and, as companies often release merchandise before the actual launch of the game, is not necessarily indicative of when the game itself will release.
The September 30 date is reportedly the same used for the game itself on PlayStation’s database.
Officially, God of War Ragnarök is slated for “2022”, but there’s been no significant update on its release timing since last summer.
However, along with other recent evidence, the merchandise seemingly adds credence to the chance of Ragnarök releasing this year as planned.
Earlier today, it was discovered that the sequel has been rated in South Korea.
For comparison, Horizon Forbidden West was rated in South Korea in November 2021 and was released three months later in February 2022.
In April, developer Sony Santa Monica Studio tweeted a video in which series head Cory Barlog asked fans to remain patient for news on the upcoming God of War sequel.
“Speaking of God of War Ragnarök, the elephant in the room… We haven’t said a lot about this – that’s because everybody is heads down, hard at work,” he said.

“We are perfectionists. Everyone’s tightening up the graphics on level three, there is so much going on right now that I just wish that we could share it with you, but it’s just not ready to be shown.
The video led to some concern that the God of War Ragnarök release date could have slipped from its promised 2022 window. However, the game’s animation director Bruno Velazquez later stated: “Ragnarok is coming this year.”
