The expectation of God of War Ragnarok has reached the point of late fever. Over the past four weeks, we’ve seen delays due to rumors of a release date, everything has been thrown in for good with some social media postings of Sony Santa Monica’s Corey Barlog – God of War News Machine is looking like a wack-a-mole cabinet of late. It’s all a little confusing, so here’s a brief timeline to catch you.
