God of War Ragnarok October Release Date Potentially Leaked

God of War Ragnarok is officially slated to release sometime this year via PS4 and PS5. The million-dollar question is when exactly? There has been a metric ton of speculation and rumors claiming the game is going to be delayed to 2023, but so far nothing has come of any of this scuttlebutt.

It's not the norm, but it happens.
