Cory Barlog has spoken out against the “disappointing” move made by some retailers to sell God of War: Ragnarok two weeks early, which has resulted in a huge number of spoilers on the internet. While Sony‘s exclusive won’t be released until November 9th, it appears that players have already gotten their hands on it and are posting screenshots and spoilers online.
This Thursday, Cory addressed the problem, calling the latest situation “very disappointing” and apologizing to anyone who must now avoid even more GOW spoilers. He took to Twitter to talk about how upset he was with the situation.
In his most recent tweets regarding the spoiler issue, Barlog began by saying he had come to appreciate the value of placing an installer on a physical disc rather than the entire game. Even while Barlog didn’t call of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it seems clear that he was referring to the fact that the retail copy of Modern Warfare 2 was merely a download disc and not the full game.
you know, right now, I can really understand the benefit of having just an installer on the physical disc.

The overall playtime for God of War: Ragnarok is projected to exceed 50 hours. Fans will be upset to learn that spoilers have already been posted online, despite the fact that the game has a lot to offer. As for the players, who are genuinely interested in experiencing the game by playing it themselves, now more than ever, they should avoid reading or looking at any posts or forums with spoilers.
God of War Ragnarok was supposed to be released in 2018, but Sony decided to push back the launch date to 2022 so that Santa Monica Studio, which is developing the game, can create “a top-quality game while ensuring the safety and wellness” of its workers.
