When could God of War Ragnarok come out on PC?

This is one of the most important releases of the year for PlayStation since it’s the second game of that reboot that God of War suffered in 2018 when a certain Cory Barlog (of Santa Monica Studios) took over from the old PS2 and PS3 releases to direct a true masterpiece. That unexpected turn for many was a breath of fresh air and an entrance through the big door in the current panorama of exclusive Sony hits.

God of War Ragnarok is out now

The fact is that from November 8, 2022 god of war ragnarok is now available to all the lucky ones who have a PS5 or a PS4in what is the umpteenth demonstration of the power of Sony, a company that no matter how much we throw things in its face, knows how to seduce gamers with its excellent collection of exclusives. Now, since this year, the franchise starring Kratos is not limited to just entertaining us on consoles since it made the leap to PC last January 2022.

Precisely, that premiere of god of war ragnarok on consoles has caused a tsunami of users who are anxiously asking when they will be able to enjoy it on their computers and, here, we have to give you some bad news: despite the obvious collaboration of Sony with Steam or the Epic Games Store, for now the Japanese have not wanted to cloud what is a of the big bets exclusive to their machines and they are not going to distract potential buyers with siren songs from other playable shores.

So without officially knowing the release date, Is it possible to guess at what instant such an event will occur? We have enough clues to get a pretty good idea just by looking at what’s been going on over the last two years.

The key is in other exclusives

Sure enough, now we are going to act as fortune tellers but in the style of the old wise men who looked at the stars. Here, those constellations have other names that, coincidentally, were also exclusive until they landed in the guts of PC. We are talking about the first God of Warof Death Stringing. of spider-man, days gone, Detroit Become Human or the most recent Uncharted The Thief’s Legacy Collection.

Here we leave you the release dates of each of the exclusives that have been landing on PC in recent years, take a look:

Name of the game Release date on PlayStation Release date on PC
days gone April 26, 2019 May 18, 2021
Death Stranding November 8, 2019 July 14, 2020
Detroit Become Human May 25, 2018 December 12, 2019
God of War April 20, 2018 January 14, 2022
Horizon Zero Dawn March 1, 2017 August 7, 2020
spider-man September 7, 2018 August 12, 2022
Spider-Man Miles Morales November 12, 2020 November 18, 2022
Uncharted The Thief’s Legacy Collection January 28, 2022 October 19, 2022

If we trust the data of the first God of War, we would have to wait almost four years to have ragnarok on PC, that is, around August 2026. It seems like a long time, so it is better to look at the case of other PS4 and PS5 titles that hit stores in 2019 or 2020, when that avalanche really begins of premieres for computers by the Japanese.

So death strading just had to wait a year in workshops to land in PC stores, while Spider-Man Miles Morales It has been another of those that have barely taken 12 months to cross the sidewalk. What can that mean? Well, basically, once Sony has verified that the bet on computers is giving good results and that users have not stopped perceiving these franchises as exclusive to PlayStation compared to Xbox, bringing these developments faster to computers does not affect to your overall strategy. What’s more, the more modern the release, the less time it takes to convert it to compatibility.

What date do we opt for then? If we had to bet a euro cent, we would risk saying that within a year god of war ragnarok will it be ready on PC, even a little bit sooner, maybe before the summer? At the latest by early 2024… although nothing seems to even point to this possibility.

Do you think we will be right? Tell us your theory…
