God Of War director defends staff from abuse following sequel’s delay

After a God Of War: Ragnarök staff member received abuse for its delay, director Cory Barlog asks that people be upset with him instead.

News of God Of War: Ragnarök’s delay was always going to disappoint people, considering it was teased for a 2021 release. But, as always, some have decided to be unnecessarily nasty about it and throw abuse at the game’s staff.

Alanah Pearce, one of the sequel’s writers, shared abusive messages sent to her over Twitter concerning the delay. The sender seems to suggest that the delay was due to Pearce being ‘useless’ and not doing her job, and they hope she gets fired.

This prompted creative director Cory Barlog to defend her, as well as the entire staff, and claim full responsibility for the delay.

‘You want to be mad at somebody for anything [God Of War] related – the delay, PS4/5, trolls, subtitle size, Sigrun, whatevs – be angry with me. I made the calls. I did this.’

Barlog’s comments have received support from fans who understand the decision to delay the game and express sympathy for Pearce. Some have agreed that nothing justifies abuse and that no one has any real reason to be angry with Barlog or any of the staff.

Sony appeared to have inadvertently confirmed the name in some financial documents. But it turned out that the Ragnarök logo it used was fan-made and the documents were soon updated to replace it with a more generic God Of War logo.

God Of War: Ragnarök will release in 2022 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
