God of War Ragnarok is coming this November, and the game's dev team officially announced today that a major milestone in any game's development has been met: it's gone gold.
Announced in 2020 during a PlayStation Showcase stream, God of War Ragnarok continues the story of Kratos and his son, Atreus after the events of the 2018 reboot of the franchise. With a little under a month till launch, God of War Ragnarok has gone gold, meaning that the gears are in motion to get discs printed and more to release to the public come November 9th.
Keep in mind that this doesn't mean development has stopped on Ragnarok, just that the code has been locked in to start the process of producing the physical versions of the game and more. In the time between now and launch the Santa Monica Studio team will still be hard at work doing last minute bug fixes, performance and polish passes and more to make up what will likely be a Day 1 patch like most games nowadays launch with.
We are thrilled to announce that #GodofWarRagnarok has gone gold! On behalf of SMS and all of our partners, thank you to the fans for supporting us over the course of development. We’re almost to launch and can’t wait for you to play on November 9! ?? pic.twitter.com/vptHyKJ1JP— Santa Monica Studio – God of War Ragnarök (@SonySantaMonica) October 7, 2022
Last month, God of War Ragnarok got a new story trailer, which sets the stage for players who are looking to dive into the next adventure in November. While Ragnarok is releasing on PlayStation consoles only this November, it would not be shocking if it eventually comes to PC, as many of Sony's first party titles have in recent years, including 2018's God of War.
