The next God of War Ragnarok, one of the most anticipated PlayStation games of the year, isn’t due for release until November 9, but in the past 24 hours, video and social media sites have been flooded with clips of gamers playing the game. full game.
“The retailer sold the game almost TWO WEEKS before release. So disappointed,” Barlog said. “I’m sorry everyone, if you want to play a new game you have to avoid spoilers. It’s stupid of you to do that. It’s not like that for any of us. [Santa Monica Studio] I wanted things to go away.’
In a follow-up tweet, Barlog said he doesn’t believe in releasing physical video games as “just an installer.” He claims he made the statement out of anger at the Ragnarok leak script.
“To be clear, I’ve expressed my displeasure … I’m not advocating this at all. I don’t want a future as a player or a developer. I’m not upset. It’s terrible for the team. This whole ordeal is incredibly stressful for us. Everyone. It’s time for a mental health break,” he said.
It’s unclear which merchant sold Ragnarok first or why, but it happens all the time. With games the size and scope of Ragnarok, millions of discs are distributed worldwide to various retailers large and small. There is a better than zero chance that some of the millions of copies released to dealers will end up in the public’s hands prematurely for whatever reason.
