Gran Turismo 7 may not be Sony’s only loud lag. Jim Ryan mentions the schedule in a recent interview, but God of War Ragnarok was not among the upcoming games. Jason Schreier replied to the message.
Jim Ryan was asked about the game schedule for 2021 and the PlayStation boss only mentioned three certainty:
“Yes, we have a pretty good feeling about Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Horizon Forbidden West. And you know, there are two approaches to this: you can either hold off the date and release the game no matter what the quality is, or you can post it when it’s finished. We have always chosen the latter approach. There have been a few high-profile instances of publishers trying the former.
The head of PlayStation confirmed that the pandemic strongly influenced the work of development teams, and Sony wants to provide the creators with enough time for the polished productions to appear on the market. Jim Ryan added that uploading items to the market without paying attention to quality doesn’t work in the best of times, and when we add the current world situation to it, publishers must respect the fact and give creators time to work.
The lack of God of War Ragnarok in the schedule for 2021 was very clearly commented on by Jason Schreier – in his opinion, apparently there is no chance for the premiere of this game in the coming months.
