Interesting rumors and moves come just a few hours before this year’s Summer Game Fest keynote: The Last of Us Part 1 (TLOU remake) could be released as early as September, and Sony may have pushed God of War Ragnarok to Q4 2022 as a result.
These are all interpretations from two very specific sources. One of them is a Twitter account created just this month (@https://twitter.com/insider_wtf) with only 3 tweets. But all of them are unusually reliable these days.
In the first one, this user leaked in great detail last week’s Sony State of Play, where it was announced, among other things, the FF XVI release date or the port of Marvel Spiderman to PC.
Then, the same account tweeted, just two days ago, simply “Overdose” before Tom Henderson detailed Kojima’s supposed new horror video game.
Now, the same account has tweeted “PART 1 – 02.09.2022“, which could very well refer to the much talked about remake of The Last of Us. According to his tweet, the game would be released this September this year for console and PC, if the icons in the tweet are anything to go by.
But then there’s the information that Playstation Game Sizes tweeted a few hours ago: God of War Ragnarok has changed its placeholder date from September 30 to December 31.
This would make sense if we add the TLOU remake information, as Sony might want to avoid releasing two first-party games so close together in the same quarter.
If this information is true, it would make sense to release the TLOU remake in September and release God of War Ragnarok at the end of the year, on the usual dates for big releases like November or Christmas.
