I'm saying it right now not only because I think so but because, for the sake of the game, I hope so.

3 years of development - 1 of them with Covid around - won't be enough for such a big title. I believe Sony already has enough big titles scheduled for 2021 in order to have GOW pushed back to 2022 and being properly optimized.

There's also chances that Microsoft's big guns will start rolling from 2022 and beyond , so it doesn't really make sense to me to rush such an important game (the most important PS IP IMO).

So yeah, expect this game to be delayed to 2022, and be relieved about it.

I'm not counting on it to release in 2021, I hope they take their time and release it when it's ready.

I still haven't played the first game. I guess I should do that before this releases.

I think it will make 2021 but not for a good reason. I think it will be a cross gen game with the same engine. It will be a Miles Morales level game.
I'm sure I saw news that Sony wasn't going to do cross gen so that devs could go for wow factor in games that weren't hamstrung. Then, full 180.

Didn't even know a new GoW was in the works? Haven't played the last, am hoping for a PS5 remaster.

The last Sony trailer showing upcoming games didn't have GOW:R in it. That's why I think it'll hit 2022. Plus they're going to need titles to fill that year out with and keep consoles selling. I wouldn't be mad though I'm very eager to continue the story and kick ass. This year is stacked if nothing else slips into 2022.

I'm fine with it being cross gen as long as the PS5 version feels current gen (PS5 gen). And it doesn't bother me much if it's released 2022, I have lots of games I wanna play this year. And it's better to release it when it's finished, imo.
