Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Santa Monica Studio announced God of War Ragnarök has gone gold. This means principal development for the game is complete and what is left is to fix bugs that might be discovered.

"We are thrilled to announce that God of War Ragnarök has gone gold!" reads a tweet from Sony Santa Monica.

"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!"

God of War Ragnarök will launch for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on November 9.

Read details on the game below:

Kratos and Atreus embark on a mythic journey for answers and allies before Ragnarok arrives.

From Santa Monica Studio comes the sequel to the critically acclaimed God of War (2018). Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as they prepare for the prophesied battle that will end the world.

Together, Kratos and Atreus venture deep into the Nine Realms in search of answers as Asgardian forces prepare for war. Along the way they will explore stunning, mythical landscapes, gather allies from across the realms and face fearsome enemies in the form of Norse gods and monsters.

As the threat of Ragnarök grows ever closer, Kratos and Atreus find themselves choosing between the safety of their family and the safety of the realms…

Those Who Break Fate

Atreus seeks knowledge to help him understand the prophecy of “Loki” and what role he is to play in Ragnarök. Kratos must decide whether he will be chained by the fear of repeating his mistakes or break free of his past to be the father Atreus needs.

Weapons of War

The Leviathan Axe, Blades of Chaos and Guardian Shield return alongside a host of new abilities for both Kratos and Atreus. As they take on gods and monsters from across the Nine Realms, Kratos’ deadly Spartan skills will be tested like never before as he fights to protect his family.

Explore the Realms

Journey to dangerous and stunning landscapes while facing a wide variety of enemy creatures, monsters and Norse gods as Kratos and Atreus search for answers and allies.

Great news. This confirms no more delays. Regarding the support studios this is what I found.

PSS Creative Arts - internal support studio, seem to be increasing in size by a lot
Bluepoint - already owned by Sony, was mostly remake studio, but have started working on a new game
Valkyrie Entretainment - already owned by Sony have been only support and co-dev so far
Redhot - independent only support for art and concept so far (worked on several PS games)
Supper Alloy - Independent only support for motion capture and the like (worked on several PS games)
Jetpack Interactive - Independent provided support and ported previous GoW to PC
Supergenius - Independent support dev that also work on VR (GoW VR would be cool)
Original Force - Massive support company (on their list of customer MS, EA, tencent and NetEase are called but not Sony)

Some people downvote other people because they don't like said person. Obviously people should up/downvote based on the content of the post. However that is not how reality works.

That they are done and the cds can be printed. Version 1.0. But I bet they already work on patches.

PS5 already sells every single unit that is available to buy.

Only if Sony has the hardware to sell it. Either way, this game will push whatever hardware they have available.

They are sold out so far, so we won't be able to measure the impact on sales.

It can't in the short term. PS5's sell out essentially as soon as they are assmebled in the factory. It's production that is held back due to chip shortages.

You mean ps4 sales. Since people can't get a hold of ps5, I expect ps4's to double.
