God of War Ragnarök Spoilers Appear Online Following Retailers Selling It Early - News

Some retailers have started to sell God of War Ragnarök ahead of its release on November 9 for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.

Developer Santa Monica Studio has warned fans about spoilers appears online and has asked those who have gotten an early copy of the game not to post spoilers online, including gameplay, clips, and more.

"As we approach launch, it is important for our studio to preserve the experience of God of War Ragnarök for players who want to enjoy the game for the first time without spoilers," reads the tweet from Santa Monica Studio.

"We ask that you please be considerate of the many fans who do not want to accidentally see clips, gameplay, or narrative spoilers and avoid sharing them wider.

"We are doing our best to limit the exposure of unsanctioned footage and screenshots, but the reality is that we cannot catch everything.

"For those of you who do not want to risk seeing anything before launch, we strongly advise that you mute any keywords or hashtags associated with the game until release day.

"We appreciate the support you’ve shown us more than we can say. We can assure you it will be worth the wait to experience the game yourself when it is released in less than two weeks on November 9th."

Sony Santa Monica creative director Cory Barlog has expressed his dissatisfaction with retailers selling the game nearly two weeks early.

"A retailer selling the game nearly TWO WEEKS before release. Just so disappointing," said Barlog.

"Sorry to everyone that you have to dodge the spoilers if you want to play the game fresh. Completely fucking stupid you have to do this. This is not at all how any of us at [Sony Santa Monica] wanted things to go."

Ahhh so disappointing,

Azzholes just can't wait!
Retailers should be blamed and be much more strict with releasing products!

They should be fined or banned from selling games for a period of time

They just need to make the disc a key to download the software via the store. If they do that the disc doesn't work until the game is released. Cary Barlog also said he now understands why Devs do this. He should have done this himself because the game getting leaked before launch was very predictable.

This certaibly would be a solution. But none I would be satisfied with. I want to own the game. If the disc is not carrying it, everybody is just digital. And I am not alone in not wanting that given how many people go for the 100 $ more expensive disc drive ps5. And there are a lot of people with bad or no internet connection.

And I think it is not fair that everybody else needs to swallow that pill just because certain few asshats can't behave. Better oversight and control of who sells what would be great. As would be your suggestion from above of shipping the discs to stores later. And much higher fines would be great aswell.

This is normal now, every game is leaked early mainly bcuz of retailers giving it away. I hate to say this but if I was the company, I would delay physical versions of the game and ship them to retailers on the day of the release at this point.

It's their own fault for shipping to early. You know shops do whatever it takes to compete and selling earlier than supposed is part of that. Just make sure the game arrives two or three days before launch instead of two to 3 weeks.
