PC players may have only recently been able to play the 2018 God of War, but follow-up God of War Ragnarök has already been released for PS4 and PS5 to great critical acclaim.


Given that the 2018 reboot ends on a bit of a cliffhanger, PC users will surely be hoping that Ragnarök comes to the platform also - and chances are good.

In a surprise move, Sony has been committed to releasing several of its biggest PS4 games on PC in recent years, with the likes of Days Gone, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Uncharted and the two Spider-Man games now available on Steam.

The already impressive-looking games get additional features such as upgraded visuals, DLSS implementation and more customisation on PC, so Ragnarök will likely look even more stunning once it gets ported.

When exactly Ragnarök will appear on the platform is quite the question, however, as we're yet to receive an official release date - but here's when we think God of War Ragnarök will come out on PC.

When will God of War Ragnarök come out on PC?

We’re not expecting God of War Ragnarök to release on PC for quite some time. Based on how long it has taken for various PlayStation games to be ported to PC, however, we can make some guesses. Don’t expect it to release before a year has gone by, at least.

Speaking to Julien Chièze on YouTube (thanks VGC), PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst explained that "going forward we’ll see at least a year between releases on PlayStation and on the PC platform, possibly with the exception of live service games." Based on this, we’re not expecting to see God of War Ragnarök to release on PC until 9th November 2023 at the earliest.

Considering it took around four years for the 2018 God of War title to release on PC, eventually finding its way onto the platform on 14th January 2022, though, we could be looking at a longer wait than just a year. We would be surprised if it took as long as the original game to port, however.

Since the start of 2022, several PlayStation games have made their way onto PC. Sony appears to be ramping up production in porting its games to the platform, which we can assume means the ports are proving popular. By the end of the year, Sony will have released five of its games on PC in 2022 alone.

We’d wager based on all of the evidence that we have found that God of War Ragnarök should release on PC sometime in 2024, more likely than not in the second half of the year. This will ensure the game has at least 18 months as a console exclusive and give the development team time to port the mighty game onto PC. Of course, we’ll update this page with an actual PC release date for God of War Ragnarök if one is ever announced.
