The current voice of Kratos—Christopher Judge—has claimed he was a major reason for God of War: Ragnarok being delayed into 2022.

In a quite heartwarming Twitter thread, the actor was thanking fans for their support of the series. He revealed “I need to be forthcoming. This has been approved by no one. To the beloved fandom, Ragnarok was delayed because of me. August 2019, I couldn’t walk. Had to have back surgery, both hips replaced and knee surgery. They waited for me too (sic) rehab.”

“No threats, no ‘Who do you think you are?’ Nothing but love and support,” he continued. “And Sony Santa Monica has never said a word about the delay and what caused it. Studios are assholes, but this company from top to bottom, should give us hope.” Judge further added that “Everyone involved in the GofW franchise puts their hearts and souls in every frame you see.”

Sony Santa Monica and PlayStation haven’t made an official comment on Judge’s claims at the time of writing, but studio head Cory Barlog responded to Judge’s thread saying he “would walk through a thousand fires for you, my friend“. The studio did tweet that it was pushing God of War: Ragnarok into 2022 back in June, but it’s unclear if this was the same delay that Judge is referring to.

Still, all’s well that ends well and God of War: Ragnarok looks like it’s shaping up very well indeed. The game lands on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 in 2022.
