The continuation of the excellent God of War released in 2018 on PS4 should indeed be called God of War: Ragnarök and only released on PS5. In an investor report, Sony did mention this name, in addition to using a logo made by a fan.
If the situation is still unclear for the moment, Sony has more or less confirmed the name and the logo of the next game God of War on PlayStation 5. The one that we call soberly for the moment God of War 2 would be called probably well and truly God of War: Ragnarök. Likewise, the Japanese firm used a logo made by a fan to illustrate the upcoming game from Santa Monica Studios.
God of War 2 will be called Ragnarök, towards a release on PS5 only?
Sony has multiplied the announcements during its Investor Day which took place from May 26 to 27, 2021. The Japanese firm notably announced the release of the video game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End on Windows PC, without giving a precise release date. The firm also took the opportunity to compare the launch library of the PS4 with the PS5, estimating that that of the next-gen console is ” the best game line-up after launch ».
God of War 2 was announced by a teaser in September 2020 during a PlayStation conference. It had also been voted “most anticipated game” at the 2020 Golden Joystick Awards. In a list where appear Returnal and Resident Evil Village, Sony clearly quotes the title ” God of War: Ragnarök In the list of upcoming games for PS5. Would it be the final title of the game?

Because if its title was not yet official – the teaser released by Sony in 2020 did not mention the title of the game, simply ” Ragnarök is coming – its use in this report now leaves room for doubt. Especially since if we believe a simple reverse search on Google Images, the logo is not official since it is the creation of a fan.
Finally and if the rumor was of a simultaneous release on PS4, it seems that God of War 2 will not be available on the old Sony console. Indeed, the report dedicated to investors does not mention the future title of Santa Monica Studios in the upcoming cross-gen releases on PS4.
