Twitter user @BenjiSales compiled some very interesting data about God of War Ragnarok presence on social media. The discussion of the impressive engagement numbers across multiple social media led to speculation about the opening week of Ragnarok.

The game has a very real chance to break the 3-day sales numbers record of a PlayStation studio game, currently held by The Last of Us Part 2 at over 4 million copies.

The release date for God of War Ragnarok was confirmed by Sony Interactive Entertainment as of Wednesday. God of War Ragnarok is set for a release date of November 9, 2022. The announcement has received over 155,280 likes on the official PlayStation Twitter account. The “Father and Son” Cinematic Trailer that went live alongside it already received 2,9 million views within 22 hours.

The announcement also received a million likes on Instagram in just 17 hours. This is a milestone that the PlayStation Instagram account or any company Instagram doesn’t often achieve, let alone this quickly!

God of War Ragnarok was originally scheduled for release in 2021, but last June Santa Monica Studio said it had been delayed to 2022 to help the studio deliver “a top-quality game while maintaining the safety and wellbeing” of its team.

The combined number of PS4 and PS5 consoles in the hand of the players increased since The Last of Us Part II release. And Ragnarok is currently Sony’s most anticipated game by far. Thus, it seems that everything is in the cards for Ragnarok to overtake the 3-day record and continue to claim God of War’s record of overall copies sold.

After all God of War Ragnarok has far more buzz and social media presence surrounding it than God of War 2018 had, which sold 3.1 million copies in three days and continued to sell massive 19,5 million copies.
