Sadly, it seems that isn't true. God of War (2018) director and God of War Ragnarok producer outright denied rumors that the game will be getting some big update on June 30th. He also went on to squash speculation that the game has been delayed again, so even though there's no concrete release date, fans can rest assured knowing it is still on track to release in 2022. Barlog also talked about the frustration fans have with the lack of news and stated that the team will bring news as soon as they possibly can, but as of right now, there is nothing to share.

Whether something will happen before the end of the summer remains to be seen, but this also isn't a new strategy for this franchise. God of War (2018) was also subjected to long periods of silence before a big marketing push and release date announcement just 3 – 4 months before the game actually launched. With that said, it wouldn't be surprising if the team is opting for a shorter marketing burst so that it can both maintain excitement and also retain as many secrets for the game's story as possible.
