One of the writers/developers working on God of War: Ragnarok has disclosed the gruesome death threats she has been receiving for the game’s release date delay.
Alanah Pearce is a writer/developer working for the Los Angeles based Santa Monica Studio. She is currently working on the studio’s next big project, God of War: Ragnarok. Fans have been eagerly waiting for the game’s arrival since it was first teased on PlayStation 5 Showcase.
The game was originally set to be released sometime during 2021. However, on June 2nd, the company announced that the game’s release has been pushed to 2022. The devs also announced that the game will be released on the PlayStation 4 as well.
However, many fans were upset with the news of the delay. Now, it seems that some of the fans decided to take out their frustration on the creators of the game, which includes writer/developer Alanah Pearce. She took it to Twitter to show the abuse she has been receiving. However, in a later tweet, Pearce explained that the threats do not bother her in the slightest.
Pearce explained that she understood the abuse that may come with the job. In a series of tweets, she explained:
“Anything people don’t like that happens at SMS in any capacity going forward, regardless of my involvement, will be considered to be my fault to a significant portion of the public.”
God of War Director Responds
Santa Monica Studio’s Creative Director Cory Barlog responded to the situation on Twitter. He called the overall situation “bullsh*t”. Moreover, he explained that the delay was his decision, so the frustration should be directed at him instead. He said:
“I made the calls. I did this. Don’t bother the team, they are all very good people doing great work. Every single human at the studio is there specifically because they are fucking EXCEPTIONAL at what they do. We are better because of them”
