It’s either a release date or a date for when Sony will announce the release date (pic: Sony)
An incredibly vague but reliable leaker is hinting at a God Of War: Ragnarök update and perhaps a State of Play next week.
Despite a lack of any sort of update from Sony or Santa Monica Studio, there has been a lot of chatter surrounding God Of War: Ragnarök over the past month.
Conflicting reports of a possible delay have only made fans more desperate for an official statement, although one source claims that the game’s release date will be unveiled by the end of June and that it’ll come out in November.
Now, another reliable insider appears to be hinting at something God Of War: Ragnarök related, though their hint is vague enough that nobody can quite agree on what it means.
All they have shared is a GIF of protagonist Kratos nodding his head while the numbers 11110 flash on screen, in that order.
It can’t be a date since, no matter what format you apply it to, it would reference either 2010 or 2011. Instead, it’s theorised that the number is actually binary code.
Using a binary translator reveals that 11110 is the number 30 in the decimal system. The immediate assumption is that it’s referring to the 30th day of a month, though there’s no indication of which one.
June 30 is a Thursday though, and so to was the last State of Play from the start of the month, which focused primarily on PlayStation VR2.
It’s possible that this latest leak is for God Of War: Ragnarök’s release date, but that seems less likely since why wouldn’t they also share the exact month? They weren’t shy about giving away The Last Of Us’ full release date.
The more likely theory is that they’re teasing a reveal for June 30, although whether that’ll be a large scale State of Play or just something focused on God OF War is not clear – although another insider has already theorised a new event could be happening next week.

Fans have been chomping at the bit for another State of Play. The one from the beginning of June had its fair share of major announcements but was mostly focused on third party games. We’re long overdue one dedicated to Sony’s first party releases.
This year, however, Sony has had a few State of Plays that centred on only one game, such as Gran Turismo 7 and Hogwarts Legacy. So, it’s always possible that any late June presentation will discuss God Of War: Ragnarök and nothing more.
God Of War: Ragnarök is in development for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
