Another developer was forced to take a stand against aggressive fans after employees working on God Of War Ragnarok were targeted.

It’s understandable that many PlayStation owners are frustrated by the lack of news for God Of War Ragnarök, especially the release date, but what’s not easy to understand is why they then decide to take their frustration out on the people making the game.

Despite the fact that, as director Cory Barlog has tried to explain on numerous occasions, the developer has nothing to do with the flow of information about the game, fans have been harassing individual employees online — to the point that developer Santa Monica Studio had to issue a statement , which calls for calm.

“Our fans inspire us and we understand the passion and desire for more information. But this passion should not be poisonous, nor should it be at the expense of a person’s dignity,” the message reads. “Let’s celebrate our community by treating each other, every gamer and every developer, with respect.”

Given how many developers have been harassed on social media, this will only drive them away, and “fans” will find it far less easy to interact with the people developing their favorite titles.

This was demonstrated earlier this week when Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert simply shut down his website Grumpy Gamer after suffering endless abuse at Return To Monkey Island. The site is back now, but comments aren’t, and they’re likely to stay that way.

While it’s strange that Sony doesn’t simply announce a release date for God Of War Ragnarok, fans have been repeatedly assured that it hasn’t been delayed, so it won’t be anything unexpected regardless of the date.

The latest rumors suggest it will likely be released in November, with November 11th seeming the most likely date based on other games coming out around that time.
