– Santa Monica Studio is recruiting (@SonySantaMonica) January 19, 2021
In 2018, we learned via ResetEra that Sony Santa Monica had created “a strategic, multi-phased, long-term studio plan covering two future projects” following God of the war, according to LinkedIn posts from studio staff.
Of course, one of those projects is the now revealed God of War: Ragnarok, which closed Sony’s PS5 showcase for September 2020. The second project is still a mystery, but the fact that the studio is now recruiting for key positions seems to suggest that it is actively moving forward.Prior to God of War in 2018, the studio was working on a new sci-fi IP which unfortunately was canceled. You can Check out some of the art of this project here.
In other God of War news, the 2018 title recently made our list of best ps5 games, given that it features an increase of 60 fps on the next-gen console.
