God of War: Ascension is coming, but developer Sony Santa Monica has something else in the works, too…
According to a Gamasutra job listing , the talented team is seeking a senior combat designer for a currently unannounced new IP.
The successful applicant will have experience working on first- and third-person shooters, and it would also help if they've dealt with vehicle combat as well. This person must also see "boss designs through from concept to execution" and we catch the word "magic" in there, too. So…uh…a combination of God of War , Uncharted , and Twisted Metal ? Or should we expect something like Bioshock – which is part shooter, part RPG – only with the inclusion of vehicles? Whatever it is, color us excited; these guys are plenty capable and the new project sounds awfully ambitious.
Ambition is good . Yes, you can say we already have too many shooters but really, if it's something like Bioshock or The Last Of Us , only even more inventive and creative (if that's humanly possible), would you really be disappointed? We wouldn't.
