After God of War III released, developer Sony Santa Monica said they'd be taking a break from Kratos. But they're definitely working on a new project…what is it?
More evidence has arisen at Gamasutra , where we find a job listing for a Senior Level Designer. As expected, they're not telling us the game in question, but they do tell us it's an "unannounced new IP."
So given their expertise in the action genre, is it safe to assume we'll see something similar to God of War ? Well, maybe not. The Santa Monica studio is seeking someone who has "experience in designing or contributing to the development of an 'open world' game," so we're at a loss. They couldn't be making a wide open RPG like The Elder Scrolls , could they? Or is it more likely to be closer to inFamous or Grand Theft Auto ?
Well, either way, we hope they return to GoW at some point. It's one of Sony's signature franchises; it just can't go away.
