Sony’s God of War studio is seeking senior staff for a ‘new unannounced game’
“Join us as we embark on a new journey”
Sony Interactive Entertainment‘s Santa Monica Studio looks to be ramping up its recruitment efforts for a yet to be revealed game.
The studio said in January that it was seeking an art director “for the development of a new unannounced title”, suggesting the company could be working on a second project alongside the next God of War.
It currently has 33 open positions, with a number of senior roles also focused on development of the “unannounced” game.
They include animation director, gameplay design director, senior gameplay designer, lead gameplay programmer, senior narrative designer, lead tools programmer and senior level designer.
“If you love collaborating with talented developers to create defining games, join us as we embark on a new journey,” reads a line featured in a number of the job ads.
Santa Monica Studio is currently working on God of War Ragnarök, the follow-up to 2018’s PS4 exclusive God of War.
The sequel was announced via a brief teaser last year for release on PS5 in 2021, although nothing more has been heard of the project since.
SIE Worldwide Studios boss Hermen Hulst recently named God of War Ragnarök his most anticipated game.
“To see and hear the reaction to that tiny glimpse we unveiled at the PlayStation Showcase last September was very exciting,” said Hulst, who was formerly managing director of Horizon Zero Dawn studio Guerrilla Games. “I can’t wait for people to see what Santa Monica is making.”
Last November, PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan refused to comment on whether God of War Ragnarök will be released for PS4 as well as PS5.
