New job announcements would have confirmed that Santa Monica Studio, creators of God of War, would be working on a new IP with a Fantasy themed.
God of War is certainly one of the most important IPs of Sony, and although SIE Santa Monica Studio is currently working on the development of the highly anticipated title of God of War Ragnarok (delving into the father and son relationship between Kratos and Atreus), it would seem that the team of California development has other projects in the pipeline.
According to what emerged from some new job advertisements published by the software house, Santa Monica Studio would be looking for different professionals (including a concept artist) for the realization of a title not yet announced. Furthermore, according to the information reported by the opportunity, it would seem that the new IP of the creators of God of War may have a fantasy setting.
Although the nature of the new IP is suggested several times by the position linked to the search for a new Senior Character Concept Artist, the latter must deal not only with the rules of the game world, but also with the development of characters, props, and creatures realistic and credible for the setting of the new adventure by Santa Monica Studio.
At the moment it is not clear if the job announcement refers to a brand new IP, or if the game not yet announced by the internal PlayStation team refers to one of the already consolidated franchises of the Californian software house, given that in recent weeks, the Japanese giant’s desire has emerged (thanks to the much-discussed report by Jason Schreier) to focus more and more on profitable and renowned franchises.
Waiting to learn more about the story, we remind you that God of War Ragnarok (title not yet final) should debut by the end of 2021 on PlayStation 5, even if no official release date has been announced for now (much less whether it will be exclusive to Sony’s new flagship or also available on PS4).
