A new God of War could be closer than you think. Sony Santa Monica posted a job opening that appears to be heavily focused on its most popular franchise.
God of War (2018) and its sequel God of War Ragnarok were so successful that they have a TV series in development on Amazon. So it makes sense that a follow-up to the best-selling first-party PlayStation game would be a priority for Sony.
The possibility of a God of War sequel has had fans speculating since before Ragnarok was released. Now, a new piece of information has come to light that has once again got gamers talking about the next God of War game.
A Tweet from Sony Santa Monica lead combat designer Rob Meyer initially alerted fans. Meyer linked to a job ad posted on the Sony Santa Monica website for a full-time combat designer.
The key information that the community has cited as evidence for a potential God of War sequel is very specific criteria in the job posting. The ad specified: “Must have knowledge of God of War (2018) and God of War Ragnarok (2022) and be able to talk in depth about combat systems, mechanics, and enemies“.
Meyer’s own comments were less clear, only noting that there was “a few different combat desEsports Extrasvacanciesat Sony Santa Monica. Although Barlog’s next game has yet to be announced, fans believe it could be a new God of War with Kratos’ son Atreus as the lead. News of the job openings were posted on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours, where the community had their say.
