Good news everyone!

So this means both teams at Santa Monica are working on new IP's. Maybe the new game has to do with the mysterious easter egg in Acension.

I do hope they give Kratos another run like 5 years from now.

Be Open World please! Only good things come from this option and add to that, Santa Monica, scifi, we are in for a treat.

I don't understand how Open World would be the most important decision for any game upfront. Certainly Minesweeper Open World would be awesome!

I think that especially SSM have a track record of very cinematic story driven games and open world always tends to water that down. It's kind of detrimental to a strong story-telling to have the player run around for hours on end doing whatever.

While I really love open worlds as in Assassin'S creed, i much prefer a really well crafted story and would say they should present it in whatever way they think works best.

It's an open world shooter with vehicular combat. Their job listings were asking for people with experience on that type of stuff.

Like I've mentioned before, apparently Stig (head of GOW3) is leading another team at Sony Santa Monica and creating a Sci-Fi game. Job descriptions have hinted at it having vehicles, mechs, and magic.

We may be looking at a new Sci-Fi Action RPG here. And since its by SSM we know it'll look beautiful. If it has been in development since 2010 after GOW3 was released, we may see this next year.

Edit: It's also hinted to be an open world game. :D

This needs to be PS4 only! I hope it's not cross gen or vita or PS3 only. I guess Yoshida did say all studios working on PS4 titles but could the order count as Sony Santa Monica's PS4 title?

This is why ~I'm not worried but actually encouraged by Sony's lack of launch games. There's going to be tonnes of multiplats at launch, they are spreading out the exclusives, they have so many studio I think games will just keep rolling in every few months.

don't worry,this is ps4 only

With Remote Play.

I disagree because a first party studio wouldn't gimp the PS4 game to equal the PS3 version. A first party studio would make full use of both systems. So I strongly disagree with the just for PS4.
black0o  +   276d ago
it's save to say PS4 only, since 1st studios doesn't do mult-plat like the 3rd-party dev

and SSM is known for AAA+ gameCom may hold the answers

Bracing for epic....

Doesn't mean that they're making a sci-fi game. Sadly.

I really enjoyed Battlestar Galactica...
Destrania  +   276d ago
It sounds like the Ascension team joined the other team (Stigs team) that has been working on this new title for quite a while. So now it's the entire SSM studio focused on this new title.
Darth Stewie  +   275d ago
If Santa Monica is making a scifi game I'm gonna lose it. Can't wait.
