Bubs for funny Lol. All I know is if we end up with a Fallout open world style game with the qraphical quality of God of War I'm gonna be in VATS heaven.

He is joining Cory Balrogs team at Santa Monica for sure!

Santa Monica has three main triple AAA game developing teams: first we have Stigs team who are working on a new announced game, then we have the team that just finished making God of War: Ascension, and lastly we have the third team, headed by Cory Balrog.

Exciting times indeed at Santa Monica....

AnotherProGamer  +   307d ago
open world GoW won't be good

I don't why everyone wants every game to be open world
ZBlacktt  +   307d ago
Maybe because you think you are a Pro gamer and like things to always be the same.

How does a game designer and writer have anything to do with programming and coding?
thereapersson  +   307d ago
People Just sarcastically talking out of their ass on the Internet. You're questioning this?
KwietStorm  +   307d ago
It wasn't meant to be taken seriously.
No_Limit  +   307d ago

Bethesda isn't exactly know for good writing.
Hicken  +   307d ago
Perhaps, but I don't think SSM will suffer from is inclusion.
FRAKISTAN  +   307d ago
Sony Should make a Super RPG to rival the Elder Scrolls/Fallout franchises
TheOneEyedHound  +   307d ago
God if War RPG confirmed.
JunioRS101  +   307d ago
Since February 20th, I have suffered occasional, fleeting moments of doubt.

"Man, all of this PS4 news seems too good to be true... Could it really be the perfect gaming console for ME?"

Many and more announcements have passed by now, and I can confidently put my fears to rest.

PS4 IS Greatness Awaits.

i guess this is good in a more the merrier perspective but i don't really play bethesda games for the story now do i? except dark brotherhood in skyrim that quest line was great. now thinking about it a expanded game on the dark brotherhood would be golden.

I wonder what's going on at Sony Santa Monica?

Stig Asmussen - Creating a new IP since 2010, speculated to be a open world Sci-fi RPG.

Todd Papy - Just finished God of War: Ascension, probably in the early stages of his next game which could be God of War for the PlayStation Vita?

Cory Barlog - Forming a super team to make God of War IV bigger and better than ever? More open world but still very focused and cinematic. Kratos still the protagonist? New mythology, Egyptian or Norse? Or maybe he's also directing a new IP.

Exciting times ahead for the studio, 3 AAA games being developed internally and they're working with Ready at Dawn on 'The Order 1866' & The Chinese Room on 'Everybody's Gone to the Rapture' and more.
