Cory Barlog, who is one letter away from an awesome last name, recently rejoined Sony Santa Monica after many years away, and upon his return, he let out his some information about the project he is currently working on.
"What am I working on, you ask? Good question. Sadly, I cannot tell you…yet. But I can say that it is freaking huge, and it will live up to the standards that I helped establish here at SMS. We’re putting together a team as I type this, an Ocean’s 11 kind of thing. We are searching the world high and low for the best of the BEST to come and be on the ground floor of this endeavor." Hell. Yes. I surmise that we can possibly expect two SSM games in a short amount of time, one in March 2015 (I'm thinking GOW), the other in 2016. I love it when studios have more than one team, which allows them to do more projects at once. Two teams for GG (one of which is working on their new PS4 IP); two teams for ND (one working on TLOU DLC + an eventual PS4 game, the other knee-deep in PS4 development (I'd like a new IP...Savage Starlight?); three teams for SSM (IIRC); who knows how many teams at SJ... I could go on. Lots and lots of games to be played in the coming years.
Oh man. Savage Starlight, please Naughty Dog. But first... Uncharted 4. I like the way Sony has decided to split their teams. It means we get sequels to God of War, Killzone, Uncharted, but also new IPs to let them branch off and grow in other areas. Just like The Last of Us provided.
Stig's team at SSM has been working on a new IP since GOW3. It will probably come out next year and if it doesn't then it must be a huge game for it to have such a long development cycle.
I cannot wait to see what Santa Monica's New IP will be, they are an extremely talented studio and if God of War is any indication of the quality of the title, I think we can expect another incredible Playstation exclusive.
Director of the best God of War (2) working on something that is "freaking huge", exclusively for PS4. The good news won't stop.
God of War 3 was the best God of War. God of War 2 is the 2nd best. Can't wait to find out what it is.
Wrong. God of War 3 definitely had the bigger scale boss fights (Poseidon is easily the best boss in God of War) but storywise, and overall consistency wise, God of War 2 eats it.
i agree with enemy on this one GOW2 was the best GOW2 GOW3 GOW GOS GOW GOW SOO GOW A
god of war 4 open world rpg element and kratos is back in action
OW RPG!! .. i cant see kratos helping and taking on Qu from ppl or buying stuff from others
Nice =) looking forward to it.
Can't wait .
Barlog, Pappy and Stig. Three Kings of SSM with awesome last name. Hnnnng.
I try not to read articles like these, waiting for the ps4 is hard as it is. Articles like these just make it even harder.
