For Santa Monica, There's No Rest After God Of War III, Two New Games In The Works

You'd think after 3 long years of laboring tirelessly to release one of the best gaming experiences ever created, that God of War III devs would take a break. They're not; in fact Sony Santa Monica already has two projects in the works.

Santa Monica Only Does EPIC Games, so TWO Games by Them is Pure WIN

"“One with a kind-of long-range, ‘Here’s what we’re gonna do years down the road’, and then another one that’s, ‘Here’s what we’re gonna do as the very next project’.” - does it mean PSN + big project or what?

if one of those games was Kinetica 2 it would be awesome.

Anything SM is working on, something is granted, is gonna set the graphical bar yet again.

Very excited. While so many UC2 fans and Gow haters were arguing nothing couldnt beat Uc2 or GoW3 was meant to be GoW2 HD, I knew SM was about to deliver the best looking game on any console. Great hopes for anything they have in the works.

hazeblaze3173d ago

PLEASE let one of them be Heavenly Sword!!!

I hope they make one game a lot like GOW (With a more complex combat system, as much as I enjoy the GOW one) and something else that is completely different. And using similar technology.

Anyone watch Rome? What if SM flipped it and did a spinoff with you playing some crazy Humans instead. Like Titus Pullo in the series Rome.

jesus christ santa monica, take a break. u act like what you've done was no big deal. trust me, it is. i mean u could work on dlc or something but 2 whole new games? it's called sleep, u've all earned it

FamilyGuy3173d ago

yeah, that many people can't be expected to just be siting around instead of working on their next big thing/s.

Could you imagine being on the GOW3 team? I'd say it would be something to be proud of, to be able to say you had a part in a game like that is huge.

after watching that GoW3 Aphrodite vids last 2 days, that phrase still sounds so erotic! seriously, I need my GoW3 fix now! and I think I might purposely screw up (pun intended?) the button mashing during that scene! LOL!

back on topic, 2 more games for SM studio? HELLZ YEAH!

welcome the change that comes from this tremendous studio. No rest for the wicked.

deafwing3173d ago

... they increased their studio size (for GOWIII) but Game Studios have some of the highest Turn-Over Rates in the game working world; and that's a bad thing.

Simply put, they'll hire/fire according to their "current" and most pressing needs; they tend to shrink, or dare I say it, lay off the majority of their staff, when they don't need them.

Sony SMS is perhaps an exception to this rule due to their success - but it will be continued success in whatever they build for gamers that will keep their numbers and game creating abilities high.
