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.
by the gods...
Why are you guys surprised? Santa Monica is now almost 150 ppl studio,that's like Isomniac or Zipper, two game in preproduction makes sense
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.
E3 announcement plzzz
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.
2 NEW GAMES!???? :| SANTA MONICA! Oh what are you going to do with us. We can't handle all this awesome. No wait, we CAN!! BRING IT ON!!!!!!! SONY SANTA MONICA FTW!!! Sony First Party Devs FTW!!!!!!!!!!
one of them is Twisted Metal
PLEASE let one of them be Heavenly Sword!!!
THIS IS MADNESS!!!!
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
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.
... 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.
ps3 just keeps on getting more exclusives..
for Santa Monica's upcoming games. I'm playing GOW3 now and it's amazing. thanks santa monica.
They've set a new standard.
I'm very excited about them making another game but two OMG! CANT WAIT!want to hear more about it
Heavenly sword 2 just do it santa monica and then something like a platformer or a horror game.
Yeah I agree. HS was my favorite action game until the GOW collection came out. I think it is still a better game than Darksiders, Bayonetta and Dantes Inferno even if it is on the short side of things.
PLEASE! Both would be day one purchases from me!
Let Sony Bend make Syphon filter they know the IP best and have made great games in the past Hoping for new IP's
Now i really want to know what 2 games are they working on new ip
i hope non of them for PSP....Pure PS3 power
I'd love to see them take on an open-world action RPG.
Heavenly sword 2 please.
They're venturing back in the NBA business. Think they said they'll skip '10 but would be back
with their San Diego Studios. The latter makes Sony's Sports titles.
mmm but 2 new game at the cost of god of war.make sure i cry like a baby at the end of gow3
Probably one Arc game, if not both.
I hope there going to be as good as GOW3.
this is good news, good for gamers, unlike other lazy devolpers
make a new driver game that will beat gta....it must come back!!!!!
It was made by Reflection Interactive, which are now part of Ubisoft, which also owns the IP.
HEY XBOTS WHERE ARE YOU??
A Heavenly Sword sequel made by Santa Monica studio on the GOW3 engine would be simply amazing.
way to get going, Santa Monica
I hope one is a new twisted metal game... and the other one could be another new IP. I'd love to see what they could do with an action adventure RPG like game. Think Demon's Souls/Monster Hunter/GoW with really nice graphics, a great combat system and hopefully a good strong story.
These guys need to take a break. They are working way too hard. They are going to tire themselves out and it could end up showing in their work. They're going to go mad if they keep this up...
