Sony Santa Monica - the developers of God of War - have posted up three new job listing's in search of personnel for their next big project.
Looking forward to seeing what it is :) I fancy them taking a break from God of War, and creating a new IP, then heading back to the franchise in 3 or 4 years time...
if its new gow i hope its about kratos going to eden and clearing it up of monsters to find his daughter/ wife, or if its a new ip i hope its full of gore and epicness
I'm pretty sure it will be a new IP I don't see much else they could do with God of War unless they explore other characters. I'm HOPING it is a new IP as well Can't wait to see what they have in store even though I imagine it will be another 2-3 years til we see it =\
Heavenly Sword 2. I doubt it though
Yeah i want a new ip and it will most likely have multiplayer and i wonder what crazy ideas they would do with multiplayer
;-; I hope they are hiring in 6 years.
F new IP, I want more God of War.
I'd like to contribute my mad photoshop skills to the team at Sony Santa Monica. I made this out of boredom http://farm5.static.flickr....
Can't wait to see what they come up with.
Maybe they can make a new hack and slash game that will enable move. I know they can do it. That would be awesome.
Heavy Rain 2, lol
Their next game will be an adventure zelda like game probably.
and so it begins another AAA PS3 exclusive
PS3 exclusives just never ends...
can't wait to see what the new project is. Santa Monica is truly talented.
Yeeeeeeeeehaaa! Another God of War probably. Lame. Just end a series when it's time to end for once.
How can anyone disagree with me here? Do you people honestly still want even more God of War? Seriously? Get over it. It's played its hand. Let it ride. And I can think of a slew of other franchises in the same boat, if not worse. Final Fantasy Street Fighter Tomb Raider Splinter Cell Metal Gear Resident Evil Silent Hill Madden & the list goes on and on. Games, all of them, that add nothing new or revolutionary to the mix of their follow ups. Same gameplay, different levels and story. Yawn.
You forgot to add Halo and Call of Duty.
yes, and Halo and Cod and Gta. Those too.
@Baltis Where is the GoW announcement? SSM could perfectly be working on another IP. Your list is missing some titles from Nintendo btw.
If there is any series that needs to end... It's Mario and Zelda. They've been done to death.
nintendo then. Lol. They have had the same IPS for over 20 years. God of War could still be done and keep quite fresh focusing on a new character. I think Kratos story is good and done. Bring on some norse mythology. I want to smash thors head with his own hammer.
New IP. Here's proof (kinda): http://www.youtube.com/watc... But for the record, there are a billion ways to keep GoW fresh. How about camera control, different setting, different protagonist? God of War is all about 3 things: 1. Creating an epic atmosphere with A) a simple well-paced story that marginalizes tales of grandeur, and B) Excellent level design and high quality environmental art 2. The most literal use of the term Anti-hero in videogame history. 3 .Fast-paced hack-n-slash gameplay with a HUGE emphasis on offense. More so than any other game. That doesn't necessarily mean it has to be set in Greek Mythology, with Kratos swinging the blades of chaos, although to be honest, I'm not too sick of that either.
they probably fired the guys that made the labyrinth(half serious)....also they should really look into hiring another storywriter(100% serious)
cant wait, hope its a new IP. Also wouldn't mind if they did a new type of game , like an rpg perhaps. Whatever it is, best of luck Sony Santa Monica. PS - Every1 tell your friends to go see "Inception", now that looks BADASS
so dope if they made a rpg.
hope it's not god of war something new i hope
Even though I wish there's more GOW (WITH KRATOS)... I would definitely love to see what new IP they can bring. After GOW3 epicness, I can only dream what sh*t they can come up with next.
I can't wait for God of War 4
LOVE to see a game based in modern time and the gods rise up again and are pissed at the humans for forgeting about them and a new hero is chosen to fight against them, guns of course would be used, but imagine the combat sony santa monica could do with guns XD
i felt like vomiting when i read that
I wanna see how the GOWIII engine stacks up implementing the game to an open-world setting. -End statement
It IS possible to get the same graphical quality in an open world, I bet. Infamous 2 looks almost like Uncharted 2 and when the latter came out everyone said that level of graphic fidelity could never be done open-world in this generation. Stig has already said they only used around 60% of the PS3's capability, but I bet 218 GFLOPS and 8 different places you could put your code could potentially have every character in an open world game looking just as good as Kratos if someone was clever enough to do it. Look at GT5 and Crysis 2 (PS3 version) - 1080p at 60 FPS in 3D, with that level of graphical quality? That would have sounded absolutely impossible a month before E3.
Would be nice if this was Heavenly Sword 2.
That's what I'm hoping for.... don't think they'll do it though :-(.
I'm hoping for a new IP. But I wouldn't mind seeing GoWIV, can we get a space game (open world game) with hack-slash elements?
I hope do go with david jaffes ending and let kratos do norse mythology
meybe its not god of war but it will be a new hack n slash with fixed camera.man i cant wait to see the graphics this time they only used 60 percent of ps3 power but this time they will use 100 percent and it will be AWESOMEEEEEE
As much as I love God of War, I would like to see what these guys can do with a new IP. Either way, I'm certain it will be excellent.
all these high quality ps3 exclusives back to back is killing my wallet(and eyesight lol).
