When one thinks of Sony Santa Monica the first thing that springs to mind is Kratos’ epic God of War adventures. It looks like the studio is taking a step away from that franchise, at least for the time being, with a couple of new job listings outing some interesting information.
Firstly the team are looking for someone who ideally has experience working with, developing or designing for a 1st and/or 3rd person shooter. They then cite that experience working with, developing or designing vehicle combat in a game is a plus point.
A second job listing states that experience in designing or contributing to the development of an “open world” game is a plus. By the sounds of it this new project is a massive leap from God of War.
Unless Kratos is going ‘street’.
