A job listing has suggested that God of War developer Santa Monica Studio is working on a new project i.e. not the already-announced GoW sequel which fans are calling Ragnarok.
The job listing was shared by Santa Monica Studio on Twitter. The post advertises a new role as an Art Director for a currently “unannounced title.” This likely rules out the God of War game set to release this year.
“We are seeking an experienced Art Director for the development of a new unannounced title!” says the Twitter post.
“We are seeking an experienced Art Director for the development of a new unannounced title! Do you love collaborating to build genre-defining games? Join us as we embark on a new journey!” reads a line in the job description.
The position of Art Director asks for a veteran of the industry with at least “10 years of recent experience developing real-time 3D video game artwork.”
So what exactly is this unannounced title? Well, we can likely rule out the God of War game dubbed “Ragnarok.” Unless the job listing is using the term “unannounced” to refer to the game’s title, which doesn’t seem likely. So is Santa Monica working on a new IP?
With the continued rise of digital card deck building games, I’m kinda hoping that the unannounced title might be based upon God of War: The Card Game, from board game developers CMON.
Back in November of 2020, video games personality Alanah Pearce left her position at Rooster Teeth and joined Santa Monica on an “undisclosed project”. While we assumed this was probably still Ragnarok in some form, that might not be the case.
It could be that Pearce will be working on this “unannounced title” that the position of Art Director is referring to.
What do you hope that this unannounced title will be? Would you like to see a God of War card game, or perhaps remakes of the original games? Let us know across our social media channels.
