Sony’s God of War Studio Has ‘A Lot of Different Things’ In the Works

By | November 16, 2022

Sony’s Santa Monica Studio may have just shipped God of War: Ragnarok but it seemingly has no plans to slow down thanks to multiple projects in the works.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Santa Monica’s creative director Cory Barlog said the studio is currently “spread out on a lot of different things,” presumably including the project he moved to after leaving God of War.

It’s unclear exactly what these projects are, however, as Barlog refused to give anything away. Santa Monica also has an external development team that publishes third party games (like Hohokum and Twisted Metal) so these could also be included in the projects mentioned..

That being said, Santa Monica has over 200 employees, and though the majority of these were likely working on Ragnarok, the long-awaited sequel was completed around a month ahead of its launch on November 9.

Given this was only last week, Santa Monica is yet to announce what it’s working on next, but it’s likely to have at least one or two major game projects in the works.

One such game could be the next God of War, though Santa Monica has been very clear that the Norse saga that began in 2018’s iteration has concluded with Ragnarok.

In our 10/10 review, IGN said: “God of War: Ragnarok is an almighty achievement and creates a new high that makes many of its peers look mortal by comparison.”
