God of War PSP developer making new IP

Ready at Dawn, developers of the God of War games for the PSP, have announced that they are working on a new story-driven action adventure game based on an original intellectual property.

Ru Weerasuriya, co-founder of RAD and an ex-Blizzard employee, told Eurogamer that they’re “not going to go off and make an open-world, or an MMO, like everybody expects ex-Blizzard people to do”. He adds, “I love playing story driven games. I love movies. I love things that involve me from start to end and give me a complete experience.”

As for which platform the game will be on: “I can tell you it’s going to be whatever platform our engine runs on,” he said. “Right now our engine runs on pretty much anything that’s available out there.” Will that platform be the PSP? According to Weerasuriya, the upcoming God of War: Ghost of Sparta is “our last PSP game”.

But does that mean the game could still be released on PSP2? Or will it hit the big leagues and head to the PS3? Expect a reveal “soon”.
