Is Kratos going online?

Sony Santa Monica, the minds behind the God of War franchise, are hiring for a new game. Nothing out of the ordinary about that, sure, but details of the job listing bear some enticing points.

It seems the team is set to tackle an online mode in their next game, be it God of War or something else. One of the points of the position’s responsibilities reads: “Designing and implementing systems and tools to support networking needs (such as in-game communication, client-server, match-making, leaderboards).” In other words, online multiplayer.

Could this be the online debut for Kratos? There’s plenty of questions left swirling round our heads from the previous two God of War games. Maybe a sequel is in the works and just maybe it’s coming with some competitive options.
