It certainly sounds like Sony Santa Monica, the team behind the God of War series, is changing things up for their next game; following job listing for multiplayer-experienced staff the team is now looking for devs who have worked with shooters and open-world games.
The studio is searching for (as revealed by Supperannuation) a senior combat designer with experience on first and/or third-person shooters along with vehicle combat. That sounds pretty un-Kratos to us, unless the Ghost of Sparta is going all Modern Warfare in his new game. A level designer is also listed, who must have open-world credits. Both listings make mention of the team’s next game.
With rumours of God of War IV running round the web, we’re excited to see what Santa Monica has up its sleeve for E3.
