What is Sony Santa Monica working on exactly?
With the arrival of PS5 at the end of 2020, many players are already wondering about the exclusive PlayStation licenses in which Sony studios already work for their return. Horizon, Uncharted, Infamous and without a doubt, God of War, who came back in style with his new adventure for PS4. Right now, the God of War license is one of the mainstays of the PlayStation ecosystem and it is not much risk to anticipate that we will see a new delivery on PS5.
Well, you can bet that Sony Santa Monica has something at hand right now. If a few months ago Cory Barlog (director of God of War for PS4) already assured that would like to work on a new God of War focused on the story between Kratos and Faye, now another member of the study leaves us a clue.
Kim Newman, Narrative Animator at SCE Manta Monica, recently shared a photo dressed in a motion capture suit, along with the phrase "It feels good to be back in the suit", which implies that progress is being made on a new project without announcing. Will the Californian studio be working on a continuation of the last God of War for the new PS5?
Whether or not it is a new God of War, by deadlines, it seems that the new exclusive project of Sony Santa Monica would not reach PS4. The latest rumors suggest that the first exclusive PS5 will not be compatible with PS4, so the generational jump would be mandatory if we want to enjoy them. Microsoft for its part has already confirmed that in the first year or two of Xbox Series X life, the exclusives will be playable on Xbox One.
