New God of War Title Officially In The Works

Though the announcement did not come during Sony’s actual PlayStation Experience live event earlier today, Santa Monica Studio’s Creative Director Cory Barlog confirmed that development is underway while answering questions at a God of War retrospective.

Barlog, when pressed further, did not reveal any details about the game but did assert that it is definitely not a sequel, like God of War: Ascension was. Sony’s Scott Rohde, earlier in the year, eluded to this next title being a “reboot” of sorts after Santa Monica suffered a significant round of layoffs. 

Barlog confirmed that him and his team hopes to share more only within “the next year or two.” Development is most likely in its early stages, hence why this announcement wasn’t made during the live event. Also, when asked whether or not Kratos will be returning as the main protagonist, Barlog was hesitant to answer.

Sony Santa Monica was supposedly working on an unannounced new IP, alongside Barlog’s God of War title, until the layoffs were made and the project was canceled.
