Sony Santa Monica to show four unannounced titles at E3

Monday, 6th June 2011 11:45 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Sony’s Santa Monica studio is set to show four unannounced titles at E3 this week, according to tech boss Tim Moss.

He said in a tweet: “#SMStudio has 8 games from our talented external teams at E3 this year. A shit load of devs worked really hard the last few weeks.

And in reply to a question, he answered what games will be shown: “[Eat, Sleep, Play's] Twisted Metal, [Lightbox's] Starhawk, Sound Shapes, [thatgamecompany's] Journey + 4 others that are not yet announced.”

It’s unknown if all or some of these unannounced titles are collaborations or internally made projects at Santa Monica.

Earlier this morning, Forbes reported that a new “3D” God of War title will be announce during the Sony presser tomorrow morning.

And at GDC last year, product development manager John Hight said it was working on two small projects.

Sony’s E3 presser takes place from 1.00am BST tomorrow. Thanks, Gekidami.

    Basically it’s Heavenly Sword 2, probably GETAWAY and something else.

    this first party dev-publisher is on crack and thats GOOD.

    Wtf are you smoking. Heavenly Sword was developed by Ninja Theory (now doing DMC), Getaway was London Studio (now doing Singstar etc). Santa Monica wouldn’t just take over two dead franchises.

    So two PSN games, a new God of War, and something else.

    Cracking.

    @3, it is you who is smoking. Santa Monica is not developing these games. They are like a publisher.

    Read: And in reply to a question, he answered what games will be shown: “[Eat, Sleep, Play's] Twisted Metal, [Lightbox's] Starhawk, Sound Shapes, [thatgamecompany's] Journey + 4 others that are not yet announced.”

    these 4 games are watched by Santa Monica team. Another 4 will be presented at E3.

    Yeah guy, Santa Monica acts as a, erm, semi-publisher (?), for Sony.

    The development studio that makes God of War is still called Santa Monica, but they have a ton of studios underneath them, that report in, and that SM aid.

    Heavenly Sword 2 is possible, its rumoured to be at E3, after all. Not much chance on Getaway though. Thats made by a Sony first party studio, they dont need Santa Monica. unless of course Sonys got a third party to make it. Which is possible, i guess.

    BTW, i’d expect at least one of these to be a NGP game.

    @6, exactly. They are a semi-publisher that looks at the development in United States Of america aka Sony Computer entertainment America (first-second parties)

    My guesses would be: Sorcery, new PixelJunk title, God Of War and…
