Sony’s Santa Monica studio looks to be very busy.
Sony Santa Monica, the studio behind PlayStation exclusive series God of War, has revealed that it’s starting work on a new, unannounced game. The studio revealed the news on Twitter alongside a job ad for an art director, who will define the look of said project.

Obviously, Sony Santa Monica didn’t say anymore besides, but it’s interesting that the studio confirmed the job is for an unannounced project. The developer’s next publicly known project is a sequel to the God of War PS4 reboot, dubbed Ragnarok, which was officially unveiled last year. Ragnarok is coming to PS5 – and potentially PS4 – sometime this year.
The job indicates that Santa Monica studio has two games in-development, which is big news, as Sony’s various first-party teams rarely work on more than a single project at a time.
Indeed, Sony is currently ramping up production on a number of unannounced first-party games. Keeping Santa Monica’s project in mind, there’s also the recently discovered San Diego team, which is seemingly working on an Uncharted sequel. Naughty Dog, and Sucker Punch are, too, hiring for their next projects.
