Sony Job Ads Basically Confirm That ‘God Of War 2’ Is Happening
Sony Santa Monica - the first-party PlayStation studio that brought us 2018's multi-award-winning God of War - has posted some very telling job ads. Job ads that scream to us: God of War 2 is coming, people. This is not a drill.
As reported by Gamesradar+, listings have popped up for roles covering combat design and narrative - and knowledge of a certain previous game made by the studio is vital.
The post for senior combat designer stresses that applicants need to "have knowledge of God of War (2018) and be able to speak about the combat systems, mechanics and enemies". I mean, I can do that: throw an axe into heads, the bodies they're attached to fall over. Repeat.
Also mentioned in the job ads is that "next-generation video game platform experience is desirable". God of War 2 confirmed for PlayStation 5.
This update on a potential God of War sequel (and let's be honest, they're not not going to make one) comes hot on the heels of other teases that seem to point towards a follow-up game either being subtitled Ragnarok, or having something significant to do with the mythological end-times event.
Given the huge popularity of God of War - in addition to its many awards, the game's sold in excess of 10 million copies, which is huge for any single-platform exclusive - it'd be madness for Sony to make a sequel exclusively for its next-gen console. So don't be surprised that while that next-gen experience is desirable, it means this is only targeting hardware that we, the public, don't know about yet.
PS4 sales might have slowed down lately, but there are almost 100 million units out there, in homes around the world. The PS5 - or whatever it's called - is expected to be released in 2020 or 2021 - but even two years from now, it's highly unlikely that Sony will have abandoned its PS4 audience.
Wherever God of War 2 - working title, obvs - ends up, fingers crossed that it delivers a comparably excellent experience to its predecessor, one of the very best PS4 exclusives out there. And hopefully it'll let us batter Thor, should he so much as lay a crackling pinkie on our massive serpent pal.
ICYMI, a full-length documentary on the making of God of War, Raising Kratos, came out in May - and UNILAD Gaming picked out ten of its most incredible moments.
