Sony Santa Monica Is Looking To Expand Their World
Sony Santa Monica is best known for God of War and, uhm…not much else. They don’t produce anything else and that’s frustrating considering God of War: Ascension was an unnecessary prequel and the studio’s talents could be put to better use than milking a franchise.
A few job listings posted by the studio suggests a departure from their comfort zone in pursuit of something more open-world. The listings, posted to Gamasutra, seek designers with experience working on “open world” games, as well as vehicular combat and third and first person shooters.

Meanwhile, the listing for Senior Combat Designer seeks those able to assist with “character and boss designs from concept to implementation.” Experience developing or designing vehicle combat is considered “a plus”.
It sounds like something definitely not God of War related and it will be interesting to see what Santa Monica has to offer if the rumours of an E3 reveal are true.
