God of War Dev Seeking Combat Designer for Next Mystery Game

God of War developer Santa Monica Studio is currently seeking a combat designer to work on its next mystery game. The latest job listing appeared on the studio’s website yesterday, indicating that this new project could be tied to the franchise in some way as the applicant must have “knowledge of God of War (2018) and Ragnarok.”

The position for combat designer at Santa Monica Studio states that applicants “must have knowledge of God of War (2018) and God of War Ragnarök (2022) and be able to speak in depth about the combat systems, mechanics, and enemies.” As some fans pointed out, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this project is a new God of War game, though given the monumental critical and commercial success of the last two games, it makes sense that PlayStation would want to push forward with more entries in the franchise.

It’s worth noting that the listing is for a game that Santa Monica Studio had been developing alongside Ragnarok for some time now. We know that 2018’s God of War director Cory Barlog might be working on his own new IP and this could very well be that project. On the other hand, it’s possible that the early stages of development on the next God of War already began during Ragnarok‘s development too. We can’t know for certain yet.

It also makes sense that Sony would want to continue Kratos’ mythology-hopping and pit the Spartan against a new pantheon of gods, which seems to be the running theme of the franchise. One important item’s description in Ragnarok may have already hinted at the series possibly heading to Egypt next. Given the open-ended yet still conclusive ending of Ragnarok, though, fans are still hoping to learn about Atreus’ new adventures beyond Midgard, which would be a good set-up for a new series of games.

God of War Ragnarok is available on PS4 and PS5.
