It seems like work on the God of War sequel may have begun already.
God of War launched earlier this year, earning rave reviews, and selling 5 million copies in a month. So naturally, a sequel to it was all but assured- God of War had always been one of Sony’s tentpole properties, and Cory Barlog’s superlative reboot only revitalized it for a new generation.
It looks like development on that sequel – or at least a substantial new expansion pack for the game – may have already begun. The Santa Monica Studio website is now listing a job posting for a concept artist, to draw and design new gods. Which, you know, they won’t be doing that for the lulz. It’s pretty clear that this is for a new entry in Kratos’ story. If you have the gumption to reimagine Thor and Odin for a new era, then head on over to the website yourself, and file an application.
God of War‘s story ends at a crucial juncture, leaving the doors of the title’s take on Norse mythology wide open for a lot of events and gods depicted in the original stories in future games. I have to hope some of that will make it into the sequel- if you’ve finished the game, you know what I am talking about.
