Santa Monica’s God of War Ragnarok has left a significant mark in gaming. Though it signaled the end of the Norse saga, it’s clear that Kratos’ journey is far from over. As fans eagerly anticipate what’s next, recent job listings by SIE Santa Monica Studio hint at the dawn of a new era for the iconic series.
Recent job postings from the studio have set the gaming community abuzz. Notably, positions related to combat design stand out. Positions for Combat Designer, Sr Combat Designer, and Sr Combat Designer (Companions) distinctly mention a requirement for applicants to possess knowledge of God of War (2018) and God of War Ragnarok. This intriguing detail, for many, is an undeniable hint that the next installment of the legendary series is already in its formative phase.
God of War Ragnarok is still fresh in gamers’ minds, with its release not even a year behind us. Details about the franchise’s future are limited. Still, given Ragnarok’s conclusion of the Norse chapter, there’s widespread speculation that the next game will transport players to an entirely new mythological realm.
The excitement doesn’t end there; Director Eric Williams had previously commented that Ragnarok would likely not receive any DLC. This further strengthens the argument that Santa Monica Studio is gearing up for a brand-new game, rather than an expansion of the existing title.
