We’ve known for several years that Sony Santa Monica is working on a new title for the PlayStation 4, but the platform holder has kept the release secret during that time. However, the San Diego Comic-Con has provided us with our first hint at the project’s progress, as legendary screenwriter Michael Angeli has confirmed that he’s been collaborating with the first-party outfit for the past two and a half years.
The author – best known for his work on Battlestar Galactica – told Polygon that the unannounced title is unrelated to the God of War series. According to Angeli, upon the completion of the recently released God of War: Ascension, the company transitioned its entire team to the project, which is supposedly being steered by God of War III director Stig Asmussen. Last year, the Sony Santa Monica veteran said that he was doing “cool stuff” at the studio.
Angeli was unable to elaborate any further on the project, but he admitted that his work on Battlestar Galactica had enabled him to land the job, lending credence to the rumours suggesting that the title will be set in space. A secret message discovered in God of War: Ascension hinted as much, noting: “When the Earth stops, the journey begins.” Frustratingly, additional details are being kept under wraps for the time being – but we suspect that this is going to blow your socks off when it’s announced.
MY BODY IS READY!
The Battlestar Galactica reboot was a superbly written show IMO. Couple that with Santa Monica, One of Sonys best studios, and what do we have? Quite possibly a superb game in the making. Looking forward to the announcement to see whats in store. Another hype train in the making here lol
Thank God it is not GoW related. I really think Santa Monica should give the GoW universe a rest for at least another two years — and even so I'm skeptical that the series should go on as it is.
If they did anything GoW-related on the beginning of the next-gen cycle, I highly doubt that they would be able to inovate in terms of graphics or gameplay — last generation mentality/development ideas would be just too close for comfort IMHO.
@fchinaski I don't think we'll see a new God of War until at least 2015 to be honest (possibly 2016). Personally, I hope that they switch mythology. I think Norse or Egyptian would be awesome.
So it might be sci-fi? Imagine Sony Santa Monica doing something like Mass Effect. Oh my God.
It better be announced at Gamescom or I'm going to punch a whale.
@Savino I don't get it?
@Savino Ahh, sorry - I was being dense! I did actually get a 3DS on launch day, but don't tell anyone...
This could get crazy! Can't wait
I'm really excited for this! Can't wait for more info.
Not sure what it could be, just hope its something else to be excited about!!!! I Plan on playing the hell outa games this gen!!!
