God of War PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Sony Santa Monica, the micro-publishing arm and premier development team within SCEA, has "lots of cool stuff on the way" – and we're assuming that it's not just referring to Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and Fat Princess Adventures. Speaking on the latest episode of Conversations with Creators, the firm hinted that it held a "gathering" for all of its teams shortly after E3 – and there was some mind blowing stuff on display.

"The line-up that we have, the stuff that we're working on… It scares the hell out of me and makes me want to go back to work and work harder," said Cory Barlog, who's been brought back into the firm's fold after some time away. "And that's awesome. That is a great time to be playing games, to be a gamer. To actually be consuming this content. I think what we have is exciting. I don't know how specific we can get..."

In addition to the external projects that the studio's helping bring to life, Barlog confirmed at a PlayStation Experience panel that a new God of War game is in development. Exactly what direction it will take remains to be seen, but we're personally hoping for a whole new mythology with a fresh cast of characters. We suspect that Sony will keep the title under wraps for the time being, but we'd bet on it putting in an appearance at the next E3.
