Alanah Pearce, an ex-IGN games journalist who most recently worked for Rooster Teeth, has joined Sony Santa Monica as a writer. The Australian scribe – who has a massive social media following, including a YouTube channel with over 500k subscribers – announced the news on Twitter earlier today.
“I’m finally allowed to announce my new job,” she said, following her departure from Rooster Teeth earlier in the year, “as a video game writer at Sony Santa Monica, who you probably know as the studio who make God of War. I am so, so proud to be a part of this incredible team.”
Maybe we’re reading into things a little too deeply, but the wording of the Tweet implies that she may not be working on the upcoming God of War Ragnarok. That would probably make sense, as the sequel is due out in 2021, and most of its script is probably finished by now. Could she have been recruited for a new project? Time will tell.
Congrats to Alanah whatever she’s up to!
