Revealed through her personal Twitter account, Bonnie Jean Mah has joined God of War developer Sony Santa Monica Studio as a narrative director. Previously, Mah had spent a lot of time working on another franchise that can be shortened to GoW — Gears of War. She was the property's franchise narrative manager and later franchise narrative director at The Coalition. That's a lot of narrative.
Most recently, Mah was working on an unannounced open world RPG at TiMi Montreal — a studio owned by Tencent. She was also narrative lead and lead writer on Xbox Games Studios-published Age of Empires 4, and she started in the games industry as a writer and narrative designer on Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, all the way back in 2008.
"I'm SO excited to share my news: I’ve joined @SonySantaMonica as a Narrative Director. I’m beyond thrilled to be working with this team and studio," Mah writes on social media.
We don't yet know what project Mah will be assigned to at Santa Monica Studio, but it's fair to assume that her position means she'll have a lot of influence over how the game's story is shaped. Hopefully we learn more about the team's next game in the relatively near future.
