God of War: Ragnarok seems almost finished as its developer Santa Monica Studio has already started work on a brand new project.
According to a new job posting today (via GameRant), Santa Monica Studio is seeking a senior character concept artist for a “new unannounced title” that needs to “visualize dynamic and believable characters who set the bar for creativity and complexity on the PlayStation console. ”
The job posting also suggests that the unannounced game is currently in its early concept phase, so Santa Monica Studio will likely continue to focus its full focus on completing God of War: Ragnarok.
The developer likely intends to keep increasing resources devoted to his new project as Kratos is nearing completion and development comes into full swing once God of War: Ragnarok is released.
It should be noted that Santa Monica Studio mentioned PlayStation as the platform for its new, unannounced game, which could point to another cross-generational release. God of War: Ragnarok was believed to only land on PlayStation 5. Its cross-generational status actually raised some concerns as fans felt that the optimization of Kratos for PlayStation 4 could warrant limiting the PlayStation 5 version due to console parity.
God of War: Ragnarok remains with no release date, but publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment intends to release the game exclusively for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 consoles in 2022. The game will be the second and final part that concludes the Norse mythology saga, unlike the previous trilogy, the Greek saga takes on.
