God of War studio Sony Santa Monica has released a new job advertisement asking for help with an unannounced game.
The studio unveiled the long-awaited God of War: Ragnarok during September’s PS5 showcase, and confirmed a release window from 2021. In a new tweet reporting a vacant Art Director position, Sony Santa Monica says they are “seeking an experienced Art Director for the development of a new unannounced title, “so we can be sure that the entry does not refer to God of War 2.

Unfortunately, the elimination process only gets us this far in this case. We know that Sony Santa Monica is hiring a new game that is not God of War 2, but we have small clues that suggest what the mystery game might be. Sometimes we can pick out some descriptions from the job description, but there is nothing here that is worth pointing out.
We know that Sony Santa Monica once worked on a sci-fi game, but it was canceled way back in 2014. Concept art allegedly from the project finally appeared in 2017 (thanks Eurogamer), but there are no indications that the game in development today has every relationship. Still, it is worth mentioning the possibility that the studio will pick up an old project.
Also noteworthy is recent speculation that Roger Clark, the voice behind Arthur Morgan in Red Dead Redemption 2, may be working with Sony Santa Monica. Although the theories are true, it is quite possible that Clark is expressing a character from God of War 2 and not the title referred to in the new job list.
God of War 2 is just one of many upcoming PS5 games we are looking forward to playing.
