Speculations Arise as Job Opening at Santa Monica Studio Hints at New God of War Game

A new God of War game may be in production after discovering a job posting at Santa Monica Studio. The position in question cites “must have knowledge of God of War (2018) and God of War Ragnarök (2022) and be able to speak in depth about the mechanics” as one of the qualifications. The actual ending of God of War Ragnarok demands you to sift through the game’s extensive, broad, and meticulously detailed information, which is first hidden from the player.

The game Ragnarok makes a few allusions to a future sequel, but something is only specific once we hear from the creators. An item in Ragnarok that refers to the civilization has led to the widely accepted fan idea that the next God of War might be set in ancient Egypt. The game’s developers, Santa Monic Studio, wrote about a very particular job opening at their studio so that those theorists could have something there. Currently, they are looking for a “senior combat designer” who will be in charge of “companions.”

An available position suggests that a new God of War may be coming

How directly does this job opening relate to God of War? According to one of the job requirements, the candidate “must know God of War (2018) and God of War Ragnarök (2022) and be able to speak in depth about the combat systems, mechanics, and enemies.”

Intriguingly, Santa Monica would seek a candidate with extensive experience in those two games; they want to develop the gameplay seen in both games in a closely related game. A DLC, spin-off, or sequel? Also, the content creator, Rino, shared the discovery with their network and sparked a conversation about what the job posting might have included.

One user speculates, “It’ll be Atreus looking for the giants.” However, another person accepts the prevalent hypothesis and writes: “Definitely gonna see him in Egypt, and I’m ready for it.” Others wished Santa Monica would put God of War on hold and focus on another IP. Another comment in the post states, “They need to make something different are they gonna only be doing God of War forever.” Though it sounds like a new game announcement, it’s crucial to remember that only time will tell whether this refers to the future online Horizon game or a new DLC.
