God of War developer Sony Santa Monica Studio has posted up a series of job listings that suggest the company’s next franchise could be set in a ‘fantasy-based world.’ Right now the studio is obviously busy with God of War Ragnarok, but is evidently looking towards the future, too.
The team is currently hiring for a Senior Character Concept Artist, which outright confirms that the role pertains to “the development of a new unannounced title.”
Develop and maintain strong creative and collaborative partnerships across subject areas to help further develop the in-game characters, visual language, and rule sets for fantasy-based worlds.
In addition, it also reveals that the job requires “strong design skills with the ability to render realistic believable fantasy-based characters, creatures, and props using contemporary industry standard tools and techniques.”
God of War Ragnarok is currently in production for the PS5, although a release date has yet to be announced. While the previous games were based on Greek mythology, God of War 2018 and Ragnarok both deal with a Norse influence.
