God of War – Kratos Looking To Return?



God of War III was ‘officially’ the last God of War in the series. Sony did mention prior to GOW3’s release that it would be Kratos’ last outing. [spoiler intro="End of GOW3"]
Kratos went straight to the top – after finshing off the likes of Poseidan, Hades, Helios and his half-brother Hercules, he fulfilled his vengeance by killing off Zeus towards the end of the game. [/spoiler]That for me was the moment of the game I truly realised that there would be no more Kratos adventures for me to enjoy.

Of course, I was wrong as we saw the PSP games and the legendary PS2 games remastered – but they were mere episodes of Kratos’ past enjoyed by many originally on a different platform – but now in HD on the PS3 – and they didn’t disappoint.

It now seems that GOW3 wasn’t the end of our much loved character, as a certain job requirement has sprung up across the web. A listing posted on Creative Heads states that Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) developer Santa Monica is looking for a Senior Staff Concept Artist for a God of War project.

The job description is as follows:

“Project: God of War
Job Duties(s): Conceptual Development / Illustration
Software Utilized: Illustrator, Photoshop, Painter 3D
Platform(s): Playstation
Genre(s): Military / Combat
Relocation: Yes
Required Spoken Language(s): English
Required Work Auth.: Work Anywhere
Start Date: Immediately

The Sony Santa Monica Studio is hiring for an unannounced new IP!

We are an open and creative environment that strives to make the best games in the industry. Join us as we embark on our next project!”

You can view the full Job Advert at Creative Head’s website.

To me it seems that this title may ‘possibly’ be for the all-new shiny PS Vita, or it may also appear on the PS3 too? It’s rather hard to tell at this moment in time as the platform on the advert strictly states ‘PlayStation’, however I’m keeping my fingers and toes crossed for it to appear on both platforms.

If a new God of War title is definitely in the works then it looks like I’m going to have to work even harder – to try and save some hard earned cash so I can send my wife and my daughter away for a weekend they will never forget – and one that I will enjoy being Kratos, for which maybe ‘the last outing’ as the God of War!

    IGN broke this news yesterday. At this rate even if they do make a new GoW it will be at least a year until they officially announce it

    I hope, for you sake, that this will be a PS3 game lol I have this hunch about a Vita exclusive for next year … just a hunch

    I also think this could be a vita title, would give a lot of of visibility to the new console.

    I enjoy GoW as a story more than a game though, so it’d be just a rental.

    Yea It says Military, hmmmm idk what to think. GOW wasnt really in the military genre

    umm its not a GOW game without Kratos, I mean they did leave it open that Kratos could return at the very end of GOW3 were you see a blood path leading off a clif so I dont know I guess we will all see if Kratos returns, but if did whos he going to kill? cause he killled who he wanted to kill I mean all the gods are dead now, all the main gods of the greek mythology, their or more in the greek mythology they never mention soooooo.

    “Unannounced New IP” means it’s not God of War.
