God of War dev revealing new game at E3?

Sony Santa Monica tweets "4 weeks to E3..." as job listings point to open-world game with vehicle combat.

Gamers interested in finding out what's next from God of War developer Sony Santa Monica may only have to wait a few more weeks. Writing on Twitter recently, the developer teased "4 weeks to E3…"

No further details are available, though job listings at Sony Santa Monica offer some insight into what form this game may take.

One job ad for a senior combat designer seeks a developer with experience making first- or third-person shooters. Knowledge of designing vehicle combat is a plus for the position. In addition, CVG spotted a since-removed job listing that called for a staffer with experience developing open-world games.

Sony Santa Monica's most recent game was March's God of War: Ascension. The company this week announced it had partnered with artist Richard Hogg and London-based studio Honeyslug for a new PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita game called Hohokum.

I want the game developments to make another new Twisted Metal game. Only if they make another sequel of the God of Wars game, then I will accept it and can be patient with it.

I can't imagine anything but a giant Twisted Metal online game. Big open world, vehicles with guns...

I'm intrigued. I know it's not going to happen but I'd love it if they FINALLY explored that unlock-able video from the first God of War, the one that hinted at a modern day 'hero' exploring the decayed remains of Chronos and Pandora's Temple.

Curious. I wonder. What do they have in store for us?

These guys know how to make good action games. They could make a new IP if they wanted, as long as it's just as good as God of War.

I want to see a new IP from Santa Monica other than God of War, I want to see how capable the studio is. This generation all they made were 2 GOW games and helped with some indie games, that's it.

We already have 5 best shooters :

1.Battlefield 2.Call of duty 3.Halo 4.Killzone 5.Bioshock

But we have only 1 developer that can truly create a sick and gore game like God of War, Please Santa Monica stay where you should ...

God of War is soooo played out it is not even funny. They need to ditch the series imo. If you have played one, you have played them all.

Obviously it isn't God of War. Not mentioning that it is apparently an open world shooter with vehicle combat, it's too soon for a sequel, not just because Ascension, but because of the console life cicle. And they are perfectly aware that if a new God of War is released, it has to be an Atla's effort.

@sleepnsurf I don't care about milking AS long as new IPs are still being developed. Sony is no Nintendo that is for sure so.... Of course the Sony is no Nintendo needs clarification. Sony milk but release new IPs all the time like this year already Guacamelee and Soul Sacrifice. They will release Jak collection again but who cares because we got 2 new IPs. Nintendo are on another Mario golf, RPG, LTTP, Smash bros, .... Same games types, same general art aesthetic, same franchises. I cannot see the difference between the Animal crossing titles anymore.

 If you have played one, you have played them all.... that's can be said about almost every game (series).

@painpas @sleepnsurf I would point out Puppeteer, The Last of Us, The Last Guardian, and Beyond: Two Souls as major new IPs we haven't see yet. I always make the argument that Nintendo focuses too heavily on old franchises but don't come with anything new in the process. 

I loved Mario but I am personally getting tired of him and I am actually more annoyed that Nintendo always has to count on Mario, Metroid, and Zelda to save the day. There are Nintendo fans that are so disillusional that they will think every Nintendo system is the best if they have those three franchises.

Exactly the gameplay is loved, why it doesn't change. Santa actually make new environments, creatures, bosses for each game and playing Ascention fealt like I was playing Ascention not GOW 1 or 2 or 3. They also added a multiplayer to Ascention which hadn't been done before and as much as the haters (none ps3 owners) want to believe it was just tacked on, it is actually pretty good.
