God of War III director Stig Asmussen has left Sony Santa Monica, though the situation surrounding his departure from the Sony-owned studio is unclear.

"SCEA can confirm that Stig Asmussen is no longer with Santa Monica Studio," a Sony representative told IGN.

Asmussen was a Sony Santa Monica veteran. He joined the company in 2003 and worked on God of War, God of War II, and God of War III.

He did not work on God of War: Ascension, and was reportedly leading development on a new IP that Sony canceled last month as part of a round of layoffs. Asmussen is, according to IGN's sources, now interviewing at several studios, though none were named.
