Sony Santa Monica is actively working on the next God of War game, but it's likely still years away.
Ready for a new God of War game? Well, the next installment in the PlayStation-exclusive series is in the works, though you probably won't be playing it any time soon. IGN is reporting that Sony Santa Monica Creative Director Cory Barlog confirmed that development on the next God of War game is indeed underway, but we're "a year or two" away from hearing any concrete details about it.
The news comes out of the PlayStation Experience happening today and tomorrow in Las Vegas, Nevada, during a God of War retrospective. Barlog wouldn't divulge any details about what's next for Kratos, but he did definitely say it wouldn't be a prequel to the existing God of War series. The studio behind the franchise suffered a round of layoffs earlier this year, at which point Sony's Scott Rohde said, "You guys are just going to have to be patient and wait for us to announce what's coming next from Santa Monica."
According to IGN, Barlog stated that he would have more to share within the next year or two, but wouldn't confirm whether or not series star Kratos would star in the next game.
