The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Sony “Rebooting” God of War Developer

Posted on Friday, March 7 @ 15:30:00 PST by Alex_Osborn


Sony's Santa Monica Studio is currently going through a "reboot" following the bout of layoffs that hit theGod of Wardeveloper late last month.

In an interview withIGN, Sony's Scott Rohde explained why so many people lost their jobs at Santa Monica, saying:
We’re always evaluating the business, and we’re always thinking about what’s going to be the best thing. But I think you know that PlayStation and Worldwide Studios has a pretty unique structure that really encourages creativity and exploration. And, of course, within that framework, not every title can be a success.

There’s not a single business on the planet where every single project that is started is a success. And that’s just what happened here. So sometimes, high profile projects or studios need a reboot, and that’s what’s happening here. Santa Monica will always be a hugely important part of our global family of studios. It’s still a huge studio that’s right up there around 200 people, even after the recent layoffs.


Last year's entry in the God of War franchise didn't sell particularly well for the studio. There's a good chance Ascension's underwhelming saleswere a major factor in Sony's decision to mix things up.
