Sony’s Santa Monica Studios is famous for the God Of War saga, with God Of War 4 also rumored to be  coming out somewhere around late 2017 , or March 2018 .

If you cast your mind back to E3 2016 it was explicitly stated that God Of War 4 or if you would like to call it God Of War as in the soft reboot , would only be single player. However a recent job posting which has made its way on to the internet seems to suggest  that God Of War 4 may be getting a multiplayer , that or either the devs are working on a supposed new IP.





And Although this is pure speculation , it does raise an interesting question of why would they need a senior multiplayer programmer? Since they have recently sold of their Indie games department to Annapurna , and more importantly the job posting suggests that the incumbent will be joining the team behind the successful God Of War games. Here is the complete description of the said job posting which you can read in detail on Gamasutra

    It’s probably for the next IP in the pipeline. It is interesting to speculate on a GOW multiplayer though.

    I hope not

    That means it’ll take longer for it to come out
