David Jaffe, the creator of God of War
, may be parting ways with Sony according to internet rumblings.
Rumour suggests that Jaffe and Scott Campbell, the president of Calling All Cars
developer Incognito, are teaming up to form a new company in Utah.†
Pictures of an under-development premises that appeared on Jaffe's blog
(with the moniker “coming soon”) would seem to bear out the rumour.
Jaffe, however, is remaining coy on the subject. In a forum posting he said:
“I can promise you guys I am still part of SCEA...I just got a paycheck from them! I am still 100% a Sony employee and unless I got fired today and they didn't tell me, I'm still working for them. Also, I love working with the guys at Incog and hope to work with them for a long, long time but I sure as shit ain't moving to Utah...nice as it is, I don't think I could live there long term and I don't think the good people of Utah would want me to.”
Eagle-eyed readers will notice that Jaffe says he is “still” part of SCEA, not that he has no plans to leave. As for not wanting to move to Utah permanently (and SPOnG doesn't blame him), Jaffe has shown that he is quite capable of moving between Utah and his base in San Diego with his work on Calling all Cars
