Cory Barlog - one of the motive forces behind the God of War series along with David Jaffe - has completed a circuit of the games industry and finds himself back at Sony's Santa Monica Studios.
In a typically under-stated manner, the man himself says, "I’m baaaaack", he also states that, "I have worked in many places, with any number of smart people of all disciplines, notoriety and awesomeness but nowhere have I encountered so many ‘top-of-their-game’ people as I have at Sony." Given that he's also worked at Crystal Dynamics and Avalanche, this is quite the large statement. So, is there any clue as to the Mad Max
game he was said to be working on? Here's what he's go to say....
"What am I working on, you ask? Good question. Sadly, I cannot tell you…yet. But I can say that it is freaking huge, and it will live up to the standards that I helped establish here at SMS. We’re putting together a team as I type this, an Ocean’s 11 kind of thing. We are searching the world high and low for the best of the BEST to come and be on the ground floor of this endeavor. So, hey, if you are a freaking rock star unafraid to roll your sleeves up and take risks, reading this thinking that your current digs are feeling…well…a bit small, a bit dull and in need of some excitement – you need to contact me at Sony Santa Monica."
