A new job advertisement posted by Sony Santa Monica suggests a multiplayer future for the God of War series.
Sony's PlayStation 3 exclusive gore-em-up has always been single-player only.
According to the ad, posted on Gamasutra, Sony's after a senior online programmer to handle "designing and implementing systems and tools to support networking needs (such as in-game communication, client-server, match-making, leaderboards)".
Is Sony Santa Monica plotting competitive or cooperative multiplayer?
God of War III launched early last year as a visual showcase for the PlayStation 3.
It enjoyed a 9/10 in Eurogamer's God of War III review, in which Christian Donlan wrote: "There are no branching paths, no complex decisions, and no multiplayer modes, but this particular game is all the better for it, since the results are rich and focused rather than drawn-out and a little ragged."
