Battlestar Galactica scribe Michael Angeli is working on the next game from God of War studio Sony Santa Monica.
Angeli revealed the news today at the San Diego Comic-Con's Battlestar Galactica panel (thanks, Polygon).
The writer said he had been working on the game for the last two-and-a-half years, but it may still be some time before the game is complete. Santa Monica's 150-strong development team only began working on the project in full force after wrapping up God of War: Ascension earlier this year.
Angeli refused to give more details about the unannounced project but confirmed it was not a new God of War title.
Players who decoded a hidden message in God of War: Ascension found a mysterious sci-fi Easter egg that may point to the new project.
The decoded puzzle revealed an image of Earth from space with the message: "When the Earth stops, the journey begins..."
No further details of the project were revealed, although a PlayStation 4 release seems likely. It also begs the question - with Sony Santa Monica working on this, is the God of War series on hiatus or in development somewhere else?
