God of War PSP dev's new game is for PS3

Is a third-person action adventure.

The independent studio behind the God of War PlayStation Portable games is making a third-person action adventure game for the PlayStation 3, a new job listing has revealed.

Ready At Dawn is after an animator and a technical artist to work on the unannounced, "exciting new IP", according to a job listing on Gamasutra.

Ready At Dawn developed God of War: Ghost of Sparta and God of War: Chains of Olympus, both of which were ported to PS3 and recently released in HD as God of War Collection Volume II.

Last year the studio waved goodbye to the PSP with the launch of Ghost of Sparta, and told Eurogamer it was working on a brand new story driven action adventure based on an in-house intellectual property.

At that point the developer hadn't narrowed down mechanics, but RAD co-founder, creative director and ex-Blizzard staffer Ru Weerasuriya said he intended to make a game like Naughty Dog's Uncharted.

"It's the kind of game we're going to make," Weerasuriya said. "I'm just glad they did it first. It should prove to everybody it's doable and it's worth doing that kind of stuff."

The job descriptions place a heavy emphasis on animation and motion capture - both hallmarks of the Uncharted series.
