The study responsible for the port of God of War for compatible is already working on a new exclusive for Sony PlayStation. And the most important thing: it belongs to a very famous Sony IP.
This is not the first time that Sony’s interest in games as a service. With the continuity of Call of Duty in the air, the Japanese company is looking for a competitive IP that will give it a presence in the field of online multiplayer titles.
A few months ago it was confirmed that PlayStation works on up to ten games as a service, and that regardless of the future bungie projects (Creators of Destiny and owned by Sony).
For a long time nothing else was heard…until now. And it is that Jetpack Interactive, responsible for the port of God of War for PC, they are working on a game as a service for PlayStation.

The news has not made much noise (for now), but it is confirmed in the LinkedIn profile by Jetpack. The studio based in Vancouver (Canada) prepares a new exclusive AAA for Sony.
Although there are not many specific details about the project, very interesting aspects can be unraveled in the Jetpack Interactive job offers. To begin with, we are facing a game as a service that would be launched on Sony consoles and I would have a big budget.
This is the general description of the job offer:
”We’re hiring programmers to join our small, nimble team at JETPACK. We’re excited to embark on a new live services title with Sony, and we’re ready for launch. If you are an experienced game developer and want to join our team to launch a AAA title, please contact us.”.
If we take a look at other offers in Canadian study websitewe discovered a very juicy detail: Jetpack’s game as a service is based on a flagship Sony PlayStation IP.
In other words, it seems that it will not be a new IP, but a delivery belonging to a franchise of the Japanese company. Assuming it’s an FPS… could it be Killzone? SOCOM? Resistance?
In addition to developing the port of God of War in compatible, Jetpack Interactive has plenty of experience as a support studio. In his curriculum we find other developments such as Orcs Must Die! Unchained, Dark Souls (PC), Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 or NBA Live.
What’s more, Jetpack Interactive is collaborating with Santa Monica in the development of God of War Ragnarok. Who knows, maybe they will be at the controls of a hypothetical and future PC port.
What will the game as a service from Jetpack Interactive and Sony PlayStation look like? Fans are already making their pools, and the possibility of seeing the return of a Sony war IP is very, very big. Would you like to see a new SOCOM?
