The studio behind God of War Ragnarok just got bigger by adding a well-known face from the industry to its roster. Alanah Pearce is the new video game writer at Sony's Santa Monica Studio.

Alanah Pearce , the ex-IGN gaming journalist has shared her excitement with more than 400k of her Twitter followers about starting the new role at Santa Monica Studio as a video game writer.

Santa Monica Studio is one of the top-tier Sony's first-party studios, best-known for the God of War franchise, and Kratos is one of the most iconic gaming characters in the gaming industry. 

Alanah hinted that she'll be working on God of War Ragnarok, the sequel to one of the best games from 2018 - God of War. But, that could just be her joking with her followers, as Ragnarok is due to release in 2021, so the script should be pretty much finished by now. Maybe she'll be working on some unannounced projects?

Sony's exclusive games are very story-driven, and games such as God of War are considered to be system-sellers, and we saw earlier that Sony's Santa Monica Studio is hiring and boosting the team for the upcoming Kratos' adventure with his son Atreus by his side. 

Hermen Hulst , the head of PlayStation Worldwide Studios, praised Alanah's writing talent and was one of the many people from the industry that have congratulated her on her new job. 

One of the coolest guys in the business, Cory Barlog from Santa Monica Studio, the producer of God of War, also shared his excitement for the latest roster addition and ordered Alanah to suit up by posting a funny gif (classic Cory), but the job ahead is a serious one, that's for sure, as filling the shoes of the 2018's God of War will be no small task.

Ragnarok is already one of the most anticipated games of 2021, and we can't wait to see how such a great studio as Santa Monica will utilize all that raw power of the next-gen (well, current-gen) system and make a jaw-dropping action-adventure game. DualSense's haptic feedback features have so much potential in a fantasy title like this one, so it will be interesting to see how will the studio make us "feel" the game.

We congratulate Alanah Pearce on her new job at Santa Monica Studio and wish her all the luck on the upcoming projects.
