‘Battlestar Galactica’ Writer Working On Script For Sony Santa Monica IP

‘Battlestar Galactica’ Writer Working On Script For Sony Santa Monica IP

And it’s not God of War.

Seasoned television screenwriter  Michael Angeli has been writing the script for an unannounced Sony Santa Monica game for the last two and a half years.

Speaking to Polygon at Comic-Con, Angeli added that After the studio wrapped development on God of War: Ascension for PlayStation 3, the full team of about 150 staffers transitioned to work on the new and still unannounced project.

However due to the unannounced nature of the project, Angeli said he couldn’t elaborate on the game or the platform, but said that his Battlestar Galactica work, as well as his journalism background, helped him land the writing gig.

So it seems as if Sony Santa Monica and Naughty Dog have taken up the same business model of becoming studios with two teams working on tried and true franchises like Uncharted and God of War, and new work like The Last of Us, and whatever Santa Monica is forging.
