God of War III goes online

A job advertisement on Sony Computer Entertainment America's recruitment site has revealed that the God of War team is looking for an "online gameplay programmer." Do the math and you can assume that God of War III is set to feature some sort of online mode.

"Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) Santa Monica is seeking an online gameplay programmer to join the team behind the critically acclaimed AAA titles God of War and God of War II," the ad reads.

The job holder "designs, develops and maintains the networking portions of game and tools code," and will also have to "interact with gameplay programmers to make existing and new code support desired network functionality (including networking of gameplay state, lobbying, commerce, chat, security, and similar)." Hm, interesting.

We've no idea how an online God of War would work, or even what it wouldlook like. The multiplayerideas we've come with so far (Olympus CTF, Gods 'n' Crooks, Deity Deathmatch) are rubbish. Let's hope SCEA can think of better modes.
