Video game journalist, podcaster, and YouTuber Alanah Pearce has announced that she's now working at God Of War developer SIE Santa Monica Studio. The former Rooster Teeth and IGN employee confirmed on Twitter that she's taken a position as a writer on an undisclosed project. I'd like to assume it's the recently announced God Of War 2, but for obvious reasons she couldn't get into what she's working on.
"I am so, so proud to be a part of this incredible team," Pearce said on Twitter. It's been a pretty busy year for the journalist, as she also revealed a few months back that she'll be appearing in CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077 as character who sends players off on a certain mission.
Hi everyone. I'm finally allowed to announce my new job... as a video game writer at @SonySantaMonica, who you probably as the studio who make God of War. I am so, SO proud to be a part of this incredible team :sob::heart:. pic.twitter.com/1IysuZM2L9- Alanah Pearce (@Charalanahzard) November 17, 2020
"Thank you all so, so much for all the love today," Pearce added. "I am so honoured to have even the tiniest little hand (seriously, very small, I am just a junior ok) on the absolutely incredible medium that is video games."
Pearce also uploaded a new video to her YouTube channel explaining in a little more detail why she's decided to make the transition from press to working at a studio. She admitted that this is something she's been working towards for around five years now, and that her new role is in a junior position. Her fans will also be glad to know that she's allowed to continue with her YouTube channel and the Play, Watch, Listen podcast. Just don't expect her to give up all of Santa Monica Studio's juicy secrets, obviously.
While most of us are assuming that Pearce is working on God Of War 2, others have speculated that it could be an entirely new project. We don't know how far into development the sequel is, but the fact it was announced just a few months ago does suggest that it might be a bit late to be bringing on new writers. Then again, there could still be plenty of side-missions and dialogue to write up even if the main story has been fleshed out. We'll just to have wait and see, but congratulations to Pearce in the meantime!
