Could God of War developer Sony Santa Monica's next game be vehicle combat open world title? Job listings seem to suggest that this will be the case and a reveal of the title may come at E3 next month.

The studio recently Tweeted and there has been no further information forthcoming. However, the developer is looking to recruit a senior combat designer with experience working on either first or third person shooters. Applicants should preferably have some knowledge of vehicle based combat. 

CVG meanwhile has discovered a since-removed listing for a developer with credentials in developing "open world" titles. Given the studio's Tweet it's likely that whatever this game is there be an announcement at Sony's pre-E3 press conference which is set for June 10th at 18:00 PT.

The studio is currently helping to develop Hohokum for PS3, PS Vita and PS4. Their last major title was God of War: Ascension.

Sony has said that all first party studios are developing for PS4 so we may also see something from Naughty Dog which may feature pirates and other internal developers at E3.

If nothing else we should learn more about the PS4's release date and pricing.
