    God of War

    Cory Barlog has had his hand in a variety of video games as a developer and director, but his work on the God of War games is what put him in the public spotlight. He was the original God of War's animation director, but when David Jaffe left the team, he went on to take his place as director of God of War II. Fans of the series were understandably uneasy when Barlog announced he was leaving Sony Computer Entertainment, Santa Monica, to pursue other projects in late 2007. Following his departure, Barlog repeatedly assured fans that Kratos will be in good hands in the much anticipated sequel, God of War III, which released with mostly positive reception in March 2010.

    Time Away From SCEA

    Facts about why Barlog left SCEA remain cloudy. In an interview on Mega64, Barlog admitted that he was working on a lot of games. However, the only one he was allowed to mention outright was a Mad Max video game with filmmaker George Miller. Additionally, he had taken employment with Crystal Dynamics to work on the Tomb Raider reboot.

    Return to Sony Santa Monica

    In August 2013, it was announced that Barlog was once again joining Sony Santa Monica to work on an unannounced new game.
