Talking to reporters at Arstechnica, representatives of the gaming company confirmed the game is primarily being developed by Canadian developers, Jetpack Interactive.

Even though Jetpack Interactive has not worked with Sony on any previous title, the developers deserve full credit for plenty of games loved by the community; games like Dark Souls PC, various NBA live games, and Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare II are in the mix.

The game originally launched back in 2018 and has sold close to 20 million copies on PS4 alone. The sequel to the game, God of War Ragnarök, is also expected to launch in 2022.
