God of War II’s Art Director no longer works for Sony Santa Monica.
Stig Asmussen, commonly just known as Stig, has left Sony Santa Monica. Some may be reading this and wondering who this person is, and the answer is simple: He was one of the core people behind the original God of War trilogy.
To be more specific, he worked on the environment art in the original game. He was given the position of Art Director for God of War II, and when the third game came around he worked as the Creative Director. He had no part in God of War: Ascension, however.
Though it isn’t known if he left Sony of his own accord (either before or after the layoffs that occurred a few weeks ago) or was one of those caught up in the layoffs is unknown. What is known is that Sony has confirmed to IGN that the man is no longer with the studio, and we hear that he is currently in the process of interviewing at several other studios.
