David Jaffe, the creative mind behind the God of War franchise, has revealed that his next, unannounced game has been cancelled.

The scrapping of the project has resulted in the laying off of majority of the development staff at his studio, The Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency. The team’s only game to date, Drawn to Death, was a PlayStation 4-exclusive third-person multiplayer shooter released last year to disappointing reviews. However, in addition to God of War, Jaffe was one of the key development staff members behind the vehicular combat series Twisted Metal, so he has a long history in the single-player sphere.

Jaffe revealed the news via his Twitter account, where he also took the opportunity to express his emotions on the downsizing:

The development community has responded well to the news, with representatives from The Order: 1886 developer Ready at Dawn and an external Activision developer reaching out to let Jaffe know of opportunities for the laid-off staff members.

Hopefully the affected personnel are able to land in new roles in the near future.
