God of War: Ascension director departs Sony Santa Monica

God of War: Ascension game director Todd Papy announced his departure from Sony Santa Monica via Twitter today.

Papy joined SCEA Santa Monica in 2010. According to his Twitter, he hasn't "quit games," but will be making a move to Germany.

Previously, Papy did design work for Atari, Sony Computer Entertainment and Midway Games.

Papy isn't the first to depart Santa Monica following a God of War title. Twisted Metal creator David Jaffe left after the first game in the series, while former director Cory Barlog exited after God of War 2. In August of this year, however, Barlog returned to the company to work on a new project.
