- God of War creative director, Cory Barlog, makes cryptic sci-fi-themed changes to his Twitter.
- Bio now includes Morse code that translates to ’55HSIE’.
- It’s unclear if Barlog is trolling or hinting at his next project.
Is Cory Barlog teasing his next project? The Santa Monica Studio creative director has made some pretty seismic changes to his Twitter handle doing away with the God of War theme that has defined his Twitter presence for the past few years.
Cory Barlog’s Space-Themed Twitter
The alterations to his avatar, banner, and bio that appeared late yesterday take on a distinctly cosmic theme. The avatar now features a satellite while the banner depicts a wide shot of a cluster of galaxies.
The satellite image is concept art for NASA’s Voyager 2 spacecraft, while the banner picture is from the Hubble telescope and is known as the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, a snapshot of various galaxies (thanks Resetera).
Interestingly, Cory Barlog used the very same Hubble image in a GDC presentation back in March titled ‘Reinventing God of War.’ He uses the analogy of the Hubble telescope image to describes mythologies and how the geographical switch in God of War was cannon.
Some people had the conception that ‘hey, Kratos at the end of God of War III destroyed the world!’ Well, he destroyed what they believed the world was in Greece, which was their world. Everybody believed their world was the only world; in fact, we still believe that today.
Morse Code – 55HSIE
The following tweet accompanied the changes and reads ‘End Transmission’ alongside a string of what appears to be Morse code.
