God of War Ragnarok: Alanah Pearce Joins Santa Monica Studio
The development team at Sony Santa Monica Studio has received another reinforcement. Alanah Pearce, former IGN editor and Funhaus presenter, joins the team of God of War Ragnarok.
Santa Monica Studio is known to be working on the PlayStation 5 exclusive God of War Ragnarok, which will be created once again under the direction of Creative Director Cory Barlog. However, the developers have also hired a new writer who in the past was best known as the IGN editor.
We’re talking about Alanah Pearce, who appeared on the Funhaus YouTube channel after she left IGN. Pearce has confirmed via Twitter that she will work as a video game writer for a PlayStation first-party studio. She then confirmed Sony Santa Monica in a YouTube video.
“I am writing a video game at one of my favourite studios in the entire world,” Pearce said. “God of War is one of the best games of the generation.”

She had long wanted to work for a developer one day. In the past, she had worked on three video games in an advisory capacity and had done other work on two other titles. In addition, she was to be heard as a voice actress in Gears 5 and Afterparty, while she will even be seen as a character in the upcoming action role-playing game Cyberpunk 2077.
Accordingly, it will be interesting to see what Alanah Pearce can contribute to future productions at Santa Monica Studios.
