God of War developer SCE Santa Monica Studio is relocating out of Santa Monica and into the Playa Vista area of Los Angeles, Variety reports.

The move, which is reportedly due to take place this summer, will see the developer moved to a new "20-acre facility on Jefferson Boulevard in Playa Vista" 5 miles south of its current location.

It isn't known whether the developer will receive a name change to reflect the move.

"We took some time to hone in on location," said Shannon Studstill, founder and head of Sony Santa Monica. "We love Santa Monica. It's been our home for over a decade."

But the new location will provide the developer with "four or five times" the space it currently has available, Studstill says, with additional conference rooms, an improved sound bay and a motion capture studio.

Sony Santa Monica is currently collaborating with multiple other studios on the development of Hohokum, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and The Order: 1886, and is believed to have its own unannounced PS4 project in development.
