Alanah Pearce has had a pretty busy 2020. In addition to already appearing as a character in the upcoming release of Cyberpunk 2077, the former games media personality has now announced that she’s making a jump to working on games in a full-time capacity.

Announced on social media, Pearce revealed that she is now working at Sony Santa Monica Studio as a game writer. Santa Monica Studio, as you surely know, is the studio that most recently released 2018’s God of War and is currently working on the game’s 2021 sequel for PS5. “I am so, so proud to be a part of this incredible team,” Pearce said in the tweet making this announcement.

Pearce posted an accompanying video to her YouTube channel (which you can find below) and explained that this jump from the media side of things to working at a studio is something that she has been working towards for roughly five years. She has said that she is officially working in a junior position and also said that she’s not allowed to disclose what project she might be working on. Additionally, she is also allowed to continue working on the projects that she currently has which includes her YouTube channel and podcast, Play, Watch, Listen.

Adding my own conjecture here, considering the next God of War is set to release next year, it seems as though Pearce could be working on something else at Santa Monica Studio. For the developer to bring on a new writer so late in the project’s development would seem a bit bizarre. Then again, I know nothing about how game studios operate on that level so I could easily be wrong. Either way, we’ll surely hear more about what Pearce is working on down the road.
