One of the most celebrated games of the past generation was without a doubt God of War. Released in 2018 to universal acclaim, it proved that a complete reboot of a franchise can be wildly successful.
It’s fair to say that within God of War, one of the most beloved aspects was the combat which just felt “right” from top to bottom. One of the Senior Combat Designers on God of War was Dean Rymer – who announced that he is now the Lead Combat Designer for inXile Entertainment.
Rymer, whose credits also include PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and a stint at BioWare, posted the news on Twitter last night.
First day as the new Lead Combat Designer @inXile_ent in the books.

The studios under the new Xbox Game Studios suite have certainly been bringing in talent from all across the industry in the past year. While inXile is releasing Wasteland 3 later this year, that project was already well underway when they were acquired by Xbox. However, inXile is reportedly working on a new IP in the vein of a “AAA RPG” which we certainly can’t wait to hear more about.
