Cory Barlog, the mind behind the recent and critically acclaimed God of War, seems to be teasing something on his Twitter account. Could this be a brand new game?

Barlog recently sent out a cryptic tweet which has the internet a buzz. While it’s really only a few dots, dashes and some text that reads “END TRANSMISSION”, many are speculating about the meaning.
He also updated his profile picture to that of a satellite and his cover photo to what appears to be a star-filled background. Naturally, this has had some fans wondering whether Cory Barlog might be working on a brand new sci-fi-inspired game. Some are even suggesting that he might be joining a studio that is known for their sci-fi games, perhaps the studio behind Mass Effect?
Eagle-eyed fans discovered that the dots in the tweet could actually be morse code, which reads “55HSIE”. The 55H remains a mystery but there is little doubt in fan’s minds that the “SIE” refers to “Sony Interactive Entertainment”.
Could this be another indication that Cory Barlog might be leaving Sony or that he might be taking up another position in the company? This is plausible, especially since a recent reshuffle in Sony Worldwide Studios saw Hermen Hulst from Guerilla Games announced as the company’s new head.
There are also those who believe that this could be referring to a brand new God of War game, as Cory Barlog tweeted way back in January that he had a concept for a God of War DLC that took place in outer space and featured monkeys.
But this seems highly unlikely, right? Maybe not.
