Kojima Productions is Hiring…for the Next Metal Gear Solid Title
Fans thought Metal Gear Solid 4 marked the end of an era. With the way Hideo Kojima talked about it, we all thought that was it. Metal Gears crawling off into the sunset. Or something poetic like that.
However, Kojima Productions is now putting up recruitment notices, alerting developing hopefuls to join up on the next Metal Gear Solid game. Alongside the job posting, KojiPro also released what appears to be the first official piece of artwork.
“Big Boss wants you,” says the recruitment portal. The superstar studio is currently looking for engineers to work on “the latest Metal Gear Solid targeted for high-end consoles and PC,” as well as a “next-gen game engine technology for use with the FOX Engine.”
Think you’ve got the chops to work with some of the industry’s best? Or do you just like dreaming big? Maybe you have a ticket that has GDC printed on it, because KojiPro is asking that all candidates step up front and center at the Konami Booth #1914, which will be located at the Career Pavilion at GDC.
KojiPro has lately been busy with a secretive project, known only by its codename as “Project Ogre.” Hideo Kojima, though he reluctantly keeps coming back to his brain child, said that he’d “probably have to make” the next Metal Gear Solid title due to demand.
The piece of art released depicts someone who looks kind of like Big Boss with a dog. Given Metal Gear‘s obsession with names that have certain animals in it, it might tell us what the next character is named. …maybe?
