Big Boss Wants You: Kojima Hiring For "Next MGS"
Okay, so you're not into Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. You want a true-blue Metal Gear Solid installment where stealth actually exists.
If that's the case, you've been waiting for Hideo Kojima to announce Metal Gear Solid 5, even if there's no knowing when it might show up.
The good news is that Kojima has revealed via Twitter that he's currently hiring for the "next MGS." Linking to a GDC job portal site named "Big Boss Wants You: The 'Next' MGS," the team is seeking people to fill programming, game design, art, sound, and production positions. The game in question is being made for "high-end consoles and PC" and yes, it'll utilize the FOX Engine.
Positions are available in both Japan and California, which raised some eyebrows. As it turns out, Kojima Productions producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi later Tweeted that they will open a new studio in the US if they can "find the right people." In the past, Kojima has said he wanted to step away from the MGS series and try something new, but he has also made it clear that he doesn't want to disappoint his loyal following.
So when might an unveiling occur? Well, based on this widespread hiring, probably not for a while. But at least the term "next MGS" will get people excited and we have something definite to anticipate.
