Looks like Kojima and co. are ramping up for “the Next Generation Metal Gear Solid Series,” with a recent job listing requesting applicants to join a team focusing of the future of Kojima-san’s imitable stealth franchise.
The listing seeks planners (level designers and scipters), programmers (in the area of graphics, network, plug-ins, audio and game character) and CG designers; the latter looking for talented folk with a flair for concept art, 3D character modeling, 3D stage modeling, 3D character motion design, event scene production, effect production and interface design.
Kojima Productions are explicitly after industry people with experience in PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game development. People who are currently making next-gen titles, in other words. Interested? Remember: it’s never too late to learn Japanese. Ganbatte!
