Kojima Productions staffing up Los Angeles studio

Metal Gear developer looking for artists, programmers and designers for its Los Angeles-based development studio.

In February this year, Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima revealed Kojima Productions was on the lookout for new development talent for the next title in the popular franchise.

What will Kojima Productions Los Angeles be working on?

At the time, Kojima Productions producer Ken-ichiro Imaizumi also revealed the company was planning to open a studio in California, "if we can find the right people."

It seems the search is now out to find staffers for the Los Angeles-based Kojima Productions studio.

According to recent job listings, Kojima Production Los Angeles is looking for environment, character, and cinematic artists, as well as gameplay programmers, game level designers, and animators for its new Californian studio.

Most of the job descriptions make reference to a "3D action game", but Kojima Productions has not revealed any more details about what the Los Angeles studio will be working on.

Last month, Kojima himself unveiled the next chapter in the Metal Gear franchise, titled Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes. The game will run on the new Fox engine being built by Kojima Productions, and will reportedly be an open-world title targeted at "current generation specifications."

 @hippiesanta Actually the metal gear online FPS game was amazing if you were good at the game. Definitely not for the 'fast-paced no skill shooters' of todays world though.

 @parkurtommo i mean, did it worth enough if you working under high pressure and tight deadline, and you working more than 12 hour per day and that games is not your idea

 @Sylvaan  @hippiesanta "FPS"?  Really?  That's an overstatement for Metal Gear Online... it was anything but an FPS.

 

It was basically a "third person action/stealth game that you could play in first person but didn't work well at all"... like SOCOM
