Kojima Productions Hiring for 'Next Generation' of MGS

Kojima Productions is ramping up its hiring efforts, ensuring a long future for the Metal Gear Solid series. Adriasang reports that a new set of Japanese job listings from the company are seeking the "next generation Metal Gear Solid series production staff."

The wide swath of available positions includes general planners, level designers, various programmers, and CG designers. While the level designers and programming positions may be building the crew for crunch time on Metal Gear Solid Rising, the planner openings and "next generation" verbiage imply that more Metal Gear Solid games are in the works.

It's hard to say how a next generation MGS game might look. Solid Snake quietly retired in Metal Gear Solid 4, and Kojima Productions has been highlighting other heroes since. At this point the next game after Rising could star Raiden, Big Boss, or someone else entirely.

    I wouldn't mind seeing a remake of the first two metal gear games.

      I wouldn't mind seeing all of them released on the PC. And remakes are always nice too.

      that would b cool as long as nothing changes just the graphics and gameplay exp. I rather see a remake of the game boy version where he went to zanzibar and fought grey fox but put in this gens graphics and etc.
