Hideo Kojima just can't quit Metal Gear. While "Metal Gear Solid 5" has yet to be officially announced, Kojima Productions has announced it is seeking developers for the "next" Metal Gear Solid title. The studio has announced it will be attending Game Developer's Conference next month "to search for skillful engineers, artists, and game creators." Excitingly, Kojima Productions has confirmed work on "the latest Metal Gear Solid targeted for high-end consoles and PC." Kojima Productions is seeking help in both Japan and California, suggesting the next MGS will be an internationally-developed affair. In addition to engineers, job listings include a brand manager position, responsible for ensuring Metal Gear is a "global mega-hit franchise in all regions." The site even includes concept art of what is likely to be the next game in the series.

Is this Metal Gear Solid 5?

"We were in a situation where we had to start planning for MGS5. So I started coming up with several ideas," Kojima previously said about a future game in the franchise. "I had several ideas for a game featuring The Boss and the Cobra Unit during the invasion of Normandy."

      If it's a Big Boss game, it's probably going to be on a portable. Probably a Vita title this time. It's likely not going to be MGS5. Maybe PO3.

        That doesn't say "a Big Boss game," it mentions "The Boss," not Big Boss.

      "targeted for high-end consoles and PC."

      shouldn't this read

      "targeted for consoles and high-end PCs."

      what is a high-end console?

        It's a polite way of saying "Not on any Nintendo system"

          I'm guessing if development is only just starting, we're looking at next-gen systems.

          I think it's more a way of saying next gen. I'd be surprised if it wasn't available on WiiU.

      What about fixing MGS2 for PC? That game was unplayable a few months after release due to glitches...

        The problems MGS2 for PC has are easily fixed without Konami's assistance.
