Several job advertisements have appeared on Gamasutra’s job seekers page under the Konami Group. Kojima Productions is looking for talented individuals to help it establish a new studio based in Los Angeles.
Several jobs are listed which include environment artist, character artist, gameplay programmer and animator. Clearly the studio is looking to create games at the new studio but whether it aims to create new IPs or aid the production of projects already under development is unclear.
Kojima Productions are soon to release Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, developed by Platinum Games, and have also recently announced the development of a new Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.
