A recent job listing on Gamasutra, Kojima Productions is looking for a Gameplay Programmer. According to the job listing, the position’s main work duties include “defining and developing the technology, systems and tools programming for the core foundation of 3D action game.”
The job listing also notes that the programmer will be working for them in the Los Angeles area. PlayStationLifeStyle.net’s Alex Osborn wrote about the listing, and presents a possible project the new studio will be working on Zone of Enders 3, where Osborn explains that the title has been promised by Kojima to his fans.
Another likely possibility is Metal Gear Solid 5, since the team at Japan is hard at work on Ground Zeroes. Osborn also noted that “it’s safe to assume the game will be built on the FOX Engine and likely be a next-gen title.”
Although it’s possible the team in Los Angeles will work on Metal Gear Solid 5, it isn’t nearly as likely as the next Zone of Enders title, as Kojima is typically a big part of the production of any Metal Gear game.
