Kojima Productions is staffing up for whatever might be next. Today the studio confirmed that its working on its next project, and that it's currently hiring for "best-in-class talent" to help.
On Twitter, the Kojima Productions handle links to the studio's career site, where it has openings for developers to go work at its Tokyo branch. This includes writing, several programming openings, sound design, and more. It's important to note that most of these jobs seem to require some level of fluency in Japanese, as well.
As for what the project actually is? That's still unknown, though it hasn't stopped Hideo Kojima from teasing what he's working on next. Earlier this year, he posted a few teasers about the work he's currently doing with long-time collaborator Yoji Shinkawa. It includes a small model of a baby and a mysterious ship emblazoned with, as fans have deciphered, the word "Bridges."
A Death Stranding follow-up certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility. Though it's only been a year since Kojima Productions' mind-bending delivery game came out, the story's conclusion certainly left some doors open for the future. Also, Kojima scanned a lot of famous faces for this project. That's too much fascinating, useful fodder for more bonkers Kojima cameos.
Whether we're all ready for the Kojima game press cycle to start up again or not is another story. Either way, there's something new in the works—possibly quite a few things, if an interview from earlier this year still holds true. I just hope there are some more baffling trailers to dissect over the coming years.
