Konami Begins Hiring for New Metal Gear Series Already

By   /   Mar 20, 2015

In light of the recent news bomb of Metal Gear Solid series creator Hideo Kojima parting ways with the franchise and Konami once Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is completed, the publisher has issued a press release today to assure fans that the studio has no plans to end the series right here.

That’s right. Konami has just confirmed that it plans to create a new Metal Gear series once it is done with Phantom Pain. For this new project, the studio is already recruiting new staff members – people with experience working in high end game development, who are insanely creative, have passion for games, and of course come with good communication skills.

While fans would find it hard to imagine a new Metal Gear series without the involvement of icon Kojima, it has to be asked whether this decision had something to do with him taking his leave.

Rumors tell of an ongoing “power struggle.” Perhaps Kojima found the prospect of a new Metal Gear series nauseating and saw Konami butchering his beloved franchise, when he has clearly stated that the story of Snake will conclude with Phantom Pain.

The press release makes no mention of whether this new series will be set in the same universe or not.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will release on September 1 for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. It will arrive on PC a week later.
