Hideo Kojima, easily the master of cryptic announcements, has revealed that Kojima Productions are hiring personnel for a new project that's in the works.
"Kojima Productions confirms a new project is in development and is looking to hire the best-in-class talent to work out of our Tokyo studio. For more information on the openings and requirements, please visit our website", the studio tweeted out today.
Unfortunately, that's where the information train stops as Kojima Productions didn't give so much as a hint on what genre do we expect, or even what the game is about.
Digging into the job openings doesn't reveal much either, other than writers benefitting from experience on manga and/or novels, which isn't much of a clue. Kojima has gone on record earlier saying he'd love to do a horror game, but that's as much as we've heard of it.
Kojima Productions' last game, Death Stranding, was the first post-Konami game for Kojima and started off as a PlayStation 4 exclusive, before branching out to the rest of the platforms.
Its success is undeniable at this point, with sales hitting enviable numbers from the USA to Japan, although we don't know what to tell you about the critical consensus. Being review bombed on Metacritic definitely didn't help, but Death Stranding is either lauded as a complete masterpiece or dismissed as utter trash - we've seen very few, if any, reviews that were down the middle.
Whether Kojima is planning on another star-studded title for PlayStation 5 is anyone's guess at this point, but we wouldn't be betting on it just yet. It looks like a great time to bet on both horses, so again - it's Kojima's turn.
