The lights are on
At the end of a panel about Metal Gear’s Fox engine, Kojima Productions announced that it would be opening up a new studio located in L.A.
Kojima Production Japanese Studio was initially formed back in 2005 in order to relieve Kojima of the business management aspects of game design. Konami must be pleased with the internal company's work, because they’ve decided to open up a new office in the U.S.
Kojima Productions didn’t talk about what the new team would be working on, but they did say that its goal will be the same as the Japanese studios: to build surprising and exciting products that are high value entertainment. It will be interesting to see what kinds of game this new studio, set inside of a new culture, ends up producing.
The studio will be opening in the Hurcules Campus in Playa Vista, Los Angeles, and will be 30,000 square feet and include a testing room and a screening room. They’re hiring! So if you’re looking for a job, prep your resume and stay posted for more details on the company's website. Unfortunately, they are not hiring at Moby Dick studios.
