Kojima Productions confirms that they're looking to open a new studio in California. A tweet from senior producer Kenichiro Imaizumi says that they're looking to set up shop in The Golden State, but only if they "can find the right people."
Kojima is hiring all kinds, with the most recent job listings asking for project engineers for the latest Metal Gear Solid game for "high-end consoles and PC." Develop says that they're also looking for engineers to help with the FOX Engine as well as programmers, audio folks, and artists for concept and characters.
If you've always dreamed of making a MGS game, Konami will have a booth in the career pavilion at GDC next month that you should visit.
