Konami drops big hints on Metal Gear Solid 5

Hideo Kojima is the videogame industry’s go-to-guy for a good tease. But the most recent hints that Metal Gear Solid 5 is in development aren’t so much teases as a full on confirmation.

The Kojima Productions website has posted up job ads featuring the one and only (actually there’s four of them) Snake. The first image is a bit of a giveaway, with the caption “Big Boss wants YOU! The ‘Next’ MGS”, complete with a picture of the legend himself. Another picture of what we can only presume is also Big Boss can be found on the next page, complete with a trusty mutt at his side.

KP are looking for engineers to work on next generation hardware on the FOX engine, suggesting that this could be a PS4/next Xbox title, along with a brand manager and a product engineer. Those interested can go and visit Konami’s booth at GDC this year. Hopefully we’ll be hearing more details about this project around then.
