Kojima Productions, Konami's game development studio helmed by Kojima, launched a recruitment page on Wednesday for the "next" Metal Gear Solid project. The 65th issue of the United Kingdom's official PlayStation magazine also published an interview with Kojima on November 29. The designer discussed his past and future game projects including plans for a new Metal Gear Solid 5 game.
