Death Stranding has turned 1 and Kojima Productions does not want to rest on its laurels thanks to the success of the title. The team is now hiring for a brand new project, and job announcements indicate that this new game will be set in the modern era complete with mechs. But could it be Death Stranding 2 instead?

Kojima Productions has officially announced that it is starting the development of a brand new video game. For this, the studio is hiring programmers, designers, producers, and managers.

” Do you have a passion for development, and enthusiasm for the future of games, and also great teamwork skills? If so, we want you to join us. KOJIMA PRODUCTIONS can officially reveal that a new project is in development and we are looking to expand our team with a number of new roles. “

While most of these announcements are generic and offer no new hints about the nature of the next game, a couple of them reveal what we’ll see in this title.

Apparently, the game will be set in a modern era with vehicles, firearms and mechas.

” Production of 3D models of weapons, gadgets, vehicles, mecha, etc. Knowledge and experience in producing a wide range of animations, not limited to people, such as vehicles, mechas, and monsters “, read among the required skills.

Mecha is an area of ​​expertise of Hideo Kojima as Metal Gear Solid offers a huge variety of mechas. Death Stranding, however, does not fall into this category. However, it is possible that the potential sequel could add elements of this type.

Maybe Hideo Kojima will make a surprise announcement during The Game Awards 2020 ceremony, what do you think?
