Metal Gear Solid V was announced, or confirmed, this morning at GDC by Hideo Kojima himself. Ground Zeroes & The Phantom Pain combined make up MGS V.

The well known Japanese production company is setting up shop in the west coast. Kojima Productions recently posted job listings for their newly announced Los Angeles offices. The job listings include everything from animator to graphics engine programmer, just to name a few. Since it will be most likely spearheaded by twitter-happy Hideo Kojima, the job requirements look to be pretty straightforward, as most of the listings require the applicant to have worked on two previous titles.
No word on what the LA studio will be working on, but given the recent announcements at the Metal Gear 25th anniversary PAX panel, I can’t shake this feeling that it’s going to be something big. Not only will this cut down on the localization time of future Kojima Production titles, this may also be a clue to Mr. Kojima’s future plans for the Metal Gear series.
Kojima productions and Konami, along with invited guests, were on hand to celebrate Metal Gear’s 25th Anniversary at the Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle. Earlier that week, the celebration kicked off in Japan, which, besides Ground Zeroes, other announcements had been made.
A big THANKS! to the Konami, BM, and the Hard Rock Cafe staff for making this event one of my life’s top most memorable moments! Check after the jump for photos of the event, with more to come!

“We’re not going to say that it’s Metal Gear Solid 5,” Kojima said after the demo, “but it is a prologue.” Kojima also confirmed that the demo was running on PC hardware that was similarly equipped to PS3, and that the final game should closely resemble the demo video.
Kojima also confirmed that he is personally creating Ground Zeroes.
Konami’s Metal Gear 25th Anniversary event just finished in Tokyo, and revealed a ton of great news.
Mr. Kojima introduced the series’ first ever social media content, “METAL GEAR SOLID SOCIAL OPS,” talked about the series becoming a live-action Hollywood movie, and showed off new footage from “METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE,” the new title that brings an all-new METAL GEAR feel to the series with its focus on exhilarating action. Furthermore, the new game engine currently under development, “FOX ENGINE,” got its first unveiling worldwide in a live demonstration of “METAL GEAR.”
