Ex-2K Czech designer jumps to Kojipro

Friday, 19th April 2013 05:39 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Here’s an interesting little blip; Kojima Productions has hired Jordan Amaro, formerly of the IGDA, 2K Czech and Crytek UK, as a designer on Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain. The young developer has credits as a level mission designer on an unannounced 2K Czech game – presumably Mafia 3 – and as a designer on Homefront 2. He joined Kojima productions in March; it’s not clear how senior his role is. MGS 5: The Phantom Pain is expected on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, although nobody knows when or whether it will come to other formats or even how many games it is.

Thanks, Junichi.

    Bizzare! I’m actually friends with Jordan. He never told me this, sly dog :p

    So, what happened with Joakim Mogren and his Moby Dick studio?

    That was a marketing stunt to get people talking about TPP and link it to MGS5, developed for two years. The studio and Joakim was all a part of that marketing stunt and don’t exist.

    Yeah, I know. I’m just wondering if Kojima denied or not the fact that the whole thing was staged.
