Ex-2K Czech designer jumps to Kojipro

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.
