Kojima Productions is using Hansoft's project management and QA software, the company said today. The software system, which is designed to support agile and lean software development, is now in use across the entire studio.
"We initially started using Hansoft among a select group of managers on our team," explains Yuji Korekado, production manager at the Metal Gear house. He says that Hansoft's interface and find/report tools in particular worked well enough in the select group that the studio soon deployed Hansoft throughout its internal operations.
Calling it a "magnificent tool", Korekado said Hansoft is ideal for "large-scale projects with teams of over 100 people." Kojima Productions is currently known to be at work on Metal Gear Solid: Rising.
