This isn't really "PT" news, but, since the battle against Kojima/Konami were the biggest issue that made the game get cancelled..
"Sony just made it official: former Konami superstar (and Metal Gear creator) Hideo Kojima has grown a beard. Oh, and formed a new studio, which is working with Sony on a PlayStation 4 exclusive.
It’s not a Sony studio; it’s an independent team, which will be known as...Kojima Productions. The deal announces that Kojima Productions’ “first software title [is] a console exclusive to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system.”
Here’s their very swank new logo:
The announcement brings to an end one of the most long-winded and bizarre sagas in the history of the video game industry (which you can catch up on below if you need a refresher).

Yeah, read all this on IGN. I'm glad he's finally parted ways with Konami, but looks as if he's making some kind of game involving mechs for his first project, so I'll more than likely be passing. Hopefully that idea he and Del Toro had for a horror game gets made at some point.
Mech or mechs (Japanese: Meka?) could still mean mechanical, especially since vehicle artists are called mechanical artists in Japan. They're usually responsible for anything mechanical (robots, cars, or clocks, etc).
The bottom line is that we will not know for certain until the game is closer to being revealed. The Animator job listing mentioned "monster, etc" animations, for example.
