In an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, Tango Gameworks executive producer Shinji Mikami announced that the studio’s first project, codenamed “Zwei”, will return Mikami-san (the creator of Resident Evil) to the survival-horror genre.
Here’s the official statement posted on Tango’s website.
Our latest project’s codename is “Zwei” and it is a survival horror game.
The above image is a collage of different environments we put together for this announcement and is intended to give a feel for the tone and the direction the production is taking. (However, neither the code name nor the image is intended to tell you exactly what is in the game.)
As a master of the ‘survival horror’ genre, Shinji Mikami is committed to making a game that is the realization of pure survival horror, an experience which he defines as one that pushes the limits of fear and exhilaration. He and his team at Tango are committed to attaining this vision.
