Tango Gameworks announces survival-horror project, codenamed “Zwei”

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.

Here on the blog, we’ll keep you posted on the latest developments from Tango. You can also follow them on their official website, Twitter, and Facebook. Those interested in applying at Tango should visit the ZeniMax job page.

  1. Excellent news! I think that the best Resi games are the ones Mikami developed, much greater elements of survival horror than Resi 5, ORC or Resi 6 (will have). In fact, I could save my money from Resi 6 and buy this instead…

  2. okay will you please consider this..i talked to the guy and i think he would love to have his music featured in your game! Well it was my thought at first cause I noticed how much the 2 just seemed like they would match from the photos above,and I think you will be very pleased with how much it will probably fit and help create a world ,I think your trying to to do,so please consider it,and check his music out,it’s absalutely perfect for it…thank you,and can’t wait to hear a reply on my twitter if you don’t mind,the email will work fine!
