Shinji Mikami's studio Tango Gameworks has unveiled the codename of their project: Zwei. Resident Evil creator goes back to the survival horror genre with this game in development. Along with the codename, a piece of art showing environments has been released but it's not intended to give any hints at what is in the game. Bethesda Softworks will publish the game but no date, no platforms announced yet.
Bethesda Softworks is pleased to announce that Tango Gameworks and director Shinji Mikami are working on a ‘survival horror’ game under the codename ‘Zwei’.
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.
“A true ‘survival horror’ game is one in which the player confronts and overcomes fear,” says Shinji Mikami, president and creative director for Tango Gameworks. “I've found my focus and once again I'm striving for pure survival horror. I am being very hands-on in the development of this game to ensure that the quality is there. Rest assured.”
@Sdarts: Gonna give that a look. DS3 sure felt totally different from 1 and 2. Very dissapointing for someone who loved the first 2 games. (55 minutes ago)

Not a surprise by any extent, but as far as I know, this is the first time a developer is so open about how a publisher's business decisions screwed a game and the franchise. (1 Hour ago)
Really great interview. Basically, EA made the decisions to turn DS3 into Action instead of Survival Horror, include microtransactions, have the big set pieces a la CoD, etc. It wasn't Visceral's. (1 Hour ago)
