Resident Evil Creator Returning to Survival Horror With 'Zwei'
Written Wednesday, April 25, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami has taken a long hiatus away from the survival horror genre, having been Director on the series' reinvention with Resident Evil 4. Since then, Mikami has worked on God Hand, Vanquish and Shadows of the Damned, but now he's set to return to survival horror.
Famitsu [via Andriasang] reports that Mikami is working on his first project with Tango Gameworks - the studio he founded that was picked up by Zenimax in 2010 - and it's apparently codenamed 'Zwei'. As you'll know, Zwei is the German word for two, but Mikami says that the codename has no connection with the game's content.
Shinji Mikami is taking up duties as Executive Director on Zwei, which he reckons will be coming to HD consoles, although platforms have yet to be confirmed. There are no further details or a release window for the game yet either, but that's because it's early days for Zwei. Stay tuned.
