A heavily modified external engine is powering Mikami-san's new game, but he wouldn't divulge what. Does external include other ZeniMax-controlled studios? No game details yet.
Beyond 100 employees, communication and responsibility begin to strain within a developer, noted Shinji Mikami. ZeniMax Asia's GM reckons it'll be big in Japan.
Toru Takahashi wants Tango Gameworks title to be Bethesda's greatest hit in Japan yet. While The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim cleared 200k to 300k copies, he wants somewhere between 500k and a million. Shinji Mikami directed Vanquish from PlatinumGames before forming his new studio, and co-created Shadows of the Damned.
Mikami-san has sworn this will be his last video game as director - he wants young blood to lead. Let's all hope that whatever comes out of Tango Gameworks it's worthy of such an iconic industry veteran.
Shinji Mikami's Tango Gameworks now at 65 devs
