After its series The Evil Within, Tango Gameworks hopes to change its image with Ghostwire: Tokyo and announces that it wants to do something other than survival-horror. The next project will even be “the opposite”.
It’s the midlife crisis for Tango Gameworks. The Japanese studio, subsidiary of Xbox Game Studios, looked in the mirror one morning and did not appreciate the labels stuck to his skin. Known for the series The Evil Withinthe developer recently released Ghostwire: Tokyo and took the opportunity to chat with VGC of his aspirations in life.
In the interview with Shinji Mikamithe founder, the latter explains that he wants to change the image that the public has of his company.
I hope to end up changing the image Tango Gameworks currently has. For now, we are still perceived as a studio specializing only in survival horror. Of course, it’s nice that fans see us as a reputable studio for developing these kinds of games. But we also want to be seen as a studio capable of creating a wider variety of games.. We’ll be releasing more and more new games in the future, starting with Ghostwire: Tokyo, so please support us.
Mikami-san recalls that his GWT is not specifically horror oriented but more to be considered as an action-adventure title. That said, after two very good horror games that made the success of the studio, this latest creation has received slightly more divided opinions. On VGR, the game still received a good rating.
The director of The Evil Within 2, John Johanas, for example, is on a new project. And the latter will certainly not The Evil Within 3 since he shouldn’t not be a survival horror. “It’s even the opposite of the horror genre.” Tango soon on a party-game with pink and yellow stuffed animals?
