Project Zwei to be Shinji Mikami’s Last Directing Project
Earlier this year, it was announced that Mikami was working on a new survival horror project codenamed Zwei. He is developing the “true survival horror game” with his company, Tango Gameworks, and will be published by Bethesda. Since its announcement, though, we haven’t really heard any other news about the project. Until today, that is.
It was recently revealed that Zwei will be Mikami’s last work in the games industry as a director. What this really means, I don’t know. He’s served as writer, producer, executive producer, executive director, creative producer, advisor, executive advisor, supervisor, background modeler, and just straight up designer on over two dozen games. This could mean that after Zwei he will be handing off the reigns to someone else and just work as a producer or designer. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Still no word on release date or platforms for Zwei.
