The lights are on
ZeniMax Media has announced the acquisition of Shinji Mikami's Tango Gameworks development studio. Mikami, best known for creating Resident Evil as well as newer games such as Vanquish, will develop games for ZeniMax's Bethesda Softworks.
“It’s refreshing to find a publisher who understands, trusts, and supports the development of blockbuster games and works to make it a collaborative effort,” said Mikami. “The library of AAA franchise titles ZeniMax owns speaks for itself. We are very excited to be joining ZeniMax and working with a company that is dedicated to creating the best games ever made.”
The deal follows last June's purchase of id Software and August's acquisition of Arkane Studios. Mikami will continue to run the company from Tokyo.
