Ghostwire: Tokyo hits PS5 and PC tomorrow, March 25th. Yep, even though the developer is now owned by Xbox, its latest game is a PS5 console exclusive, at launch, due to pre-existing arrangements. However, they're already working on a brand new game.
In an interview with Famitsu, transcribed by VGC, legendary Resident Evil director Shinji Mikami talked all things Tango Gameworks, his current studio. He spoke about Ghostwire plenty, but the developer also touched on what's next for Tango.
John Johanas, who directed the DLC for The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2, is working on a completely new title that is the complete opposite of horror [...] It’s a really good game, so keep your eyes peeled.
On that horror theme, Mikami also discussed how he believes Ghostwire "is not a horror game", and how the studio wants to shed its reputation as a team that "specialises only in survival horror".
Of course, it’s nice to have fans think of us as a studio with a reputation for developing survival horror games. But we also want to be viewed as a studio that can create a wider variety of games. We will be releasing more and more new games in the future, starting with Ghostwire: Tokyo, so please give us your support.
We will be supporting Ghostwire: Tokyo, once it hits Xbox that is. The game has a one-year console exclusivity period on PS5, meaning the game can come to Xbox Series X|S anytime from March 25th, 2023.
As Tango Gameworks is under Bethesda's wing, the developer is owned by Xbox, and Ghostwire: Tokyo's eventual Series X|S release will hit Game Pass on day one.
