Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami still wants to make at least one more game


Shinji Mikami, who you probably know as a veteran developer of classic games like Resident Evil, God Hand, Vanquish, Dino Crisis and many more, still wants to make “another game”. Just don’t expect it to show up any time soon.

In an interview with VG247, Mikami noted that despite the fact that he has recently handed over management duties to other employees of his studio Tango Gameworkshe would still like to return to the director’s chair for another game.

At 56, Mikami has been developing video games for over three decades, and he explained that he intentionally founded Tango Gameworks “with the aim of creating a studio that will give a chance to young and talented authors.”

But this does not mean that he does not want to take the reins of government into his own hands at some point. He explained that his plans include making a “last game” before he retires. “We don’t want him to say this is his last game,” Zenimax producer Masato Kimura added in an interview, before clarifying that whatever Tango does next, Mikami will not be at the helm. The veteran’s plans are somewhat more distant.

Let’s hope Tokyo: Ghostwire’s release on PS5 on March 25 is successful enough to nudge him into action sooner rather than later. It’s worth noting that Tango Gameworks is part of Bethesda, which was bought by Microsoft for $7.5 billion in 2020. So it’s likely that any new game Mikami creates will be exclusive to the Xbox platform. Maybe we will see the spiritual successor of Dino Crisis?
