VG247: "Zenimax just confirmed it’s bought Tango Gameworks and, with it, Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami."
. I thought Mikami's with Paltinum Games?
He's an external board member for PG.
Didn’t know you can "own" people these days, he can leave whenever he wants.
I know, when I first read the title I thought he had been purchased in a slave auction. lol
F U SCEJ, why didn't they make a move?
i don't like this one bit why you may ask? all i get from this is a stupid westernization vibe....
i can see it now vanquished morrowind edition
Oh you mean that now he will start making games about America and the Russian terrorist threat, with american characters and english as its main voices? Hum...
Wow didn't see this happening, lets just hope they let him make the games he wants to.
They bought a Japanese game company and on top of that.. LEGENDARY SHINJI MIKAMI. This gaming generation just got more interesting. -End statement
Dunno why you got disagrees. Buying Shinji is indeed a great move by them.
Whoa. That's HUGE!
Blegh zenimax fix fallout basterds.
How the hell did the buy him? Stupid title....however this is some interesting news. I wonder how much freedom they're going to give him? I wouldn't mind seeing a new horror title or a crazy over the top action one from SM using the Rage engine.
Whoa this is huge and awesome, now he has some major funding!
Zenimax have a dream team on their hands :Id, bethesda, and now shinji mikami.
They're probably going to buy Splash Damage after Brink too. That way they can keep on using Id Tech, because that'll prob be an inhouse only engine at Bethedsea now.
yeah that is who I was refering to down in the post below lol I just didn't want to say it.
That is a very good move for them. Adding Shinji to the ID and Bethesda mix is just plain great. I have also heard talk that they are not done yet.
Bayonetta 2 DAMN IT! lol
Bayonetta director is Hideo Kamiya's and not S.Mikami!Bayonetta 2 is secure and from the rumour is already in full development!
Nice! Zenimax is turning into one hell of a powerhouse!
so will his games be on that buggy engine?
is he still making vanquish!?
Zenimax just keep being more and more awesome.
