Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami is leaving Tango Gameworks after 12 years with the developer

Senior Vice President of Development at Bethesda Todd Vaughn has announced that the Tango Gameworks' founder and CEO Shinji Mikami is leaving the company. In the past 12 years, Shinji Mikami serves as a creative leader and supportive mentor to young developers at Tango on the Evil Within franchise, Ghostwire: Tokyo, and Hi-Fi Rush.

Also, Vaughn says in the email that "Hi-Fi Rush" was one of the most successful launches for Bethesda and Xbox in recent years, where it generated significant positive momentum for the business and Tango.

Bethesda also confirmed Mikami's departure in a statement to True Achievements, saying, "We wish Mikami-san well in the future and are excited by what lies ahead for the talented developers at Tango."

Tango Gameworks will continue to support Ghostwire: Tokyo and Hi-Fi Rush while Bethesda officials discuss with Tango leadership the studio's future plans. What are your opinions on Shinji Mikami's decision to leave Tango Gameworks? Will he take a new step in his long career or retirement?
