Tango Gameworks isn’t only developing Ghostwire Tokyo, as Studio Head Shinji Mikami confirmed the team is also working on a new game. This came up during Microsoft’s Xbox TGS 2021 presentation. The only specific detail that came up about it involved one person who is working on it. John Johanas is involved in its development.

So far, Johanas worked on two games for Tango Gameworks in addition to this new title. First, he was a part of the development team for the original The Evil Within. Then, he served as the director for The Evil Within 2. Both games are survival horror titles.

The next Tango Gameworks title will be Ghostwire Tokyo. In it, players will deal with supernatural forces in Tokyo. It is a first-person game, where people will use kuji-kiri hand gestures to deal with the spirits they’ll meet. The PS5 version will also make use of the DualSense controller, allowing people to experience a “sixth sense” as they play through the game.

Ghostwire Tokyo will show up on the PS5 and PC in 2022. This followed a COVID-19 pandemic-related delay, as Tango Gameworks committed to prioritizing the health of its employees. There are no further details about the new Tango Gameworks game yet.
