‘Resident Evil’ Remake Artist Joins Mikami’s ‘Project Zwei’

It’s been pretty quiet in the six months since Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami first teased his upcoming survival game simply titled “Projtct Zwei.” What little we knew then isn’t all that far from what we know now, namely its genre, that it’s been in development since 2010, and that Bethesda will be publishing it upon release.

Well, add to that news that the game has gotten more talent on board with the addition of the lead CGI artist for the 2002 Gamecube remake of Resident Evil.

The announcement didn’t immediately make clear the name of the artist from Resident Evil joining the Tango Gameworks team in developing “Project Zwei” but credited the remake with being “widely considered one of the most atmospheric titles of all time.”

“Project Zwei” will serve as Mikami’s swan song to directing games and according to a post on the tentatively-titled project’s site, Mikami is making his exit as the survival horror genre which he helped create “is [losing its] footing in a market otherwise crowded by mainstream appeal titles.”

No platform details are available yet for “Project Zwei,” but we can expect it sometime in the latter part of 2013.
