Bethesda has officially confirmed today that Tango Gameworks founder Shinji Mikami will be leaving the studio “in the coming months.” No explanation was immediately given for his departure but the statement wished him well.
Thank you Mikami-san @shinji_mikami for your leadership and your great contributions to the industry. Your guidance and input over the last 2 years has been valuable to me. Looking forward to our continued friendship and looking forward to what lies ahead for @tango_jpn https://t.co/RFP6HRUpj8— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) February 23, 2023
The departure of Shinji Mikami from Tango Gameworks is a bit of a surprise considering the recent successful release of Hi-Fi Rush, but without official word from Mikami himself as of this writing it is hard to draw any conclusions.
