Working on brand-new IP “loaded with dark jokes”.

Ikumi Nakamura, the previous Tango Gameworks lead designer who took the program at Bethesda’s E3 2019 interview, has actually established her own indie studio.

Nakamura revealed she had actually left Tango after a nine-year stint back in September 2019, triggering surprise from fans just months after her on-stage look. Since then, Nakamura has actually visited other studios and handled freelance work – such as designing some creepy Rainbow Six Siege skins.

Now, in a 17-minute Cutscenes documentary, Nakamura has actually validated she has actually chosen to open her own “little studio” and deal with her own task as an imaginative director (thanks, Play Diaries).

In the video, Nakamura describes her choice to leave Tango Gameworks as being because of disease, which she had problem with “for a long time”.

“Back in the Capcom days, my elders would be sleeping under their desks to make video games,” Nakamura stated. “They were enthusiastic to that point.

“Although that wasn’t the case any longer, when you get concepts and operate in a group, there can be some issues that include it, it showed up to the point it got on my health. You can’t make video games if you’re not healthy. I started wondering whether there wasn’t a way for me to make video games while feeling much better. I took the choice to give up prior to it was far too late.”

Meanwhile, Ghostwire: Tokyo is lastly due to launch in October this year, as a timed-exclusive for PlayStation platforms – regardless of Tango’s current purchase as part of Microsoft’s huge Bethesda buyout.
