Bethesda working on new horror title codenamed "Zwei."

Horror master Shinji Mikami and his company Tango Gameworks is working with Bethesda Softworks on a brand new survival horror title that currently has the code name "Zwei."

Zwei is, of course, the German word for the number two, but there's no known connection between that fact and the game itself - as far as I can ascertain.

All we know right now is that Shinji Mikami is committed to making the game a realization of pure survival horror.  It will be the kind of game that pushes the limits of fear and exhilaration.     

“A true ‘survival horror’ game is one in which the player confronts and overcomes fear,” says Shinji Mikami, president and creative director for Tango Gameworks. “I've found my focus and once again I'm striving for pure survival horror. I am being very hands-on in the development of this game to ensure that the quality is there. Rest assured.” 
 
Below you'll find you find a pair of images that show what kind tone and direction the game's production is taking (along with a pair of Shinji Makami publicity shots or something.  So if you don't know what he looks like, there you go.)  

There's no word yet on any kind of release window or potential platforms, but we'll certainly keep you abreast of further developments.
