It won't be too much longer for Bethesda's partnership with Tango Gameworks to bear some fruit. Today, the publisher finally announced what Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami has been working on: The Evil Within. The new survival horror title is currently slated for release on Xbox 360, PS3, PC and next-gen consoles sometime in 2014.
"We're incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within," Mikami said. "My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action."
Resident Evil, as a franchise, has sold over 50 million units for Capcom. While that video game staple has gotten a bit long in the tooth, Bethesda is hoping to capitalize on the genre with a fresh take from Mikami. Bethesda has excelled at single-player games that sell well, like Skyrim and Dishonored, and it's possible that The Evil Within will remain single-player as well - although there's no indication one way or another on that just yet.
Bethesda has issued a two-minute teaser trailer. Unfortunately, it's all live-action, but it at least sets the tone for Mikami's title.
