Bethesda and parent company ZeniMax Media Inc have acquired Tango Gameworks, meaning reknowned developer Shinji Mikami is joining the Bethesda family.

"It's refreshing to find a publisher who understands, trusts, and supports the development of blockbuster games and works to make it a collaborative effort," said Shinji Mikami.

"The library of AAA franchise titles ZeniMax owns speaks for itself. We are very excited to be joining ZeniMax and working with a company that is dedicated to creating the best games ever made."

Mikami will continue to lead Tango Gameworks as the creative director for all future projects.

"Shinji Mikami has earned a stellar reputation as one of the industry's finest game developers," said Robert Altman, Chairman and CEO of ZeniMax Media.

Shinji Mikami is most well known for having created the Resident Evil franchise as well work on Devil May Cry. His latest foray includes Vanquish which released last week.

"He has repeatedly created hit titles that have earned praise from fans and critics around the world. We share his vision for innovative, genre-defining games and look forward to working with Shinji and his team at Tango."
