Ghostwire: Tokyo Studio Next Game (Hi-Fi Rush) Announcement Teased By Leaker

Tango Gameworks, the studio behind Ghostwire: Tokyo and The Evil Within games, may be gearing up to reveal its next project soon, at least if a new report from notable leaker Billbilkun is correct.

According to Billbilkul, who also recently leaked the Steam release date of GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition, the Ghostwire: Tokyo studio will announce (and also release) its next title soon, presumably at the upcoming Xbox Developer Direct Event

This next game from Tango Gameworks is reportedly called Hi-Fi Rush, internally known as Project Hibiki, and is a third-person sci-fi shooter similar in size and scope to Obisidian's Pentiment. Billbilikun suggests that the game will have a standard and deluxe edition and an ESRB Teen rating.

According to a Resetera post, Hi-Fi Rush was trademarked by Zenimax two years ago for mobile and consoles. Rand al Thor of the XB2 Podcast recently also hinted at the possibility of Hi-Fi Rush launching in 2023, which means it's been in development for quite some time.

The Shinji Mikami-led studio released Ghostwire: Tokyo in the spring of 2021, and fans have been eager to know what the studio has been working on next.

In an interview with Famitsu in 2022, as transcribed by VGC, Mikami revealed that the studio wants to work on smaller titles as well. He also confirmed that The Evil Within 2 director, John Johanas, is currently working on a new project "that is the complete opposite of horror." Perhaps, Hi-Fi Rush is that title?

Either way, fans won't have to wait much longer to find out, as the Xbox Developer Direct is on the horizon.
