Ghostwire: Tokyo started out as The Evil Within 3

Last week, Bethesda finally unveiled an extended look at Ghostwire: Tokyo. The game is a first-person horror action experience that's coming to PC and PlayStation 5 on March 25, 2022. Despite the fact that Microsoft now owns Bethesda — and Japanese developer Tango Gameworks — Xbox Series X|S owners will have to wait a year for the timed exclusivity agreement to run out, just like for Deathloop. Both games are expected to hit Xbox Game Pass once this period ends.

Tango Gameworks is known for The Evil Within series, and Ghostwire: Tokyo originally started out as The Evil Within 3. A report by GameSpot provided more details.

When Ghostwire: Tokyo was first announced ... former creative director Ikumi Nakamura said it was not going to be a survival-horror game like Tango Gameworks' ... The Evil Within and The Evil Within 2. However, the ... action-adventure game actually began its life as The Evil Within 3, and some of that game's essence lives on in the paranormal first-person action of Ghostwire: Tokyo.

Before Ghostwire: Tokyo, Tango Gameworks had only worked on The Evil Within and no other games. It's good for a studio to develop other franchises because it triggers creativity. Judging by the gameplay, Ghostwire: Tokyo has an abundance of it from its visuals to gameplay.
