Rockville, Md. – Video game publisher ZeniMax Media
announced on Thursday that it will acquire Tango Gameworks, whose founder
Shinji Mikami was the creator of the "Resident Evil" game series.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Tango will continue to
be led by Mikami, who will serve as creative lead on all future projects, which
will be published by ZeniMax’s Bethesda Softworks unit.
ZeniMax raised $150 million earlier this month, in a financing round led by
Providence Equity Partners.
The company also owns development studios including
id Software and Arkane Studios.
