Bethesda and developer Tango Gameworks’ upcoming action-horror title Ghostwire: Tokyo has been rated in Korea, suggesting that a big announcement, info drop or release date is on its way. The game was previously given a Spring 2022 release window, but that may change very soon.
As reported by Gematsu, Ghostwire: Tokyo has received a rating in Korea. Usually, games are rated shortly before a big information drop or announcement of some kind. Fans are hopeful this means that the game will finally get a release date as Spring 2022 draws near.
Ghostwire: Tokyo was first unveiled at Bethesda’s E3 2019 conference, with former director Ikumi Nakamura taking the stage to announce the mysterious title. Despite coming from Tango Gameworks who have a knack for horror titles such as The Evil Within, Ghostwire: Tokyo will instead be much more action-heavy with an emphasis on adventure and exploration, despite its horror-based narrative.
Produced by Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, Ghostwire: Tokyo will see players face off against an assortment of Japanese urban legends and myths. Using magical abilities from a first-person perspective, players will encounter various monsters and nightmares rooted in Japanese culture and horror stories.
While Xbox currently owns Tango Gameworks as part of their Bethesda acquisition (who serve as the studio’s publishers), Ghostwire: Tokyo will be a console exclusive to PS5 for at least one year before making its way to Xbox Series X/S. The same deal was struck with last year’s Game of the Year nominee Deathloop from Arkane Studios.
This rating is a good indication that we’ll hear something very soon about the game, though it’s likely that we’ll receive a release date and hopefully another trailer.
Ghostwire: Tokyo releases in Spring 2022 for PS5 and PC.
