Xbox Japan is working with ‘top-notch developers’ on a ‘revolutionary’ product

Xbox is apparently getting big on games made in Japan.

Earlier today, Xbox Japan Publishing Manager Matt Smith posted the tweet directly below, proclaiming that his team in the region is “growing”. Not only that, but Smith claims he works with “top-notch developers” in Japan, pointing to “groundbreaking” projects underway.

Right now, of course, it’s a bit difficult to gauge what the Xbox Japan release team might actually be working on. Job listings provided by Smith in follow-up tweets also don’t paint a clearer picture, with the posting manager announcing that the roles of Senior Technical Producer, Software Engineer, Senior Software Engineer and senior game design engineer are all open.

There isn’t really any information to guess which developers Xbox might be working with, but to some extent that’s just the secretive nature of the games industry. Right now, it’s worth noting that Xbox is overseeing Shinji Mikami’s Tango Gameworks, having acquired parent company Bethesda last year (Mikami is even reportedly appearing alongside Xbox boss Phil Spencer during a presentation at Tokyo Game Show last year).

Smith’s tweet could therefore very well refer to what is happening at Tango Gameworks. Mikami himself has spoken about his desire to develop smaller games and also revealed during the aforementioned Xbox stream at TGS that The Evil Within 2 director John Johanas is working on something brand new. Whether that’s the case or Xbox has found a brand new studio to work with in Japan, we can only wait and see.
