what do you guys think about this being mikami last game.could it be possibe that this will actually be his last series.it woul be incredible if this game gets great reviews and does huge sales keeping mikami around many more years in the industry with tango and bethesda bringing us the evil within 2 and the evil within 3.one last survival horror trilogy from mikami would simply be amazing.

I'm not against anything, though it's far too early to judge. For one we don't know how the game will end or what kind of story it'll tell. It could be detrimental to follow up, sometimes that's the case with well told stories that come to an actual end.

First of all it is too soon to make this kind of speculation. Second, I don´t buy the whole "last Mikami" game thing. When he announced this was going to be his last game as director it was before Zenimax bought Tango Gameworks. I presume that since Zenimax is the one providing the money for Tango they are the ones that will ultimately decide if this is truly Mikami´s last game. If the feel that having Shinji Mikami´s name on the box will help their sales they will surely do it.

Bethesda keep referring to this as a "franchise" so its not far fetched.
Then again, Bethesda expect this to sell 1 million units in Japan, so maybe they're overambitious in regards to the game's future.

We don't know much about this game, but I can definitely see it being a good series as long as they don't lose their vision. Having said that, Mikami DID say that getting the horror right in this game is pretty hard, and that it's hard to scare players these days because they become accustomed to the scare tactics people use in games and movies. It could be pretty difficult to come up with new things that continue to scare people for three games in a row.

Even if The Evil Within was just a successful one-off game, it would all be worth it if game developers saw it and were inspired to create more survival horror games because they're enjoyed and are profitable. The big developer I have in mind is Capcom, which I'm sure you all knew that lol

It'll be like RE: first one is great, the other ones will be worse and worse with every iteration.

I hope it will be like RE, because the first one was great, the second and third was even better. but please end it at TEW 3 (sarcasm).
