Remember Bethesda's shockingly awful E3 2019 press conference? One of the event's only highlights was seeing the enthusiastic Ikumi Nakamura take to the stage and introduce the intriguing looking GhostWire Tokyo. The creative director won over the hearts of many with her obvious passion, but as it turns out, Nakamura is actually leaving developer Tango Gameworks.
Based on what we know, Nakamura has played a pivotal role in crafting GhostWire Tokyo thus far. She's credited as creative director, story writer, and scenario writer, as well as concept artist. In short, it sounds like GhostWire is largely her project. The fact that she's now leaving it behind makes us wonder what'll become of it. After all, we haven't actually seen the game in action yet; aside from a CG trailer, Nakamura is the only connection we have to the title.
What do you make of this? Are you sad to see Nakamura go? Wish her all the best in the comments section below.
annnnd The game will become Cancel...
Must’ve been because Bethesda wanted to monetize the hell out of it and she’s like “nah, peace out”.
Damn. I'm pretty hyped for Ghostwire, so I'm hoping development will stay on track. And good luck to Ikumi.
There's a story here...
Japan Studio should hire her to work on a new Siren project. Based on her resume she excels very much in atmosphere and environmental designs.
That's unfortunate.... More presentations need her charm.
I'm guessing another company has hired her after seeing her performance and passion at E3. Smart move.
Cancel ghostwire tokyo and hype fallout-76. I will never buy a Bethesda game ever. Worse than ea
bethesda forcing her to add microtransaction on her game
Lol her e3 performance actually put me off towards the game. Thought it was a bit over the top if you ask me. Over enthusiastic I guess, but hey I never had to go pitch a game to a giant Japanese audience so I'll give her props for bravery.
Wish her the very best but hope this doesn't affect Ghostwire Tokyo, absolutely loved the teaser trailer.
I think this is pretty big. This is highly unusual. I can't help but feel there is something more going on in the background here.
It's a shame she's leaving the game. She's an interesting and jolly personality in the industry. I look forward to seeing where she goes next.
