Private Division has built up a solid track record of working with indie studios and publishing indie titles, having most recently launched Roll7’s OlliOlli World (shortly after having acquired the studio), and has now announced publishing partnerships with four more indie studios- Die Gute Fabrik, Evening Star, Piccolo Studio, and Yellow Brick Games.
Die Gute Fabrik, based in Cologne, is working on a new story-driven game and wants to “push the boundaries of what games can be”. Meanwhile, Evening Star in Los Angeles, which last worked with Sega on Sonic Mania Plus, is working on its own unannounced 3D action platformer utilizing their proprietary Star Engine.
Then there’s Piccolo Studio, known for Arise: A Simple Story, and is currently developing “a unique new IP”. Finally, Quebec City-based Yellow Brick Games, comprised of industry vets who’ve worked on Dragon Age, Assassin’s Creed, Rainbow Six, and more, is working on an “ambitious” new action RPG, and wants to create “rich, interactive worlds” with “emergent systems”.
As you may have gathered given how little we know about all of these projects, they’re all confirmed to be in early development right now. At the earliest, they will begin launching in Private Division parent company Take-Two Interactive’s fiscal year 2024.
Private Division also has a publishing agreement in place for the next game developed by Moon Studios, the developers of Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps, while internal studio Intercept Games is currently working on Kerbal Space Program 2.
