The publisher behind Take-Two Interactive Software announced a new partnership with three new developers – Moon Studios, League of Geeks and Roll7.
This partnership will expand Private Division’s portfolio of games which currently includes the Kerbal Space Program, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey and The Outer Worlds. Executive vice president and head of Private Division, Michael Worosz said:
“Our partnerships with Moon Studios, League of Geeks, and Roll7 continue to enhance Private Division’s roster with more of the game industry’s best creative talent from around the world. We are thrilled to work alongside these experienced developers to provide them with the support needed to propel their creative visions to the next level.”
Moon Studios is a BAFTA award-winning studio best known for developing titles such as Will of the Wisps and Orin and the Blind Forest. The partnership with Private Division will see this studio focusing on developing brand new action RPGs.
Thomas Mahler and Gennadiy Korol, co-founders of Moon Studios said: “Developing the Ori series over the last decade has been a fantastic experience for our team, and we’re thrilled to now be aiming our sights even higher with a new action RPG.”
League of Geeks is well-known for their work on the digital board game, Armello. This time, the Australian team will be working on an “ambitious new video game and intellectual property in partnership with Private Division.”
“This partnership provides the opportunity for us to grow our studio alongside our ambitions to create something beyond anything we’ve developed before,” said Blake Mizzi, co-founder and director of League of Geeks.
Roll7 is a multi-award-winning studio behind Laser League, the OlliOlli series and Not a Hero. They will be working with Private Division on their “mission to create awesome, flow-state games”.
As a result of this series of new partnerships, Private Division promises to announce more details about each project soon. The three titles planned with each of these partners are all currently in early development so there are no release dates yet. However, the first title is expected to launch in 2022, so we’ll have quite a wait on our hands to see what they all come up with.
While we have no details yet on any of these games, given the history of these developers, we’re expecting some unique and interesting games to come out of these partnership deals. If we hear any updates, we’ll keep you posted. So be sure to check back at WePC for the latest gaming news.
