Private Division announced as a new publishing arm of Take-Two

Take-Two Interactive have today announced the creation of a new publishing label called Private Division, this label is set to work with studios around the world and some of the industries most createive people.

“We have spent more than two years laying the groundwork for Private Division, building an experienced publishing team and signing projects with some the most respected and talented creative leaders in our industry,” said Michael Worosz, SVP and Head of Independent Publishing at Take-Two. “We see a growing number of independent studios in our industry creating high quality games based on new IP, and our focus is supporting these types of developers and projects, and ultimately bringing incredible experiences to gamers around the world.”

Private Division will publish several upcoming titles based on new IP from renowned industry creative talent, including the previously announced:
• Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey from Panache Digital Games, a studio led by the creator of the Assassin’s Creed franchise Patrice D├ęsilets; 
• An unannounced RPG currently codenamed Project Wight from The Outsiders, a studio founded by ex-DICE developers David Goldfarb and Ben Cousins; 
• An unannounced RPG from Obsidian Entertainment led by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, co-creators of Fallout; 
• An unannounced sci-fi first-person shooter from V1 Interactive, a studio founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto. 
• Additionally, Private Division is the publisher for Kerbal Space Program, which Take-Two acquired in May, 2017.

The amount of big budget games these people have shipped alone, is incredible, so given new resources and backing by one of the worlds largest publishers, I can't wait to see what they create.
