Three more studios are adding to Private Division's growing library of games. The Take-Two Interactive publishing label announced today that Moon Studios, League of Geeks, and Roll7 have all signed publishing agreements with the division.
Each of those studios hails from very different backgrounds. Moon Studios is the team behind the Ori series, both Blind Forest and the Will of the Wisps, and recently appeared during Xbox's July showcase to announce forthcoming Series X optimizations for the gorgeous action-platformer. League of Geeks is the studio behind digital-tabletop fantasy game Armello, and Roll7 developed the 2D skateboarding series OlliOlli.
Nothing's been set in stone about what kind of games these studios will be developing under the Private Division label, though there has been at least one hint. Thomas Mahler, game director at Moon Studios, posted on ResetEra, saying the team's goal is to "craft an ARPG that'll set all-new standards." Mahler name-checks The Legend of Zelda, the Souls series, and Diablo, so that gives you an idea of what they're thinking about at the moment.
Private Division has published a number of games since its formation in 2017, ranging from The Outer Worlds and Disintegration to the upcoming Kerbal Space Program 2. It'll be interesting to see what these studios come up with under the label, but don't expect to see the results too soon. According to the press release, all three games are in early development, and the first is not expected to launch until at least April 2021.
