Take-Two Forms Private Division To Publish Games From Veteran Indies

Obsidian Entertainment and The Outsiders fall under Take-Two's new label.

Take-Two Interactive Software announced today the formation of Private Division, a new publishing label within the company. Private Division is focused on publishing games from independent studios leds by veteran developers.

Private Division already has a lineup of studios under its banner. Panache Digital Games, the studio started by Assassin's Creed creator Patrice Désilets, will see Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey published through Private Division. Obsidian Entertainment will have an unannounced RPG published under the label. The Outsiders, founded by ex-DICE developers David Goldfarb and Ben Cousins, is bringing Project Wight to Private Division. V1 Interactive, a studio founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto, is working on an unannounced scifi shooter that will be published through the label. Finally, all Kerbal Space Program games will come under Private Division.

That's not a bad list for the beginning of a prestige indie label.

"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 be operated independently from 2K Games and Rockstar.
