Private Division to open new Seattle studio for Kerbal Space Program 2

Take-Two's indie games label Private Division is setting up shop in Seattle.

The firm revealed that it is opening a new studio in the area to focus on Kerbal Space Program 2, with key members of staff from the team joining this new venture. Studio head Jeremy Ables, creative director Nate Simpson and lead producer Nate Robinson are among the talent that is moving from the project's original team to Private Division Seattle.

“Since we acquired Kerbal Space Program in 2017, we have consistently produced, high-quality content for our community, which in turn has resulted in strong growth, both in terms of new players engaging with the franchise and our ambitions to take it to the next level,” Private Division EVP and boss Michael Worosz (pictured) said.

“The opening of this new studio, whose purpose is dedicated solely to the ongoing development of KSP, is a reinforcement of our promise to bring the best experiences to our fans and players for Kerbal Space Program 2 and beyond.”

Kerbal Space Program 2 was announced at the Gamescom Opening Night Live in August 2019 and took the game's original creator by surprise.

Take-Two opened Private Division in December 2017, with the team saying that it sees itself as the risk-takers in the Grand Theft Auto firm's roster.
