Take-Two’s Indie publishing label Private Division has ended its publishing agreement with The Outsiders according to GameSpot.
The label which launched in 2017 following several years of interest in the sector by Take-Two, began with four different publishing deals involving four new titles. One of those was Project Wright, now named Darkborn developed by The Outsiders. A company founded by David Goldfarb, his previous work includes Battlefield 3 and Payday 2.
The reason for the split is unclear as are the financial implications. Private Division claims to have continued to financially support the studio for several months following the end of their agreement.
It is unknown if The Outsiders will look for a new publishing deal following this split or self-publish Darkborn.
Private Divisions other publishing agreements for Panache Digital Games Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey, V1 Interactive’s title Disintegration and The Outer Worlds by Obsidian Entertainment appear to be on track.
"Private Division ended our publishing agreement with The Outsiders at the end of last year," stated Private Division
“We supported the studio financially for several months after ending the deal, and we wish David Goldfarb and the rest of the talented team the very best with the game and their future endeavours."
