Private Division signs four new projects

Take-Two's mid-tier label Private Division has signed four new publishing agreements.

The firm is set to publish new titles from developers Die Gute Fabrik, Evening Star, Piccolo Studio, and Yellow Brick Games.

Die Gute Fabrik was founded back in 2008 and is best-known for story-driven titles, such as Mutazione. Meanwhile, Evening Star, was founded by Christian Whitehead, Dave Padilla, Tom Fry, Hunter Bridges, and Brad Flick, all of whom worked on Sonic Mania Plus.

Third on the list, Piccolo Studio, made its debut with Arise: A Simple Story, which launched in 2019. Finally, there's Yellow Brick Games, a developer set up by veterans of Ubisoft and BioWare, Thomas Giroux, Mike Laidlaw, Jeff Skalski, and Frederic St-Laurent B.

“At Private Division we champion the best creative talent in the games industry, and these four teams and the experiences that they are building represent an array of genres that will appeal to many different gaming audiences,” Private Division boss and EVP Michael Worosz (pictured) said.

“Die Gute Fabrik, Evening Star, Piccolo Studio, and Yellow Brick Games each have their own wildly diverse creative visions, and we’re thrilled to help introduce their games to the world.”

This comes in the wake of Private Division acquiring OlliOlli maker Roll7 in January of this year.
