Private Division and Bloober Team are partnering for new survival horror IP

Private Division

Private Division and developer Bloober Team have announced a new partnership to publish a new, unannounced survival horror IP.

Furthermore, the publisher also announced a Development Fund to help support smaller, independent game developers with financing and mentorship opportunities – even letting developers still self-publisher their own games.

“Whether we’re partnering with established developers like Bloober Team, or smaller independent studios embarking on new projects, we strive to work with teams who are among the absolute best at their craft and support them in their bold and creative ambitions,” said Michael Worosz, Chief Strategy Officer, Take-Two Interactive, and Head of Private Division. “It’s exciting to grow our portfolio into a new genre by adding one of Europe’s most successful independent teams to our talented roster of development partners.”

Bloober Team’s new title is early in development and doesn’t have a release date, and is not expected to launch before calendar 2025.

“Our next project is an exciting new survival-horror game, which will help us become a leader in the horror industry at large,” said Piotr Babieno, Chief Executive Officer of Bloober Team. “I am grateful for this cooperation with Private Division. Their expertise is extensive, and their people are also very approachable. We don’t perceive them in a typical ‘publisher-developer’ relationship; they’re more like a friend who shows us support or keeps us in line when we need it most.”

The publisher’s new Development Fund is already supporting several development studios, including Die Gute Fabrik, Radical Forge, and Lost Native.

“Since we announced Private Division five years ago, we’ve seen a number of promising game ideas from smaller teams that didn’t quite fit with our full-fledged publishing model,” said Blake Rochkind, Head of Business Development at Private Division. “We knew we could not simply have a one-size-fits-all approach in today’s world. We never like to say ‘no’ to an incredible game concept due to the size of the project, and the Private Division Development Fund enables us to identify and support some of the best creative ideas our industry has to offer.”
