Game Freak announces new action-adventure game Project Bloom

Project Bloom

Longtime Pokemon studio Game Freak has dabbled in other games and now they’ve announced Project Bloom, a brand new action-adventure game.

Details on the new IP are scant however Project Bloom is reportedly a codename, and it’s being published by Take-Two subsidiary Private Division. A single piece of artwork (by NieR: Automata artist Kazuma Koda) was revealed, which you can view above.

A release for Project Bloom is set for sometime in Take-Two’s 2026 fiscal year, which runs from April 2025 through Marc 2026, so the game is likely very early in development.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to create new IP that is bold and tonally different from our prior work,” Game Freak director Kota Furushima said. “From the beginning, Private Division was the publisher we wanted to work with on our new game. Their track record and global expertise give us all the confidence to create a sweeping new action-adventure game that we can’t wait to share more about in the future.”

Take-Two chief strategy officer and Private Division head Michael Worosz added, “We’re ready to help Game Freak unleash their potential and we’re honored to be the first Western publisher to work alongside this exceptionally talented and proven team to bring a bold new IP to market.”
