Take-Two: You’re our Private Division, a Division for money, you’ll do what we want you to do.
Take-Two Interactive is one of the world’s largest video game publishers. It already owns Rockstar and 2K Games, which means it has Grand Theft Auto, Read Dead Redemption, Civilization, Borderlands, BioShock, and a whole stack of 2K Sports games on its books.
Now, echoing the likes of the Square Enix Collective (The Turing Test, Pine) and EA Originals (Unravel, A Way Out), Take-Two announce the creation of their own indie-focused sub-division, Private Division.
Here’s what you can expect to see on the Private Division label:
Forthcoming Private Division titles
- Obsidian – unannounced RPG
- The Outsiders – Project Wight (working title)
- Panache Digital Games – Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey
- V1 Interactive – unannounced first person shooter
Current Private Division (Take-Two) titles
- Squad – Kerbal Space Program (plus Enhanced Edition, Making History Expansion)
Now, based on that list, you could argue that Take-Two has a funny definition of indie. Obsidian is one of the most famous purveyors of role-playing games around, and Kerbal Space Program – while it might feel a little MacGyver – has around 2 million owners on Steam at the time of writing.
Still, it’s a hell of an early lineup. And maybe if things are on the Private Division label, they’ll be kept out of the micro payments debacle that rather marred the release of NBA 2K18.
