    I'm going to play naive and say these games are excluded from that. I think the micro-transaction statement is for their bigger games.

    Yes, that kind of announcement most likely only pertains to their in-house games, not to this new private label they're creating for publishing independent titles.

    None of these games are likely to release before April 19 2019.

    Edit: Scratch "not likely". It's confirmed in a separate press release.

    At least they get to keep the IP, but about the publisher not having any negative influence... yeah, you hear that everytime anyway.

    When did they start working on this? Quite the dev cycle if it's not coming out until Q2 2019 at the earliest..add a bit of delay and we're talking 2 years from now.

    I believe around 2015?

    4 year development cycles are pretty typical especially if you create a new IP from scratch.

    Wow, now I really hope it's not just Fallout made hip with robot dinosaurs and no gender binary.

    That's 60-70 people on this project.

    Deadfire has a lot of people working on it.

    The Pathfinder game has some people working on it, if more content is on the way.

    I guess that these are all of their current projects?

    I see. But I doubt they are working with anything Tyranny related anymore?

    The people on the former Tyranny team may have been equally redistributed to the other teams, given that some of them are apparently working on PoE2.
