Announcing Private Division, a new label from Take-Two Interactive Software publishing games from top independent development studios.

Lootboxes confirmed: https://www.pcgamesn.com/take-two-service-games-only
Every Take-Two game will have microtransactions from now on

“We aim to have recurrent consumer spending options for every title that we put out at this company.
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.

Studio Parnter:
Obsidian Entertainment
Game: Unannounced RPG

The role-playing veterans at Obsidian are using their Private Division partnership to reunite original Fallout creators Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky for a new game set in a new universe.

“It was the opportunity to work with Tim on a new IP that we were creating from scratch again, because we did it on Fallout and Arcanum and those were great experiences and I just missed doing that, says Boyarsky, who most recently worked on Diablo III for Blizzard. “I missed working on single-player, in-depth RPGs with a lot of choice, consequence, and reactivity. I like making other types of games, but there is something special about the kind of games we started with Fallout that really appeals to us and speaks to us creatively.”

The duo plans to reveal more about the project at a later date, but Cain says “If people have liked our previous RPGs they're going to like this one in terms of how we make reactive worlds and especially our style of humor.”

Also from that article: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/featu...es-new-publishing-label-private-division.aspx

“I think it has all the strengths of the traditional publisher relationship but because we get to retain ownership of the IP, it's one of the things where I don't think we're worried about our goals aligning with the publisher goals,” says Obsidian Entertainment’s Tim Cain, who has reunited with fellow Fallout co-creator Leonard Boyarsky to develop a new RPG under the Private Division label. “We both want to see the IP be very successful because we are both vested in it.”

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?

There's also a "small idea" project: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2...n-raid-obsidians-cancelled-xbox-one-exclusive

Currently, however, Obsidian's hands are full, the 175-person studio occupied across four and a half projects: the Tyranny expansion, Pillars of Eternity 2, a small Pathfinder card game, a small idea the studio is "spinning up" and a considerable something else.
I see. But I doubt they are working with anything Tyranny related anymore?

They were at least when the article was published.

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.
