Private Division Announces Publishing Partnership With Pokemon Developer Game Freak

Private Division announced a partnership to publish a new game from developer Gamer Freak. The Japanese studio was founded in 1989 and has since created more than 30 entries in the Pokemon franchise, among other titles. Private Division will publish the newest game from the team, set to be an action-adventure based on a new IP codenamed Project Bloom.

Currently, all that is revealed about the game is the concept art.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to create new IP that is bold and tonally different from our prior work,” said Kota Furushima, Director at Game Freak. “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.”

“Over the past three decades, you’d be hard pressed to find a studio which has released more iconic hits than Game Freak,” said Michael Worosz, Chief Strategy Officer, Take-Two Interactive, and Head of Private Division. “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.”

Project Bloom is in early development and does not yet have an announced release date. It is expected to launch during Take-Two’s Fiscal Year 2026. Private Division and Game Freak look forward to sharing more details about this game in the future.
