Private Division is partnering with Game Freak, the Japanese development team that created more than 30 entries in the Pokémon franchise to work on a new property — Project Bloom.
The project is still in the early stages of planning but the new action-adventure IP will be a new series for the developer. A piece of concept art was revealed today to give an idea of what players can expect from Project Bloom.
“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 honoured to be the first Western publisher to work alongside this exceptionally talented and proven team to bring a bold new IP to market.”
Aside from the concept art, we know little about Project Bloom. According to a press release, it is expected to launch during Take-Two’s FY 2026.
