Take-Two’s Private Division label has signed a deal with Japanese developer Game Freak.

The studio is working on a new title, which will be given the working title Project Bloom. This is said to be an action-adventure IP to be released by Take-Two in fiscal year 2026.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to create a new IP that is bold and sonically different from our previous work,” said Game Freak director Kota Furushima.

“From the start, Private Division was the publisher we wanted to work with on our new game. Their track record and global expertise gives us the confidence to create an immersive new action-adventure game that we look forward to sharing more about in the future.”

Michael Worosz, Take-Two’s Chief Strategy Officer and Head of Private Division, added, “Over the past three decades, it’s been difficult to find a studio that has released more iconic hits than Game Freak. We’re ready to help Game Freak unlock their potential, and we’re honored to be the first Western publisher to work with this exceptionally talented and proven team to bring a bold new intellectual property to market.”

Though best known for the Pokemon franchise, Game Freak has worked on other IPs such as Giga Wrecker for Rising Star Games and Tembo the Badass Elephant with Sega.
