Take-Two forms indie publishing label Private Division

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through tom.bramwell@allgamers.com and he's also on Twitter.

Has games from Patrice Désilets, The Outsiders and Fallout co-creators on its books.

Take-Two Interactive has announced the formation of a new indie label, Private Division, which will work with independent game developers to provide publishing support for their upcoming titles.

Two years in the making, the New York, Seattle and Munich-based label already has five games on its books, and while they are certainly independent, they have pretty impressive stature.

First there's Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey from Panache Digital Games, better known as the new thing from Assassin's Creed co-creator Patrice Désilets. Then there's Project Wight, which is the codename for the game developed by DICE veterans David Goldfarb and Ben Cousins at their studio The Outsiders.

Beyond that, there are two unannounced titles that should get pulses racing. One is an RPG from Obsidian Entertainment being led by Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky, co-creators of Fallout. The other is a science-fiction first-person shooter from V1 Interactive, a studio founded by Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto.

The fifth and final game we know about so far on Private Division's books is indie in style more than substance, having been acquired by Take-Two in May 2017: it's Kerbal Space Program.

Private Division definitely sounds like a label to watch.
