Publisher Private Division and Pokémon developer Game Freak have announced a partnership to publish an action-adventure game based on a new IP.
Codenamed Project Bloom, Game Freak's upcoming action-adventure game is currently in early development. The announcement was accompanied by the very first piece of concept art from the title, which shows a lone figure standing resolutely in a forest of massive trees.
"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 at 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 currently expected to launch at some point during Take-Two Interactive's fiscal year 2026, which lasts between April 2025 and March 2026.
The announcement did not include any details regarding targeted platforms, but we'll hear more about the game as we get closer to release.
