Project Bloom Private Division X Game Freak

Today Take-Two's publishing line Private Division announced a rather peculiar partnership with Pokemon developer Game Freak to create a game code-named "Project Bloom."

The game is a new action-adventure IP and we get to see the first concept art, which you can enjoy above.

The game is in early development and is expected to release during Take-Two's fiscal year 2026, which means that we're going to have to wait a while. That translates into the year between April 2025 and March 2026.

The announcement was accompanied by a statement from Game Freak director Kota Furushima.

We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to create new IP that is bold and tonally different from our prior work. 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.

We also hear from Michael Worosz, Chief Strategy Officer at Take-Two Interactive and Head of Private Division.

Over the past three decades, you’d be hard pressed to find a studio which has released more iconic hits than Game Freak. 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.

Private Division is known for quite a few interesting titles it published as of late, including The Outer Worlds and Hades, on top of Kerbal Space Program 2 which is currently in early access.
