Announced to coincide with Private Division’s fifth anniversary, the title is a new survival horror IP that’s in early development and not scheduled for release before calendar year 2025.
“Our next project is an exciting new survival horror game, which will help us become a leader in the horror industry at large,” said Bloober CEO Piotr Babieno.
“I am grateful for this cooperation with Private Division. Their expertise is extensive, and their people are also very approachable. We don’t perceive them in a typical ‘publisher-developer’ relationship; they’re more like a friend who shows us support or keeps us in line when we need it most.”
Private Division has also announced the launch of a development fund to support smaller indie teams with project financing and mentorship opportunities to enable them to self-publish their games.
“Since we announced Private Division five years ago, we’ve seen a number of promising game ideas from smaller teams that didn’t quite fit with our full-fledged publishing model,” said Blake Rochkind, Private Division’s head of business development.
“We knew we could not simply have a one-size-fits-all approach in today’s world. We never like to say ‘no’ to an incredible game concept due to the size of the project, and the Private Division Development Fund enables us to identify and support some of the best creative ideas our industry has to offer.”
Plans for a Silent Hill 2 remake were officially announced in October, when Bloober said it intends to recreate everything that made the original a classic while adding new elements to make the game world more immersive.
