Private Division, a publishing division of Take-Two, has announced the acquisition of OlliOlli developer Roll7.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Roll7 to the Private Division family,” said Private Division boss Michael Worosz. “As a team passionate about action sports ourselves, seeing how Roll7 combines the thrill of competition with the zen of achieving flow-state in a videogame is remarkable, and we can’t wait to show the world this phenomenon with our release of OlliOlli World this winter.”
Roll7 worked on lesser known PC and mobile games, before breaking onto the scene with the excellent skateboarding game OlliOlli on PlayStation Vita in 2014. The developer is currently working on OlliOlli World, with Private Division as publisher, which is due to launch this winter.
“Private Division has been an incredible publishing partner for OlliOlli World, and we’re elated to continue to grow as a studio as part of the label,” said Roll7 co-CEO Simon Bennett. “Private Division has empowered our amazing team to raise the bar on our creativity and scope for OlliOlli World. Joining the label puts us in a great position to continue to grow and to set our sights on achieving our ambition to become a pre-eminent global videogames developer."
