In a new statement, game publisher Private Division has clarified that The Outer Worlds has now a new official publisher and it is not Take-Two.
There was much confusion from the fans after game company Take-Two recently shared a statement in regards to getting “involved” in the future of the franchise.
Take-Two President Karl Slatoff shared this statement in a Q4 earnings call:
And we will be participating in the franchise and whatever the future holds for that franchise. So we feel really good about it. And we think that it’s still building audience and this game itself has a lot of life left in it. And in the future — we’ll see what the future holds for it. But we do think it’s a long-term franchise and it is certainly something that we’re pleased with the results.
Private Division then quickly clarified that it is actually Obsidian and Microsoft who will be handling the publishing of the future iterations. It will be supporting the game, but moving forward, it will be those two.
Private Division is still supporting and marketing The Outer Worlds, including the upcoming release of Murder on Eridanos DLC on Nintendo Switch. Moving forward, Obsidian and Microsoft will be publishing future iterations in the franchise, and we’re absolutely thrilled to see where they take it.
The Outer Worlds is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
