Private Division, a label of publishing giant Take-Two, has announced that they have purchased Roll7, the developers of the OlliOlli franchise.
We’re thrilled to welcome Roll7 to the Private Division family,” said Michael Worosz, Executive Vice President and Head of Private Division. “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.”
“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 Simon Bennett, Co-CEO at Roll7. “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.”
OlliOlli World is set to be released in the winter (or at least sometime before March 31st 2022) for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Switch.
In OlliOlli World players will be able to customise their skaters, their trick list, and styles. Players will explore the world of Radland in the search of the skate Gods so they can reach Gnarvana. Every level will have multiple paths with different things to explore on each of these paths. The controls have been worked on so new players to the series can pull off better combos, while those who have experience with the OlliOlli games will find new challenges to conquer.
Roll7 have released a number of games in the OlliOlli franchise, the latest being OlliOlli: Switch Stance for Nintendo Switch. However, they have another unnuanced game in production.
