Roll7 are joining the Private Division Family

Today I am truly honored to announce that Roll7 is now part of the Private Division Family. After 13 years on the road as an independent studio, finding our feet, working with a wide range partners and learning a bunch about this amazing industry – its time for us to commit to a long-term partner.

Private Division has supported us over the last two years with OlliOlli World, and have shown us that not only are they are top tier publisher, but their values of diversity, transparency and honesty align very closely with ours. Earlier this year, Allen Murray reached out to us to ask us what was next for the Studio, and we shared our latest prototypes and a wider Vision for the studio’s future, redefining the extreme sports video games genre. We spent the best part of this year discussing culture, values and ambition (and alot about Flow State) – and here we are!

This wouldn’t have been possible without the remarkable team of over 70 amazing people that we count as our family, and we are very excited to be able to commit to a very exciting new IP roadmap for the Studio with them. Huge thanks to Ed Tomaszewski, Michael Worosz, Philip Leyshon, Chris Hainsworth, Alex Chapman, SEN SENTHURAN, Nisha Minhas, MCIPD for your great work on the deal. And a massive thanks to my best mates Thomas Hegarty and John Ribbins. Watch this space for some VERY exciting new games!!!
