The study firmly believes that emerging systems can bring rich, interactive game worlds to life. On this basis Yellow Brick Games is working on a new, ambitious action RPG.

"I find this challenge exciting: to build a new studio full of incredible talent, ambitious ideas and a true dedication to our product, taking risks that may not be acceptable in the development of an AAA game, "said Mike Laidlaw, creative director at Yellow Brick Games. "We want to present a very special debut title: the collaboration with Private Division gives the team the support they need to create a truly memorable game."
