What a year for Toys For Bob, eh? The studio announced it was going independent back in February, and has now confirmed it'll partner with Xbox to publish its next title.

The developer, which broke away from Activision-Blizzard and Microsoft when the two became one, announced the partnership on X (formerly Twitter).

Xbox signs Toys For Bob's next game

As reposted by Xbox boss Phil Spencer, the post says "We're excited to announce that we'll be partnering with @Xbox to publish our next new game."

"We're still very early in development, so you might not hear from us for a bit - but know that we're working hard on an experience we're so sooo inspired about! Can't wait to share more"

Toys For Bob developed the Skylands franchise while at Activision, before remaking the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro trilogies. Prior to going independent, it had worked alongside other studios on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and 3, Warzone, and Crash Team Rumble.
