If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Completely forgot Babylon's Fall existed , but isn't that game being made by Platinum Games?

Sure, but like OP said this is encompassing "internal and external" action games, reasonably including publishing partnership on Babylon's Fall.
It's kind of a weird announcement because who care's if it's not a new studio or even reorganization of studio,
it's just putting their action game business in separately managed holding company with new "brand".
Could potentially facilitate a sale of this new unit, but I don't see specific indication of that intention at all.
