In the recent past, THQ Nordic has bought up a number of new game studios and brought them under its own wing. In this case, the parent company Embracer Group has struck, but it is all the more remarkable.

The group Embracer Group, to which the very busy THQ Nordic belongs, has struck again and brought another developer studio under its wing. In exceptional cases, the transaction was not processed via THQ Nordic itself, but the deal is nevertheless extremely remarkable.
So you have now secured the services of the developer studio Saber Interactive – and that cost you a lot of money. The base amount is said to be already at $ 150 million, and an additional $ 375 million could be due depending on how the studio per forms in the next three years.
Saber Interactive has made a name for itself in the market and last year it caught the eye with the release of World War Z, which was still published by publisher Focus Home Interactive. The zombie spectacle based on the movie of the same name was very convincing and sold over three million copies.
In addition, the studio's vita also includes a number of switch implementations of well-known titles, including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Vampyr or Call of Cthulhu. Accordingly, according to Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors, Saber Interactive was "on the radar for a very long time" of the new owner.
Most recently, Saber Interactive made headlines when the services of former id software veteran Tim Willits could be secured as the new CCO.
