Embracer Group has 118 in development and 31 studios under its umbrella.
Embracer Group, formerly THQ Nordic AB, and before that Nordic Games, has grown a lot over the couple of years. According to the latest annual report, it’s got a 118 games in development. Most of them, and more specifically 69, are yet to be announced.
Some of these games might never be released, but still it’s an absurd number. On the other hand, it shouldn’t be a surprise. So many developers are attached to its subsidiaries.
After it snatched up much of THQ’s catalogue back in 2016, along with its name, the company quickly started acquiring developers and publishers. Coffee Stain and Koch Media were in that list too. It’s now got 31 studios and five main subsidiaries. Quite impressive numbers.
Through these studios, a lot of retired series are back. The most recent is Comanche, but they’re responsible for a pretty diverse roster of games. Starting from Snowrunner to Deep Rock Galactic. Snowrunner’s Saber Interactive is its latest acquisition. It’s apparently spurred on by the surprising success of middling zombie shooter World War Z.
This year’s upcoming releases include Biomutant, Chorus, Destroy all Humans and Wasteland 3. Their last report teases that there are a lot more games that haven’t been revealed.
You can see a full list of Embracer Group’s announced games in the full presentation, though some of them are very much up in the air. Dead Island 2, for instance, has been MiA for six years. It’s passing from developer to developer without any news. Obviously it is still being made.
