Saber Interactive, which is known for the successful switch port of The Witcher 3, is now part of the Embracer Group, the parent company of THQ Nordic.
Embracer Group, the parent company of THQ Nordic, announced that it had bought the Saber Interactive developer studio for an initial $ 150 million. The price can be adjusted up to $ 375 million depending on the milestones reached, which would at best make the purchase price $ 525 million.
Saber remains independent
"Saber has been on our radar for a long time because of its long history of consistently high quality. Her ambitious steps towards self-financing projects in recent years have been particularly impressive, especially with World War Z, which has sold more than 3 million copies Saber will remain an independent company within the Embracer Group, we look forward to working with them to improve their ability to create and market first-class titles, "said Embracer CEO Lars Wingefors.
This means that Saber Interactive, who developed The Witcher 3's excellent switch port, will continue to work independently. Several projects are currently in progress at the studio. Embracer has several well-known developer studios, including Tarsier, Volition and Coffee Stain.
