Embracer Group sells Saber Interactive studios and assets, including games like Space Marines 2 and the Knights of the Old Republic remake.


Saber Interactive has severed ties with Embracer Group, buying back the rights to most of its own work as well as the network of studios and contractors.

Saber co-founder Matthew Karch recently formed Beacon Interactive, a holding company funded by private investors, which purchased Saber along with several of its subsidiaries for $247 million (via VGC). The companies purchased include over 3,000 developers and include Mad Head, Digital, Nimble Giant, Fractured Byte, Slipgate, 3D Realms, New World Interactive, SPL, Stuntworks, ByteX, 4A Games, and Zen Studios. However, ZEN and 4A are subject to an option to buy within a certain time period – including these, the purchase price increases to approximately $500 million, if you also include the value of the shares and liabilities being exchanged. .
