The Embracer group is clearly recruiting to account for all of these new games in development. “The total workforce increased 93% to 5,730 (2,970), while the total number of game developers increased 92% to 4,325 (2,258),” the report said. That’s almost double the number of integrated game developers in the space of a year.
We reported in May 2020 that Embracer Group had 69 unannounced games in development, so hopefully we will know more about all these new projects in the near future. At this point, the group also had 118 games in development, so they’ve embarked on 32 new projects since May of last year.
The group could easily add more games to this list following their latest round of acquisitions, which included pioneers of the Aspyr Media port and developer of Borderlands Gearbox, which he picked up earlier this month for $ 1.3 billion. One game he apparently won’t help create is Little Nightmares 3, with the developer Tarsier is now focusing on the new IP.
