Embracer Group wants to make a lot of Deus Ex and Tomb Raider stuff


Swedish game dev vacuum cleaner Embracer Group (formerly THQ Nordic AB, not to be confused with subsidiary THQ Nordic GmbH) recently sucked up Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal, granting the conglomerate ownership of Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, and Thief. We’ve seen big properties change hands with mergers and continue to stagnate, but it sounds like the Embracer Group plans to actually use the stuff it just bought.

“After the end of the quarter, we further strengthened our development capabilities and IP-portfolio by entering into an agreement to acquire Crystal Dynamics, Eidos Montreal and Square Enix Montreal, including Tomb Raider, Deus Ex, Thief and Legacy of Kain and other IPs,” says Embracer Group’s 2021-22 fiscal year report. “The announcement got an overwhelming and positive response. We see a great potential, not only in sequels, but also in remakes, remasters, spinoffs as well as transmedia projects across the Group. We expect the transaction to close in the July-September period.”
