The Embracer Group has clearly been on a hiring spree to account for all of these new games in development. “Total headcount increased 93% to 5,730 (2,970) where total game developers increased 92% to 4,325 (2,258),” the report reads. That’s nearly double the number of game developers onboarded in the space of a year.
We reported back in May of 2020 that Embracer Group had 69 unannounced games in development, so hopefully we’ll hear more about all of these new projects in the near future. At that point, the group also had 118 games in development, so its embarked on a whopping 32 new projects since May of last year.
The group could easily add more games to this list in the wake of its latest string of acquisitions, which included port pioneers Aspyr Media and Borderlands developer Gearbox, which it picked up earlier this month for $1.3 Billion. One game it seemingly won’t be helping make is Little Nightmares 3, with developer Tarsier now focusing on new IP.
