Interesting development for one of those most prolific developers for Mac gaming. Aspyr will continue to work independently and will retain the same leadership for at least the short term. Hopefully this doesn't negatively impact any future Mac projects that they may have planned.
For those who are unaware, Embracer Group seems to be the same organization as THQ Nordic (which itself is a new organization that spawned out of the ashes of THQ's bankruptcy). They have made waves in the gaming industry recently by just the sheer number of acquisitions that they have been making - buying up studios and IP left and right.
They also purchased Gearbox studios (Borderlands) around the same time.
Here are just some of the studios/IP that Embracer owns:
Embracer Group’s other groups include THQ Nordic GmbH, Koch Media GmbH/Deep Silver, Coffee Stain AB, Amplifier Game Invest, Saber Interactive, and Deca Games. Embracer Group has 57 internal game development studios in 40 countries.
