The 5 Most Important Studios Owned by Embracer Group 

There are tons of video game developers and publishers that create the games we all love. Developers and publishers work in tandem to make sure games cross the finish line and get into the hands of players.

For those unaware, Embracer Group is a holding company that owns 10 major publishing labels and over 100 development studios under those.

Today we are going to look at the five major game studios that fall under the Embracer Group umbrella.

Crystal Dynamics

The studio already announced earlier this year that they are already at work on developing the next Tomb Raider game using Unreal Engine 5 which will be the biggest game to come from an Embracer Group-owned studio.

Gearbox is best known for developing the Borderlands franchise, and the IP came along in the deal. However, Embracer Group will forego being the publisher of the series as 2K Games will still remain the publisher of all games in the series.



Volition has been around in some form since the early 90s, but didn’t really reach mainstream status until they released the original Saints Row back in 2006.

Aspyr Media has been one of the biggest port studios in the industry for over 20 years now. Aspyr Media has done porting work on major franchises such as Call of Duty, Star Wars, and Civilization.

4A Games are the developers behind the post-apocalyptic Metro series. Acquired as part of the Koch Media and Deep Silver acquisition, 4A Games has released one game since becoming part of Embracer Group with Metro Exodus back in 2019.
