Embracer planning for Square Enix IP “remakers, remasters, spinoffs” and more

Get ready.

Embracer Group has detailed its plans for a number of former Square Enix IPs including Tomb Raider, Deus Ex and Thief, saying it sees potential in “remakes, remasters, spinoffs” and more.

The statement was made as part of a quarterly earnings report.

“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,” Embracer’s statement began.

“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.”

Detailed at the beginning of May, the acquisition is expected to close by the end of September 2022.
