Perfect World becomes Gearbox Publishing San Francisco

Blink and you'd have missed it.

Perfect World Entertainment is now officially Gearbox Publishing San Francisco.

We’re admittedly a bit late on this one; the name change was declared last month as a result of Perfect World’s acquisition by Embracer Group and subsequent placement under the Gearbox Publishing family.

It’s business as usual over at Gearbox Publishing San Francisco, meaning active work on popular MMORPGs Neverwinter and Star Trek Online alongside other titles such as Have a Nice Death, Torchlight and Remnant From the Ashes.

Embracer Group acquired Perfect World alongside Dark Horse and other properties back in December 2021. It recently acquired studios including Crystal Dynamics, Eidos and Square Enix Montreal from Square Enix itself.

Star Trek Online is available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
