The Embracer Group has completed a new wave of acquisitions and the overall range is fairly extensive. It includes Easy Trigger, 3D Realms, Slipgate Ironworks, Force Field, Ghost Ship Games, Grimfrost, CrazyLabs and DigixArt. Easy Trigger is known for action platformer Huntdown and will be joining Coffee Stain to “boost the development of first party IP within the group.” It will continue working on Huntdown along with creating new indie titles.

Then there’s Ghost Ship Games which is known for the co-op first person shooter Deep Rock Galactic. It will remain autonomous though Embracer and Coffee Stain will support it with “new game development projects.” DigixArt is known for 11-11 Memories Retold and the upcoming Road 96 – it will remain independent under Koch Media.

3D Realms and Slipgate Ironworks are interesting though. The former will with Saber Interactive going forward and has six new titles in the works, though CEO Mike Nielsen is setting down in favor of Frederik Schreiber. Slipgate (which is working on Graven) has been acquired for its “proven expertise in development, co-development and porting.” It’s been acquired under Saber Interactive, which means it should be working with the team going forward.
