Saber Interactive is known for ports and some great games like World War Z and NBA Playgrounds. Now the developer has been purchased by Embracer Group. Bringing Saber Interactive under the same umbrella as Koch Meda, Deep Silver, Coffee Stain, Amplifier Game, and perhaps the more notorious THQ Nordic.

In an official press release Saber Interactive and Embracer Group spoke about the initial purchase of $150 million and if milestones are met $375 million. Making the deal worth $525 million in total.

“Saber has been on our radar for a very long time because of their deep history of consistently high-quality work. Their ambitious moves towards self-funding projects in recent years have been particularly impressive, especially with World War Z, which sold more than three million units. While Saber will remain a standalone company within Embracer Group, we look forward to collaborating with them to elevate their ability to create and market premier titles.”, says Lars Wingefors, Founder and CEO of Embracer Group.

“Over the course of 19 years as an independent developer, Saber has had its share of suitors. With Embracer Group, we’ve at last found the perfect partner. We could not be more thrilled to see through the many projects we’ve dreamed of together.” says Matthew Karch, Co-Founder and CEO of Saber Interactive.

Saber Interactive is currently working on World War Z. Providing new updates at a constant rate. Including variants of existing game modes.
