Embracer abandons other studies, Star Wars KOTOR Remake and Borderlands among the victims

Embracer’s plan to reduce costs through the sale of acquired studios continues, and this time it’s up to Saber Interactive which, among many projects, is currently working on the Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic remake.\r\nThe long-awaited project is already in a dangerous situation, and this news certainly does not bode well for the near future of the remake.\r\nEmbracer was at the center of a very turbulent year which led to the sale of many studios, after acquisitions millionaires, as well as a series of important layoffs.\r\nThe situation is so tense that it led to the dismissal of top figures in the company last year, and which seems to be far from over.\r\nAs reported by Jason Schreier in a report Bloomberg exclusive, Embracer is in the process of selling Saber Interactive for $500 million.\r\n\r\nSaber will become a private company with about 3,500 employees, said Schreier’s source close to the situation, who asked not to be identified identified regarding non-public information. This is, at the moment, the most impressive maneuver among those that Embracer has launched in recent years.\r\nThe company plans to continue developing Star Wars KOTOR Remake, but the situation is certainly turbulent and it is not a given that development can continue peacefully.\r\nIn a subsequent exchange with a follower who mentioned Gearbox as Embracer’s next sales target, Schreier commented with a laconic “stay tuned”, suggesting that similar news could also arrive for the studio responsible for Borderlands.\r\nMany studios have been affected by Embracer’s layoffs, from the authors of Neverwinter to the group of developers that produced the company’s most important IPs.\r\nAt the moment it is not possible to understand exactly the fate of Star Wars KOTOR Remake which, in any case, remains in development and has not yet been cancelled.
