World War Z Developer Saber Interactive Acquired By THQ Nordic Parent Company

Embracer Group, the parent company of THQ Nordic, has purchased Saber Interactive – the studio behind World War Z and the Switch port of The Witcher 3.

The deal could hit a maximum of $375 million, and Saber’s past success as an independent studio – World War Z sold more than three million units according to Embracer – was one of the reasons Embracer purchased the New Jersey studio.

Embracer founder and CEO Lars Wingefors says that Saber will remain independent, which he notes has been a key ingredient in the developer’s story so far. “Their ambitious moves towards self-funding projects in recent years have been particularly impressive,” he says.

Tim Willits, former id Software studio director and current CCO of Saber, in a tweet said he is “thrilled” at the move, adding it “puts Saber on a much bigger world stage. Good times ahead.”
