Saber Interactive has had a measure of success outside of their role as the World War Z developer. While their co-op zombie survival game has done pretty well by selling a million copies, they also have the recent Nintendo Switch port of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to their credit.

Embracer Group’s founder and CEO Lars Wingefors emphasizes that Saber Interactive will still be able to operate independently in their new role as a subsidiary of the company, noting that this has been key to the success of many other developers acquired in similar situations.

“Their ambitious moves towards self-funding projects in recent years have been particularly impressive.”
