Embracer Group might be mulling over selling Gearbox Entertainment, one of its recently acquired studios. This comes after the shuttering of Volition after over three decades of operation.
A Reuters report claims that the Swedish holding company is looking at the future of Gearbox and its subsequent IPs like Borderlands and the recent Tomb Raider games after third-parties have shown interest in the IPs, according to two sources. Allegedly, Goldman Sachs and Aream & Co have entered the scene to help sell the notable company.
This is likely part of the same massive restructuring that Embracer is undergoing — the same one that led to Voloition’s closure. This is only a report, and none of the parties involved have made statements, but considering this Embracer, it’s not too hard to believe.
