If we thought Xbox Game Studios was setting the trend with studio buying, it’s because you don’t follow Embracer Group much. This company, mother of Koch Media and THQ Nordic, has 46 incredible studios if we add the last 11 it has acquired.
Flying Wild Dog and 10 other studios join Embracer Group
Of all the teams, which we will detail below, the most famous is Flying Wild Hog. This Polish development studio is responsible for Shadow Warrior and Hard Reset for which it has spent 115.4 million euros. The acquisition, which includes the three studios in Warsaw, Rzeszów and Krakow with a total of more than 260 employees, “underscores Koch Media’s ambition to grow as a global gaming leader,” the company says. Flying Wild Hog will continue to operate independently. In addition to this study, he acquired:
