Embracer Group sells off Saber Interactive studios and assets, including games like Space Marine 2 and Knights of the Old Republic remake

Saber Interactive has parted ways with Embracer Group, buying back the rights to its own work as well as much of its network of studios and contractors. 

Saber co-founder Matthew Karch recently formed Beacon Interactive, a holding company funded by private investors that has purchased Saber, alongside many of its subsidiaries, for a whopping $247 million (via VGC). The purchased companies account for over 3,000 developers and include Mad Head, DIGIC, Nimble Giant, Fractured Byte, Slipgate, 3D Realms, New World Interactive, SPL, Stuntworks, Bytex, 4A Games and Zen Studios. However, Zen and 4A are subject to an option to buy within a certain time period – with these included, however, the purchase price rockets up to around $500 million if you include the value of the shares and liabilities being exchanged too.
